Diego Sanchez is staying in Texas for his next fight, and it will be against undefeated TUF 15 Lightweight Myles Jury.

We're only a couple of months removed from Diego Sanchez's memorable thriller against Gilbert Melendez at UFC 166 in Houston. While Sanchez lost the decision, he nearly pulled off a remarkable come-from-behind upset with a 3rd round knockdown of the former Strikeforce champion. Now he's been booked for another Texas card against Myles Jury as part of UFC 171:

I'm actually going to stay on board the Jury hype train. I think he takes this.

Same here. I think this looks like Sanchez/Hathaway (with a less bloated Diego).

Didn't see this fight coming.
I like it though. Definitely will be on the main card. I don't know if Myles will be able to handle the style of Diego, he's never really faced anyone super aggressive, Ill take Diego UD as of right now

Jury can be painfully boring. Sanchez should help with that.

Myles should be able to capitalize on tons of counter opportunities this fight.

Very close matchup. If Jury avoids Sanchez' brutality, he can take this in 15.

Disappointing!

Was expecting Connor vs Diego, once Connor was healthy enough.
