Keith Jardine suspended for shoving an official at Shark Fights 13 (Video)

Jardine’s manager, John Madrid, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“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). There were no commission people or any security or anything to escort Keith out to the cage, and the TV guys are saying we gotta go. The crowd was really tight knit walking out, people reaching over the barriers grabbing at him and wanting to touch him,” Madrid recounted.

“He’s standing there … he’s being grabbed, he turns around in instinct and pushes the guy back, thinking its an over aggressive fan, but it happens to be (a Texas official). He’s very apologetic to that. (But) the only part that the commission saw was Keith pushing the commission guy.”
