UFC Terminates Keith Jardine

The UFC has terminated Keith Jardine after years of faithful service, the result of a string of consecutive losses including a recent majority decision loss to Matt Hamill at the TUF 11 Finale.  A veteran of TUF 2 and most known for his unorthodox striking style and scary rapist-looking face, Jardine was long a staple in the Octagon, scoring notable victories over Forrest Griffin and Chuck Liddell and getting destroyed by everyone from Wanderlei Silva to Thiago Silva to Houston Alexander.  "I liked Keith - he was a good kid," said Head UFC Executioner Dana White.  "But we just couldn't justify paying him when all he did was look mean and then go unconscious."  According to White, Jardine was taken out behind a utility shed in the Zuffa Complex parking lot and shot.  Said White, "I hated doing it.  But believe me, I was gentle."
