Odd.
Keith Jardine will get his first post-UFC challenge in promotional champion Trevor Prangley when they meet in a light heavyweight non-title bout at Shark Fights 13 on Sept. 11 in Lubbock, Texas, Sherdog.com has confirmed through both fighters’ camps.

"I'm looking forward to getting back in the cage after my last feeble performance," Prangley told Sherdog.com on Tuesday. "Keith is a super tough opponent and a real nice guy. It's good to see Shark Fights getting the higher caliber fighters and putting on consistently better shows."

The 37-year-old Prangley will look to bounce back from a first-round submission loss at the hands of Tim Kennedy at Strikeforce “Live” on June 16 in Los Angeles. The South African Olympic wrestling alternate, who resides in Couer D’Alene, Idaho, touts wins over Chael Sonnen, Jeremy Horn and Travis Lutter. Prangley earned the Texas promotion’s 205-pound title via first-submission over Marcus Sursa at Shark Fights 7 in November 2009.

Jardine was cut from the UFC following four straight defeats, including a majority decision loss to Matt Hamill at “The Ultimate Fighter 11” Finale on June 19 in Las Vegas. The 34-year-old Greg Jackson-trained fighter holds notable wins over former divisional champions Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin, but has suffered knockout losses in two of his last three bouts. Jardine had fought for the UFC since 2005, when he became a member of “The Ultimate Fighter” season 2 cast.

Sherdog.com has been told that the event will get a U.S. pay-per-view run from the upstart Texas promotion, which has banked impressive 10,000-plus attendance figures for its last couple of shows. Shark Fights is expected to make an announcement regarding the event, which will include additional marquee names, shortly.

Interesting fight. Not sure the last time Prangley fought at 205, but he got totally manhandled by Kennedy in his last fight. At the same time, Jardine fended off a pretty capable wrestler (for the most part) in Matt Hamill. Normally, I'd favor anyone with heavy hands over Jardine, but I've got "The Dean of Mean" in this one.

Damn, it just won't be right having someone else refer to Jardine's style as awkward and unorthodox.

 shark fights is one of the better run "indy" groups out there. They always make money just on the gate and the PPV will be gravy. They won't sell too many PPV's but it's still revenue.

They actually lost money on a few shows. Recently Shark Fights started having "free shows" and started charging for parking, got a percentage of concessions, incorporated new sponsors, etc... They report drawing 10,000+ at these events. Interesting new approach.

Good move for Jardine. Get a big win, and weigh your options.

Lose, and take what you can get.
