Keith Jardine:

“I’ve been looking forward to fighting a wrestler for some time now. We’ll see where this fight is going to go. I think he’s going to try to stand with me honestly. He might force it to the ground, and if he’s really after those takedowns it’s going to end up on the ground eventually because he’s a two-time All-American. Maybe we’re going to see some of my grappling. It’s been a while since I’ve been underneath anybody for a good amount of time. I get a chance to test my skills now, and that’s the way I look at it, as a test. The guy throws very hard, very strong punches, but he’s a great wrestler and he hasn’t really used his wrestling yet. He might break it out for this fight, or he may not, but it’s an exciting test for me.”
