On a mission to capture his third world title in three different promotions, Benson Henderson made sure to win his last three fights. Blocking his path now is Myles Jury, whom he is set to welcome to the Bellator MMA cage on Sept. 27. Their thrilling showdown is part of Bellator 227, which will take place at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. Learn how they match up through the numbers below.
Active winning streakAfter suffering his second pair of back-to-back losses in his career, and his first pair as a Bellator fighter, Henderson has piled up three consecutive victories. He submitted Roger Huerta and decisioned longtime Bellator mainstays Saad Awad and Adam Piccolotti.
Jury hasn’t been as consistent lately, having dropped his last two fights, both in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He was knocked out by Chad Mendes before bowing out of the promotion with a decision loss to Andre Fili.
Longest winning streakJury may currently be on a two-fight skid, but the Power MMA representative did start his career with a 15-fight winning streak. That shows that he is capable of putting together a string of victories, and he could only be a win away from starting a new one. That successful 15-fight run included six UFC victories over the likes of Diego Sanchez, Takanori Gomi, Mike Ricci, Chris Saunders, Michael Johnson and Ramsey Nijem.
Henderson’s longest streak, though five shy of Jury’s 15, was ultimately more fruitful, as it included him capturing the interim World Extreme Cagefighting lightweight championship (versus Donald Cerrone), unifying the belts (versus Jamie Varner), and successfully defending the undisputed title once (versus Cerrone).
