Surging Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight prospect Myles Jury has been offered a fight against former division number one contender Nate Diaz, a 155-pound showdown he gladly accepts. But negotiating with Diaz, as Anthrax so eloquently puts it, is like clapping with one hand.

According to Fury, there hasn't been a peep from the 209.

Jury isn't a big enough name for his ego...

Meh. If I was Jury I'd take another month out, after Maynard decisions Camoes, Maynard is a very easy stylistical match for Jury. Maynards gotten slow, has a weak chin. Jury should be able to keep it on the feet and find the finish.

That's a really big name for Jury, a former title challenger and has an average fan base, even a loss to him doesn't set him back too far.

Also Khabib deserves someone a little higher ranked than Jury.
Khabib:
Tibau, RDA, Trujillo, Healy and Tavares.

Are bigger wins than

Sanchez, Ricci, Saunders, Johnson and Nijem.

To be fair, Khabib's biggest win is RDA. Jury has Sanchez (huge name value, bigger than Maynard), and Johnson (who beat Tibau). Trujillo, Healy, Tavares, Ricci, Saunders, and Nijem are all meaningless at the moment. With that said, Khabib does deserve someone higher ranked than Jury.

Nate acts like he's his brother. He's not, period. Yes he's beaten some good opponents, but he's not nick, never will be. People will flock to a Nick fight, Nate most people don't give a crap about.
