Rick Story got back to his winning ways with a lopsided victory over Brock Jardine at UFC on FX 4 this past Friday.

But even after his dominant decision, the 27-year-old Story left Atlantic City, N.J., wanting more.

"I hold myself to high standards," Story (14-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I'd rate it about (A-minus, B-plus). I don't want to fall in the category of one of those guys that just ride out wins."

While Story's workman-like victory over the UFC newcomer never really was in doubt, the Washington native said he would have preferred a finish.

"I didn't want to get too excited for the finish and then get clipped with something stupid," said Story, who snapped his two-fight losing streak and added a little job security with his Zuffa employer. "I just played it a little more conservative than I normally would."

It's understandable and acceptable to play a little safe when you're coming off losses. I'm sure the "Horror" Story will continue to give us entertaining fights now that he's got another W under his belt!!!
