Sanchez (24-6) has won numerous ‘Fight Of The Night’
may go down as one of the greatest of all-time. The two
lightweights slugged it out over the course of 15 minutes leaving
the crowd at UFC 166 in Houston on their feet and applauding the
fighters for their shared performance.
Still, the end result of the fight was a loss for Sanchez so he
will try to get back on track when he fights at UFC 171 against a
top up-and-coming prospect looking to make his name by beating an
Myles Jury (13-0) will get the biggest opportunity of his young
career taking on Sanchez in Dallas. Jury, who was just recently
awarded his black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, has been one of the
most pleasant surprises from the past few seasons of The Ultimate
Jury actually appeared on the show twice — the first time ended
when he blew out his knee early in the season and had to exit —
but despite not winning The Ultimate Fighter Live, he’s come
storming out of the gates since then with three straight wins.
Now the undefeated fighter from California will look to add
Sanchez’s name to his growing resume as he tries to become a player
in the lightweight contender’s race in 2014.
