"The Dean of Mean" will get another shot at the big show.

The slot becomes available when MIke Kyle broke his right hand in training and was forced to withdraw from the contest.

sorry but I'm just not sold on Mousasi yet. Guy gets a lot of hype but never seen him feet a big name.Of course, that doesnt mean he shouldnt walk through Jardine.

Yeah, nothing to lose for Jardine. He has good takedown defense, but it's hard to see any outcome other than another KO loss for Keith. If he somehow manages to win, the UG will be flooded with posts saying Mousasi is too small for 205.

Jardine has proven he can hang with the best guys in the division when he is on and with his recent record he really has nothing to lose. Mousasi should take this one pretty easily but it is kind of similar to his match against Mo in that he is risking a lot if he loses but won't gain much by winning against a (currently) unranked guy.

I think Jardine will do better than expected, Mousasi is over rated IMO.
