Shark Fights Champ Trevor Prangley Talks Keith Jardine

He won't be putting his Shark Fights title on the line, but Trevor Prangley's reputation will be at stake against Keith Jardine on Saturday.

Prangley talks to MMA Weekly about his recent loss to Tim Kennedy and why this one will be different:

"I had a full camp for the first time in three fights. I'm back to where I want to be and where I should be for a fight of this size," he said.

"I realized that I need a six-week camp. I can't be doing these two-and-a-half, three-week notices, a weight cutting camp instead of a training camp."

He also says that he won't be bulking up for this fight and that he believes not having to cut weight will make up for the disadvantage in size. Then he goes on to talk about his opponent, Keith Jardine:

"I've always said I'm a 185er. To be honest with you, I prefer to not fight guys the caliber of Keith Jardine at 205. The fight was just too good of an opportunity to pass up. High risk yields high rewards."

...

"I don't care what the guy's record is. I've seen him fight; everybody has seen him fight. He's super dangerous. Just because the guy has a bad luck fight or gets caught a couple of times doesn't mean anything. It doesn't make you any less of a danger in the ring."

The Prangley-Jardine fight should be a fun match between a wrestler with decent striking and a striker with good take down defense. It's exactly the sort of fight between fighters who are no longer quite at the highest levels of the sport but still draw intense fan interest that justifies the existence of promotions like Shark Fights.
