I'd rather see guys like Johnson stay busy with lesser competition than sit forever to fight a name guy.



Yeah, but if he loses, then that sets him back further from getting top competition.

Or it shows that he doesn't belong up there.

Kind of a strange matchup. Johnson deserves a bigger name imo and Jury should be a guy that they bring up slowly.



Meh, Jury got beat on the show and showed his MMA ceiling. If he is as talented as some think he is he shouldnt have a problem with this fight but seeing as how nothing really shines about Jury he probably gets beat up and all of the sudden is in a pink slip fight next on a Fuel TV card. This is a perfect fight to see if he is legit, he has an unblemished record that really isn't undefeated and Johnson is still just a gatekeeper type fighter, not very high in the LW rankings himself.

Myles Jury has been a professional MMA fighter longer than Johnson. He was already well-rounded before Johnson could do anything other than take someone down. He's a better kickboxer, was an All-State Wrestler in high school, and will have earned his black belt in BJJ before this fight even takes place. I love every comment in this thread if the moneyline reflects the opinion here.
