 We caught up with Josh Neer prior to his return to action in Max Fights DM "Ballroom Brawl 4" against Matt Delanoit. Despite being excited about a return to the cage, Neer still feels he deserved another shot after he got cut following two decision losses in the UFC.


"I think I should have been given another fight. I had two back to back losses, but both were decisions, and I felt like I was the only one who actually 'fought' in both fights. I also feel that in both fights I was cheated out of 'Fight of the Night'. If either of those guys [Pellegrino and Tibau] actually fought, we could have made some money."
 


I did always look forward to seeing Josh fight in the UFC, you knew he'd bring it no matter who he was fighting.

Josh Neer has a wrestling background...but his takedown defense is horrendous.

I thought he looked improved in his most recent UFC fight. I can think of a number of guys I'd rather see go before Neer.

while i agree with this, the reality is, he needs to learn to defend a Dub...

Too many wrestlers in the LW division for him not to have any takedown defense whatsoever.

He got tossed around by Gleison Tibau, but at least he was getting up consistently. I'm keeping the faith.

i actually think he may have won that fight based on aggression and damage, but you can't have 9(!!!) successful double legs shot on you and win in the UFC.

i've heard a 100 times "MMA is Not...(fill in the style)". his wrestling may in fact be great, but his transition from striking to wrestling(or in this case TD defense) appears to be weak...

 I'll agree that you can't win fights in the UFC by getting put on your back consistently but Josh always tried to fight an exciting fight - win or lose - an entertainment is still a major factor in this sport as well as results.

Hopefully he'll string a few wins together and get back to a big show soon enough.

 They should have put him against more aggressive fighters like Lauzon, Miller, Stout, Fisher, etc.

 Wrong...do your fucking research.  Mac never took Josh down.  Josh was only outwrestled by Pellegrino and Gleison.

You're right...he got swept after a takedown on his part...my apologies.

 Yeah, the guy who landed all the strikes and got all the takedowns should have lost!

TapoutT1978 - can't wait to see him and Hermes fight on Friday.
Hermes vs. Neer would have been a good scrap! They should have set that up instead of putting them in squash matches... I understand why they didn't, but still.

Yup, would be much more exciting if they were fighting each other and not record padding/collecting an easy check.

if he only sprawled against tibau, he could have won that fight. neer is to blame for that loss.
