Myles Jury will face Mike Ricci at UFC 165

Myles “Fury” Jury (12-0) first got caught up with the UFC on “The Ultimate Fighter” season 13, where it was an injury that knocked him out of the competition. Jury then returned on “The Ultimate Fighter: LIVE” where he was eliminated in the first round by Al Iaquinta. Jury was given another chance at the “TUF LIVE Finale: Al Iaquinta vs. Michael Chiesa” when he faced Chris Saunders. Jury disposed of Saunders quickly as he won via submission in the very first round. Since then Jury has won two more consecutive fights, including a unanimous decision over Michael Johnson and a KO victory over Ramsey Nijem. Next, Jury will meet another “The Ultimate Fighter” alumni as Mike “The Martian” Ricci (8-3) will be standing across from Jury come September 21st. Ricci was featured on “The Ultimate fighter” season 16 where he earned his way to the finale, but fell short by losing a decision to Colton Smith. Ricci rebounded and earned his first UFC win as he dominated “TUF: Smashes” runner-up Colin Fletcher for three rounds. “Fury” has not shown any signs of slowing down as he is (3-0) inside the octagon, but Ricci has shown improvement since his stint on TUF 16 and will look to stop Jury in his tracks at UFC 165 in Toronto, Canada at the Air Canada Centre.
