Keith Jardine is “Semi-Retired” and Working out Health Issues [Video]
by Shawn M. Smith on January 31, 2013

In a recent interview with MMA Fight Corner, former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Keith Jardine stated that he’s “on the shelf” with regards to his fighting career. Read: he’s retired…ish.

“A lot of people have been pushing me to retire, I’ve been a shell of myself these last couple years. I’ve been saying I’m definitely on the shelf, I’m semi-retired, I’m definitely on the shelf right now,” Keith said. “I’ve just been looking at my health and my fitness. I’ve been doing this Bulletproof stuff,” Jardine said of learning now about properly caring for his body. “My nutrition was just backwards, my working out was backwards, I was a zombie walking around for the last two years.

“So that’s my approach right now is I’m trying to get myself healthy. And then once I feel like I’m ready to go out and to perform at a level I want to and shock the world, I want to do it. I got to do it again. I don’t care if I win or lose, but I just want to go out there and perform and be Keith Jardine which I haven’t been in the last couple of years. When I dropped to middleweight it was a disaster, it was stupid. It made everything worse. It magnified all of my health issues that I was dealing with.”
