UFC on FOX 7 results/photos: Myles Jury stays perfect, KOs Ramsey Nijem


SAN JOSE, Calif. – Myles Jury snapped Ramsey Nijem’s win streak and extended his own in the most violent way possible, earning a second-round KO.

After a grappling-heavy opening frame, the 24-year-old Jury took full advantage of Nijem’s awkward striking to land a concussive right hand.

The lightweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC on FOX 7 event at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. It aired on FX following additional prelims on Facebook and ahead of a main card on FOX.

Standout grappler Nijem’s awkwardness on his feet was repaid early by Jury, who countered with right hands. But his charge was really just a preamble to a takedown, which allowed him to work for superior position. Jury would deny him that and use a scramble to take his back.

Nijem was able to shuck Jury off his back, but wound up defending an armbar for a few tense moments. The two would trade dominant position for the rest of the round, underscoring a close grappling match.

Nijem caught a finger to the eye early in the second, and the crowd booed a kick thrown after he signaled his reaction to the errant blow. But that would be the least of Nijem’s problems. Upon restart, Nijem’s reckless advance prompted Jury to counter with an overhand right that send him lifeless to the mat.

Referee John McCarthy saved Nijem at the 1:02 mark of the second round.

“Everybody just likes to run forward and try to knock me out,” Jury said afterward. “I’ve got funky strikes and I can fight forward and back, left and right.”

Jury (12-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) remains unbeaten as a professional and now boasts three straight wins. Nijem (7-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) sees a three-fight win streak snapped.
