"I haven't performed nearly to the top of my ability, and that's what this fight is about. That's what this journey outside the UFC is about -- finding myself and getting near the top of my potential. That's what I'm looking for right now. If I do that the sky's the limit."
-- The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum and seasoned Octagon veteran, Keith Jardine, tells Sherdog.com that his quest to achieve his full potential begins now. "The Dean of Mean" has dropped four straight fights and six of his last eight, which is a far cry from the fighter who flirted with possible contention about two years ago. Jardine was recently cut from the promotion and is now free to build his career (and possibly confidence) back up in smaller shows to prove that he does indeed belong locked inside a cage with the best of the business. He'll find out soon enough when he takes on one of the more talented 205-pound fighter not on the UFC roster, Trevor Prangley, under the Shark Fights banner in a non title bout on Sept. 11. Will the Greg Jackson-trained fighter have his hand raised for the first time in nearly two years or will Prangley serve up his fifth straight loss?
