08:28 PM ET 04.01 | UFC lightweight and 'The Ultimate Fighter 13' finalist Ramsey Nijem is set to face Myles Jury at UFC on FOX 7 later this month. As for Nijem is concerned, his style makes the bout for Jury a particularly bad one. "Obviously he's undefeated for a reason," Nijem said. "He's a tough kid, lots of heart and a very talented fighter. But I feel like on the show he didn't perform quite as well, but that???s kind of a hard thing to say because the way 'The Ultimate Fighter' works. It either favors some people or gets in their head. It's hard to judge someone off their performance on 'The Ultimate Fighter...We're both kind of in the same spot in our career right now. We're both trying to make a name for ourselves in the lightweight division. We're like the same age. I think we're both 24 and undefeated in the lightweight division in the UFC. I feel like we're both kind of coming up, and this is going to be a big fight for both of us."
