Myles Jury recently spoke about making it to the UFC and much more. Here are the highlights…
On Living His Dream: "The biggest dream I've been working for about 10 years ago is getting that first UFC fight and first UFC win. Now that I got that, I feel like I'm a step forward and so much closer to my dreams. My dreams are to stay in the UFC and keep winning, and my ultimate dream is to one day be a world champion. That's what I set out (to do) when I was young. I'm making the right steps I need to make to get to that point."
On Having Patience: "One thing I'm learning in my career is being patient is really key," Jury said. "There's just certain things you can't control in your MMA career. You just have to be patient that your time will come and keep putting in that work. There's no substitute for hard work."
On Being on the Ultimate Fighter: "It was crazy to wrap your mind around this whole situation," he said. "I think (the strict rules of the show) make (you) a better fighter, even a better person when you don't have a TV or any of that. Even though it sucks going through it, you really appreciate those things when you get out. I feel so much stronger for going through all that."
On Taking Some Time Off: "Pretty much right now I'm going to take about two weeks off and relax, and not even think about fighting as much as I can," he said. "I'm back in San Diego enjoying the sunshine and the water. I'm trying to decompress, take it all in and really enjoy this process. Just take every day slowly and enjoy it. This is my dream that I'm getting to do."
