Keith Jardine to Face Brandon Vera

(“Truth” serum?)

A source tells Cage Potato that Keith Jardine will be the next opponent for Brandon Vera following his decision win over Reese Andy this past Saturday. The match seems to indicate that Vera’s stay in the light heavyweight division may be longer than he might have liked.

Jardine needs a victory after his TKO loss to Wanderlei Silva at UFC 84, and going against the once-highly touted heavyweight prospect Vera gives him a golden opportunity to get back in the running for the UFC’s light heavyweight title.

There’s no word yet on exactly when the fight will take place, but we’ll bring you more as the story develops.

Vera is the shit and now that he is light heavtweight i am confident that jardine will have no chance on the feet

wel all i can say is, jardine is a walk in the park... vera has a solid chin and jardine's slow punches can't hurt him..

I hope vera kicks jardines head into the stands! Even tho i'm not a vera fan.

Vera can win this if he doesn't fight "not to lose". I can see this being a boring fight though. Not as boring as Vera vs Machida would be though. Two people who would try to counter punch and just circle each other for five minutes at a time.

@ kg and tusker

how long have you guys been watching the ufc? brandon vera is boring?? just because his last couple of fights have been "boring" doesn't mean that the guy is a boring fighter... go and watch his highlight reel and then come back and tell me how "boring" he is. For all of you that have never put on a pair of gloves and entered the ring/octagon to fight and then come here and bash guys that train night and day as hard as they can to fight I think its ridiculous.
But hey, everyone is allowed an opinion; and that's your opinion no matter how ignorant it is.

Did anyone watch Vera's first fights when he came into the UFC, he was actually an exciting fighter to watch because he capitalized on other peoples mistakes and made then pay for it dearly. Yes the last 2 fights haven't been the greatest. Dan Fagliotta messed up and stopped the fight early on him vs Werdum. And he got tired early because of cutting 20 lbs in nearly a months time which is a lot of weight to lose in that short time. Its gonna be a tough fight for the 2, but I see Vera doing better than Jardine.

I hate both these guys... I hate Vera more though
Irvin's Right Eye- July 22, 2008 at 7:58 pm
Silva will destroy him but you have to give the shot to the number 1 contender (well number two since number one has a broken hand) even if you are sure they will be out before the second round.

At least Cote proved he can take a punch with McFedries. McFedries has some serious power although I think Silva's knees will be Cotes destruction.

I am still shocked that after witnessing the beating Irvin took the other night, they want to promote Anderson Silva vs Patrick Cote? If Irvin went down as bad as he did the other night, what chance does Cote have? Patrick Cote will definitely need to earn his nickname as "The Predator" and use some laser cannons and the wrist mounted self-destruction bomb to defeat Silva

last summer, Vera, Joe Stevenson, Gray Maynard, and Kendall Grove dropped by my gym for an afternoon training session. They were all cool and down-to-earth (like most of the fighters i've met). on tv, vera whines and comes off as self-centered. but he was pretty cool that day. it's sometimes hard to tell what a person's like when the cameras aren't rolling.

brandon vera is annoying because he loves himself (masturbates in front of mirror), complains a lot, and is really really overrated
Mark's Right- July 22, 2008 at 6:31 pm

the Real Keith Jardine

or shall i say Keith "Techno Viking" Jardine!

Cote's nicknamed "Predator" because he remains mostly invisible and in the background. Then when he does show himself everyone tries to shoot him.

I hope Jardine absolutely shitkicks Vera.
Geriatric Peon- July 22, 2008 at 4:28 pm
Well yea he will get destroyed by Silva and he is extremely one dimensional which is why the Almeida fight sucked I won't argue that. I just wouldn't lump him in the always boring like Vera has become.
tusker- July 22, 2008 at 3:54 pm
Cote's got heavy hands, true. but that's about it. he doesn't compare to any of the top-level strikers in MMA.
Geriatric Peon- July 22, 2008 at 3:48 pm
OK the Almeida fight sucked because of their fear of engaging each other cause of the opposing styles but Cote is not a boring fighter. Did you watch his fights with Drew McFedries or Kendall Grove?
tusker- July 22, 2008 at 3:34 pm
Jardine will mash Vera.

As for being the most boring & lame fighter in the UFC, i think it's a toss-up between Vera and Cote. you really should have to earn your the hell does Cote get away with being called The Predator? the only thing more painful than watching his fights is listening to Goldberg & Rogan try to make them seem interesting.

MMA Junkie is saying it'll be at UFC 89 in England...

Liddel and Jardine should be completely cornering the market for cruiser bikes, biker gear etc. They look like they would completely be at home brawling in a shit whole bar.
Plain old Kevin- July 22, 2008 at 2:55 pm
I would like to see Jardine destroy Vera. I agree that Vera is boring.

Why is Jardine not in any Harley commercials?!
Anonymous- July 22, 2008 at 2:54 pm
wicked. Man Keith Jardine is the bomb. What was the deal with all those rumours of him having a drug addiciton and stuff. I heard something about footage of him losing it at one of the UFC events?
KG- July 22, 2008 at 2:47 pm
This is awesome... because I know Jardine will destroy Brandon Vera.. I HATE HIM.... he is the most boring and lame fighter in the entire UFC roster..
