Keith Jardine suspended for hitting referee

According to a report by Ken Pishna of MMA Weekly, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) has suspended Keith Jardine indefinitely for a lack of “sportsmanship.” You'll see by the video below, as he was walking up to the the cage for his pre-fight inspection, Jardine shoved a referee.

According to Jardine’s manager, John Madrid, it was all a misunderstanding, as Jardine simply thought the ref was an unruly fan: “What happened, when Keith got through the crowd area, he was stopped and somebody was pulling on his shirt, out of reaction Keith pushed the guy to get him off and it happened to be (a Texas official).” (re-quote from MMA Weekly.)

Check out the video and tell me what you think...was this really such a big deal? Was it an honest mistake in light of the anxiety Jardine must have been feeling? Is the TDLR overreacting by suspending Jardine? What do you think?

Jardine's long walk to the cage, just before suffering his 5th straight loss to fellow UFC veteran, Trevor Prangley, at Saturday night’s Shark Fights 13.

This Video shows some more of the Worst Referee Stoppages and Mistakes in MMA - Volume Two

I think Andre Arlovski is great, but yeah, when he threw that cheap punch right after Herb Dean, it was pretty shocking. What was more shocking was that the fight was allowed to continue without stopping the action and taking a point away from AA!

Yves Lavigne Remains Unbiased: Josh Koscheck Statements Were False

Franchise Montreal

Yves Lavigne feels that he may have justifiable cause to take legal action against Le Journal de Montreal for false statements released during a recent “alleged” interview.

And who could blame him—particularly if the statements were indeed false?

What was said?

Well, if you don’t already know, then you’ll just have to visit MMA Crypt to find out (please note the disclaimer at the top in bold, red lettering) as the original article has now been pulled off the shelf.
