Report: Mike Ricci to Fight Myles Jury at UFC 165
By FCF Staff
The September 21st, UFC 165 card in Toronto, Ontario will feature one of Canada’s rising fighters, as Mike Ricci will reportedly battle fellow TUF vet Myles Jury at the event.
The lightweight tilt was reported first by MMA Fighting.com.
Ricci (8-3) will be looking to build on the unanimous decision win he scored over lightweight Colin Fletcher at UFC 158 in March, after he fell by decision to Colton Smith in the TUF 16 Finale last December. The latter bout, however, took place at welterweight.
Jury (12-0) has impressed since he was eliminated by Al Iaquinta during TUF 15, via split decision, as the lightweight has won three straight bouts. Since competing on the show Jury has defeated Chris Sanders, Michael Johnson and Ramsey Nijem, who he knocked out at UFC on FOX 7 in April.
UFC 165 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.
