Benson Henderson vs. Myles Jury Results
After a close first round, an uneventful second, and another competitive round to finish the contest, Henderson vs. Jury left the cage-side judges in an unenviable position.
At the end of the bout, both men threw their hands up in victory, evidently feeling they’d done enough to earn the win. Yet in the end, it was the former UFC champion Benson Henderson who earned the nod. He’ll leave Dublin with a new unanimous decision victory on his record.
With this win, Henderson is now on an impressive four-fight win-streak. This win over Jury was preceded by a pair of decision victories over Adam Piccolotti and Saad Awad, and a submission defeat of fellow UFC veteran Roger Huerta. This streak, in turn, was preceded by a pair of decision losses to Bellator mainstays Patricky Freire and Michael Chandler.
Jury, meanwhile, comes up short in his Bellator debut. He’s now on a three-fight skid, having also lost to Andre Fili and Chad Mendes in his two most recent UFC bouts.
