Fresh off a devastating knockout of "The Ultimate Fighter 13" finalist Ramsey Nijem at this past weekend's UFC on FOX 7 event, Myles Jury is setting his sets high for his next fight.

At first this sort of seemed to me like asking for an easy win...

But then I thought about it, and really Gomi would be on a 3-fight win streak against good competition if he hadn't been robbed against Diego. Its an interesting stylistic match-up, and Gomi still has great power.

Why don't any of the new guys call out other people who are in their prime as well? Call out Melendez and see what happens.

I guess they feel like having a big name or legend on their record would get their name out there more. I agree with you though, why not call out someone like Gil. He's elite, he's in his prime and a win over Gil would do more for your career at this point than a win over Gomi.

Maybe Gomi will become the LW Cro Cop

Why would you call out Gomi? That seems like a waste of a call out.

Maybe because Jury is an up and coming fighter. Besides the UFC wouldn't match Jury up with Melendez at this point.

This

Why call out someone who is at the top of the division if you are no where near that? At least Gomi is within the same tier/ranking in the division
