Myles Jury vs Diego Sanchez
We’re only a couple of months removed from Diego Sanchez’s memorable thriller against Gilbert Melendez at UFC 166 in Houston. While Sanchez lost the decision, he nearly pulled off a remarkable come-from-behind upset with a 3rd round knockdown of the former Strikeforce champion. Now he’s been booked for another Texas card against Myles Jury as part of UFC 171.
Sanchez (24-6) dropped back to lightweight following a run at welterweight post-title fight loss to B.J. Penn. He failed to make weight against Takanori Gomi at UFC on Fuel 8 but received a split decision victory in Japan. His loss vs. Melendez was his 7th FOTN award, with 4 of them coming in his last 5 fights. Sanchez remains one of the most exciting fighters the UFC has to offer.
Jury (13-0) now 4-0 in the UFC was recently promoted to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt under Professor Don Richard and Master Caique. Jury has beaten Chris Saunders, Michael Johnson, Ramsey Nijem, and Mike Ricci in the UFC, only the 40th fighter in history to be 4-0 in the UFC. The 25-year-old is definitely receiving a fairly significant (if not unexpected) step up in competition, but is highly touted as the new era of the sport.
UFC 171 is scheduled for March 15th in Dallas, with Jon Jones fighting Glover Teixeira for Jones’ light heavyweight title in the main event, Jury vs Sanchez will take place on the PPV main card.

“Fighting in the UFC is one of many goals I have and just the beginning to a long journey for me, my team and those around me,” Fury said. “I don’t really think about who else is on the card or any details like that. My focus is what’s at hand and the job I need to get done to move up in my career getting closer to my goals.
“You’re only as good as your next fight, so I live in the gym trying to get better and better and one day I will be the one as main event, until then everyone else on the card is just in my way.”

World, meet Myles Jury.
When the mainstream sports community takes notice of a highlight reel knockout – it’s got to be a good one. Such was the case with the aforementioned Jury and his one punch KO of The Ultimate Fighter 13 finalist Ramsey Nijem at UFC on FOX in April, which appeared on ESPN’s top 10 plays of the week.
“I heard it through the grapevine that it was on ESPN,” tells Jury. “I was like wow that’s crazy! I watch ESPN, so seeing yourself in that is surreal. I got to showcase my striking skills and get the KO finish. I also got to represent myself and my company, which was an all around great scenario for us.”
As Nijem charged forward with a swarm of fists, Jury dropped a brick wall in his opponent’s path with a big overhand right a minute into the second round.
“I was kind of throwing this overhand hook because I was seeing he was coming in with his head straight up and not really using too much head movement, and that’s a good punch of mine when someone isn’t really moving their head,” explains Jury, whose raging right nabbed him another win and some fame for a young career that truly deserves the attention. What’s an undefeated finishing machine have to do to get some recognition around here?
