Quoteworthy: Keith Jardine On Possible Move To Heavyweight

New, 4 comments

Keith Jardine speaks via Dave Meltzer on if he beats Rampage Jackson at UFC 96:

Jardine also has an answer if he does win.

“I’m going to have a long career,” he said. “I have no problem jumping to heavyweight. I’m going to be here a long time and things will work out.”

That statement was basically in reference to Jardine possibly fighting teammate Rashad Evans for his UFC LHW title.  Both fighters have publically stated that they would not fight one another if presented with the match up.  Jardine moving to heavyweight would be interesting in that he's a decently sized light heavyweight.  However, he would be dwarfed against guys like Gabriel Gonzaga, Shane Carwin, Frank Mir, and Brock Lesnar.  How do you think he would fair?
