UFC 171 The Official Date For Diego Sanchez, Myles Jury

Despite Diego Sanchez not knowing for sure, UFC officials have went ahead and announced a planned fight between him and Myles Jury for UFC 171.

The bout is added to the March 15 card from American Airlines Center in Dallas. Jon Jones defends his UFC light heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira in the main event.

Sanchez (24-6) has been calling out Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor and others recently, and he just signed a new eight-fight deal with the UFC. The former No. 1 contender is 13-6 in his UFC career.

Jury (13-0) is 4-0 with the promotion and an alum of The Ultimate Fighter, like Sanchez. He has defeated Ramsey Nijem and Mike Ricci this year.
