Neer back to UFC, wins on UFC Live 6 Facebook prelims


Edwards set the end in motion with a right hook that caught the charging Oliveira's temple. He quickly turned up the heat with punching combinations, but the Brazilian managed to escape – at first.

Measuring his strikes carefully, Edwards timed a head kick that put Oliveira on the canvas, and after his series of ultimately unnecessary punches from top position and back mount, referee Mario Yamasaki stepped in to end things at 2:44.

"I took a page from my last opponent and switched it up," Edwards said.

A vicious display of elbows in the clinch paved the way for Josh Neer's first UFC win in two years.

Neer, who was released from the promotion in the fall of 2009 following back-to-back losses, severely damaged fellow UFC vet Keith Wisniewski with short, sharp elbows as the two welterweights repeatedly collided.

"I felt like I was physically stronger than him all night, especially in the clinch," he said.

By the end of the second round, a gallery of cuts decorated Wisniewski's face, and a mask of red blood covered him as Neer cranked on a choke.

 The right time to stop would have been after the head kick where Yves is punching him from the side and rafael's hands are flailing up and down like a tap.  At that point he's completely out with his eyes open and yamasaki is trying to have a conversation with him.

That's just dumb, he puts on great fights and is more or less fighting a k-1 level refrigerator.
