UFC Fight Night 52 Card: Jury-Gomi In Lightweight Showdown

ufc fight night 52

Myles Jury asked for Nate Diaz. Instead, he’ll face Takanori Gomi in Japan at UFC Fight Night 52.

Jury and Gomi will meet September 20 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The card features a main event between Roy Nelson and Mark Hunt.

Jury (14-0) has won all five of his UFC bouts since appearing on The Ultimate Fighter, including a recent victory over former TUF winner Diego Sanchez. Recently, Jury confirmed that he had signed a contract to face Diaz, but Diaz declined to do the same as he continues to work to renegotiate his contract with the promotion.

Gomi (35-9) sports a 4-4 Octagon mark, having won three of his last four and earning a pair of “Fight of the Night” bonuses in the process.

Below is the current lineup:

Heavyweight: Roy Nelson vs. Mark Hunt

Female Bantamweight: Miesha Tate vs. Rin Nakai

Flyweight: Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Chris Cariaso

Lightweight: Myles Jury vs. Takanori Gomi
