Myles Jury:

“Obviously I didn’t want to stand in the pocket too long and trade because that’s Diego’s strength, he’s known for it. I wasn’t afraid of his punches at all. I just wanted to fight smart. My coaches tell me I’m the best in the world all the time but I expect that from them. I know I can beat anyone but with each win over better and better guys I start to believe in myself more and more. I’m young and I’m better each time I step into that Octagon. I’m ready for whatever the UFC has next.” 

Diego Sanchez:

“It really was just an off night. I don’t want to make any excuses because I’m not that guy. I must’ve eaten something bad because I got really sick late yesterday. It really hurt my rehydration process and I couldn’t keep fluids down. Jury fought a great fight but I know I could’ve given a better showing for the fans and myself. Hats off to him.”

    Looking forward to this fight. If Miles comes out like i know he can, he can win this fight. “I” feel he needs to take some chances, especially in the grappling department. There is no doubt in my mind that Miles can sub him and is the superior grappler. Deigos chin and conditioning (tempo) make him extremely dangerous for anyone in his division (even the champ!)

      Looks like he did too.

      I was looking forward too, I don’t know a lot about Jury, but I was hoping he would kick butt. And honestly after watching think he is a joke. he only way he could beat the champ is to run even more than he did tonight. Literally landed like 3 great punches and ran the whole time while diego pushed the pace and landed some shots. If judges gave it to sanchez I wouldn’t of been surprised because really Jury did very little.

  • joe

    Wow jury just ran away lol, then has the nerve to say gave sanchez a beating is absurd. I dislike sanchez personally. But I felt bad for him tonight, he went in there to fight and this jury kid (who I was hoping would whoop diegos ass) just ran a lot. The fight could of gone eitherway..no1 really destroyed anyone. Basically Jury landed maybe 3 really good shots and one opened diego up wit 1, but other than that diego charged threw combos and tried to engage while jury ran around.

    You’re an idiot. Jury is going to move up the ladder quick boys I guarantee it.

  • Scott O’Dell

    Anyone who has gone 13.0 at this point should deserve some respect. Whether it’s by Ko or Dec. It doesn’t really matter as long as you win the fight.
