Myles Jury spoke with MMAjunkie over the weekend following his win over Diego Sanchez at UFC 171. Check out the highlights:
On taking a fight off his wish list: "I always thought it would be cool to fight (Takanori) Gomi or Diego, but I just fought Diego, so I can cross that one off."
On his performance: "I felt like I performed really good tonight. I did what I trained to do, and yeah, I crossed a little hump there. Diego's a household name; anybody that knows MMA knows Diego. So I was happy about it, and what's next is up to my management and the UFC."
On Sanchez taunting him in the fight: "I was just thinking, ‘Keep doing what you're doing.' I was bloodying and beating him up pretty good. But sometimes when you get out there, it is tempting to get into a little bit of a brawl, so I was just making sure I was sticking to the game plan and keep piecing him up."
