Myles Jury vs Rick Glenn 30 December 2017: UFC 219 Preview and Predictions

A big fight set to take place in Las Vegas at UFC 219 in the lightweight division as Myles Jury takes on Rick Glenn. Both these fighters are fighting out of the USA meaning that there should be some local rivalry in place.

Rick Glenn is a former champion in cage fighting which means that he is one of the toughest and resilient fighters in the UFC lightweight division. The American enters this fight with a record of 20 wins, 4 losses and 1 draw meaning that he is challenging to enter the elite bracket of fighters. Rick Glenn is yet to lose in 2017 and I am sure that he would like the end the year unbeaten and with a perfect record.

On the other side of the coin, Myles Jury will also want to win this game. This fighter has a record of 16 wins and 2 losses and he will know that he can do good things in the lightweight division. Jury is still new to this weight level but he has been fighting for well over a decade and after more than 12 months at this weight level, he should be feeling comfortable. A win here is important for the Arizona fighter since he needs to establish himself in this division.

With all that in mind, I think that Rick Glenn will win this fight. He has the better record and he seems to be more comfortable at this weight so it makes sense that he gets the win. Although the lines are not out yet, this bet should be paying well enough for us to wager on it.

 

Pick:
Rick Glenn
