When browsing Keith Jardine‘s most recent five assignments (Thiago Silva, Wanderlei Silva, Brandon Vera, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Chuck Liddell), it’s safe to say the Greg Jackson product is not one to turn down a challenge. So when he was offered a fight at UFC 110 in Australia against The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner Ryan Bader, there was no way he would decline.
But first, who’s Ryan Bader?
“I didn’t even know who Ryan Bader was when he was first mentioned to me by the UFC,” Jardine said. “It took me a little while to realize who they wanted me to fight. All I heard was that they wanted me to appear in Australia and that was all I needed to hear. That was all my incentive right there. It didn’t matter who was in the other corner facing me.”
