Luis Cane Wants Keith Jardine Next?

New, 5 comments

Cane recently conducted an interview with Tatame to wit:

Who do you think can be your next opponent?

Maybe they put me against (Keith) Jardine, a tough fighter, another Top 10, but I won’t choose opponents. I’ll wait for Joe Silva decide who I’ll fight and I’m sure it won’t be easy, they’ll put me another great fighter and that’s what I want. I’m ready for that and I want to be between the best.
Cane doesn't actually call out Jardine, but he does mention his name when there's a lot of fighters he could have mentioned. Actually, I think this is probably the next logical fight for both guys. If Cane could get passed the "Dean Of Mean" that would cement him as a contender in the stacked LHW division. Both fighters are tough and seem to enjoy taking punishment during their fights. Cane mentions he went into the Sokoudjou fight with an elbow injury that will require minor surgery. He states that he'll be out of action for about 3 weeks before resuming his training schedule. So we could possibly see this fight around February or March if the bouts are signed.

Who do you have your money on?
