Diego Sanchez: ‘Reality is going to hit Myles Jury this weekend’
The welterweights aren’t the only guys looking to make noise at this weekend’s UFC 171 event.
A lightweight bout putting perennial contender Diego Sanchez up against an undefeated prospect in Myles Jury is also sure to deliver fireworks on Saturday.
In a recent interview with MMAjunkie.com, Sanchez explained his thoughts on his opponent’s string of success through his career thus far:
“I remember what it’s like, when I was 19-0, going on that awesome streak, feeling invincible. But it’s like you eventually run into reality. Even the best guys in the sport have losses on their record, and Myles Jury, I just feel like he’s coming up into that reality check with me.”
