Michael Johnson vs. Myles Jury added to UFC 155 | UFC News

A lightweight showdown between Michael Johnson (12-6 MMA, 4-2 UFC) and Myles Jury (10-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has been added to the UFC’s year-end card in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Johnson has won three straight fights, this after starting his UFC career by going 1-2. His latest win came over Danny Castillo at UFC on FX 5 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Johnson rebounded from a tough first round to earn a second-round KO victory over Castillo that night, and in doing so he pocketed a cool $40,000 bonus for “knockout of the night”.

Myles Jury made his UFC debut this June at the “TUF 15 Finale”, where he stopped Chris Saunders with a first-round guillotine choke. The win brought Jury’s pro record to an undefeated 10-0, with all 10 victories coming by way of stoppage within the first round.
