Josh Neer, Mike Pyle Bring Plenty Of Experience To Table Tonight

Josh Neer and Mike Pyle have competed against many of the top names in the history of MMA. This evening, at UFC on FX: Johnson vs. McCall, the two welterweights will square off against one another in the co-main event.

Neer has won six consecutive fights, including two in a row since re-joining the UFC roster. Pyle, meanwhile, is seeking a second straight victory inside the Octagon and fifth in his last six bouts.

“Mike’s a veteran,” said Neer, in a recent pre-fight interview with the UFC. “I think he’s pretty good at everything, but that’s what I am, so I think it’s going to be a good fight. I feel like my advantage is definitely on the feet.”

Neer (33-10-1) has scored 17 career knockout victories and owns 12 wins by submission. Pyle (22-8-1) owns 16 career submission triumphs and three via KO.

“He seems a little bit uncomfortable on the feet,” Neer said. “He’s good on the ground, decent on the feet, but I definitely feel like I have the striking advantage.”
