Is Keith Jardine looking past Brandon Vera?

In an interview with the British newspaper the Sun, Keith Jardine admits that he would like to get back in the cage with Wanderlei Silva.

I feel bad about it and I'm anxious to get back in there and show what I can do. There's no question about it - I want a rematch with him.

It's interesting that a fighter would mention someone else than his upcoming opponent. Usually, the best answer is something along the lines of I have to get through Brandon Vera first. The fact that he is still "feeling bad" about his loss to Silva is a good sign for Vera. Athletes who look past an opponent to their next one usually end up paying for that lack of focus. Right, Michigan?
