In his first fight since being released by the UFC in June, veteran Keith Jardine is set to face Shark Fights light heavyweight champ Trevor Prangley in a 205-pound non-title bout at Shark Fights’ September 11 event in Lubbock, Texas, Sherdog reports.
Jardine (15-8-1) dropped a majority decision to Matt Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale last month for his fourth-straight loss and has since vowed that he’s “more motivated than ever” to return to the top.
Prangley (22-6-1) was submitted by middleweight contender Tim Kennedy in Strikeforce in June after going 5-0-1 in his previous six fights.
No additional matchups have been announced for the event, which will air live on pay-per-view.
