Danzig vs Neer a possibility at Fight Night 17

There’s a solid lightweight match up looming between Mac Danzig (18-5-1) and Josh Neer (24-7-1) at UFC Fight Night 17 at a yet to be determined venue in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 7.

It’s a 155-pound tilt that will make the televised Spike TV broadcast on fight night, according to a recent message from Danzig on his MySpace.com page.

Danzig — season six welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) — is coming off a frustrating unanimous decision loss to Clay Guida at UFC Fight Night 15 back in September. “The Carpenter’s” relentless cardio and wrestling proved to be just to much for Danzig to overcome.

Prior to the loss he submitted Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Mark Bocek with a rear naked choke at UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2″ in April. He stopped Tommy Speer in similar fashion before that to earn the TUF crown nearly one year ago.

This will be the fourth fight for mixed martial arts veteran inside the Octagon. And it’s not getting any easier with opponents like “The Dentist.”

Neer is also looking to rebound from a loss at UFC Fight Night 15 — he dropped a tight split decision to Nate Diaz in a fight that was awarded with “Fight of the Night.”

A five-year veteran of the sport, Neer is no slouch on the ground or on his feet —- 10 of his wins have come via submission, with 10 more coming via (technical) knockout. After posting a 2-3 record in the UFC, Neer won six of seven fights outside the promotion before returning to the Octagon and defeating Din Thomas by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 13.

In addition to Thomas, Neer holds wins over UFC veterans Joe Stevenson, Melvin Guillard and Forrest Petz.
This would be a fun fight to watch. I love Danzig, but I just believe Neer is too tough for Mac. I would think Neer wins.

Danzig Vs Neer At February 7 Ufc Fight Night

The two lightweights are expected to be a featured bout on the card that will also feature "Ultimate Fighter" season 7 winner Amir Sadollah against Nick Catone.

The event is expected to originate from the Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas on Feb. 7, although the UFC has still made no official announcement about the event, as of yet.
that should be a good fight
I think Neer takes it though

I've been a huge fan of his since he got cut by Guillard and then caught him in that triangle

Of course Melvin Guillard might be my least favorite fighter of all time but still

Its been confirmed.

Edit: I'm taking Neer. He will come in hungry. He's better than he has shown.

Josh Neer vs Danzig interesting match up.

I think Neer will take this. Honestly Danzig is IMO the same level fighter as Neer.

Although I think Danzig has been impressive I havent seen anything from him to prove he can beat someone like Neer, not saying Danzig isnt good enough just that he as yet to prove it.
