Josh Neer managed to survive an early onslaught from Duane Ludwig before locking in a deep guillotine choke that put Ludwig to sleep.
After the fight hit the mat, Ludwig tried to scramble and left his neck exposed to an extremely gritty veteran. Besides being rocked on the feet during an initial striking match, Neer also realized he had to keep busy:
“When I was on top of him I could feel blood trickle down my neck,” Neer said post-fight. “I didn’t know how bad the cut was above my eye, so I knew I had to finish him and finish quick. I saw an opening and got him.”
Since returning to the UFC in late 2001, Neer has gone 2-0, including a TKO against Keith Wisniewski last October. Expect the former FMS product to receive another tough test in the lightweight division later this year, while he hopes to build his UFC resume (again).
