When Myles Jury graduated from The Ultimate Fighter into the UFC he had big dreams.

Undefeated lightweight contender Myles “Fury” Jury is out to prove he is one of the best 155 pound fighters in the world next Saturday night as he takes on the streaking Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the co-main event of UFC 182.

Conventional wisdom has it that Myles Jury (15-0) will be in the biggest fight of his life Jan. 3 at UFC 182, against Donald Cerrone (25-6).

"On paper, this might...
