UFC on FOX 17: The “Jury” Is in for Oliveira
Myles Jury will be dropping to featherweight and will be welcomed to the division by Charles Oliveira at “UFC on FOX 17” on December 19, 2015. Oliveira’s most recent fight with Max Holloway was cut short when the Brazilian suffered a minor neck injury that put a stop to the fight when he dropped to the canvas in pain. He will be looking to pick up where he left off with his four fight win streak and start a new one at the expense of Jury.
Jury suffered the first loss of his career in January 2015 to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and chose to make the switch to featherweight recently. Before his loss to “Cowboy”, Jury put together an impressive fifteen fight win streak.
New women’s strawweight signee Karolina Kowalkiewicz will be making her debut at “UFC on FOX 17” in Orlando. Kowalkiewicz is undefeated with her most recent win coming by way of unanimous decision in KSW and she will be put to the test when she meets Randa Markos.
