Lightweight ‘TUF’ Veterans Michael Johnson, Myles Jury Clash Dec. 29 at UFC 155
A lightweight confrontation between “Ultimate Fighter” alumni
and Myles Jury
has been added to the UFC 155 dance card, promotion officials
UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in
Las Vegas and will be headlined by a heavyweight title rematch
between reigning champion Junior dos
Santos and ex-titlist Cain
Velasquez. The evening’s main draw airs live on pay-per-view,

Known as “The Menace,” Johnson fought his way to the finals of “TUF
12” before dropping a unanimous decision to Jonathan
Brookins at the live finale nearly two years ago. Though
Johnson would split his next two bouts, the 26-year-old currently
rides a three-fight winning streak heading into his showdown with
Jury. Johnson kicked off 2012 by outpointing veteran Shane
Roller and then did the same to “TUF 13” winner Tony
Ferguson on May 5. Most recently, the lightweight punched out
Team Alpha Male standout Danny
Castillo on Oct. 5, surviving a knockdown in round one before
turning the tables on “Last Call” in the second frame.
Jury, 24, still holds a perfect professional record, despite
falling in an exhibition bout to cast mate Al Iaquinta
during his time on “TUF 15.” Jury nevertheless performed well in
the season finale, submitting Chris
Saunders with a guillotine choke in just 4:03 at the June 1
event. Jury, who has fought the majority of his seven-year career
under the King of the Cage banner, has finished all 10 of his
career victims by either knockout or submission.
