Greg Jackson Takes The Blame For Jardine’s Loss

(Jackson’s post-fight mea culpa to

In a way, it’s nice of trainer Greg Jackson to say that Keith Jardine‘s knockout loss to Wanderlei Silva on Saturday night was his fault, but it’s also a little weird. Saying that he should have “reiterated the game plan a little more” seems like an odd explanation. As if the only thing that stood between Jardine and victory was Jackson reminding him one more time not to get punched in the head really hard.

I could almost understand the game plan explanation if the fight weren’t over so quickly. As it was, Jardine didn’t get much of a chance to put any game plan into practice. He got caught with a couple of hard shots early on, which is rarely a part of anyone’s game plan. Jackson taking the blame for that seems either blatantly egocentric or like a clumsy attempt to make his fighter feel better. Because Cage Potato likes to assume the best about people whenever given the opportunity, we’re going to say that it’s the latter.

Feel better, Keith.

Uh oh! I'm the victim of something as original as a gay joke from "anonymous Internet guy #56,543" who could actually muster the brain power to copy my name (even WITH capitalization!). Were you able to come up with that game plan on your own or did Jackson help you out?

10 to 1 if I could check the IP listing, it would come from AOL's pool of addresses.

“reiterated the game plan a little more”

What? Murder-suicide involving a large-caliber handgun?

Liddell is the guy you can beat with a gameplan. I've watched old Silva fights and the only real gameplan you can muster is hitting him more than he hits you and hope your face doesn't shatter in the process.

I think the quick knockout was really the best result for everyone involved. Wandy gets to keep his job, and Jardine doesn't look like a punk. It's win/win!
