UFC Quick Quote: Keith Jardine looks to 'let it rip' against Matt Hamill at TUF 11 Finale


"I tried to be too polished. I tried to be too planned. I was just thinking way too much. That's not me. That may be how other fighters perform at their best, but not me... It was growing pains for me, I feel like I'm a completely different fighter now then I was even two years ago when I was beating Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin. I need to get back to just going out there and letting loose, letting it rip... My training camp leading up to this fight was all about me and getting back to what I do best. I'm hungrier and more excited to be a UFC fighter than I ever have before."

Keith Jardine talked about his recent struggles in the Octagon and his efforts to return to top form on today's The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale media call. Having lost three consecutive fights and four of his last five, there isn't a better time than now to get back in the winning column and preserve his career. Even though he last fought just four months ago, "The Dean of Mean" claims that he has completely overhauled his approach to the sport and feels as though he'll be the best he's ever been come Saturday night. Anybody buying what Keith's selling? Let's get some predictions for the card's co-main event.
