He’s fought Melvin Guillard, Eddie Alvarez, and both Diaz brothers. However, according to seasoned veteran Josh Neer, none of the aforementioned lot pack the power he faced last night at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller when he took on Duane Ludwig. Though “The Dentist” ultimately opted for a High-Elbow Guillotine Choke instead of Novocain to leave Ludwig in a numbed state, the hard-hitting kickboxer still landed a few solid strikes leaving Neer’s face bloodied and swollen before going out on his shield a few minutes into the first round.
Neer spoke about the fight in a post-victory interview with the UFC where he paid respect to Ludwig’s stand-up.
“I don’t know what he hit me with. He hit me with, in the beginning of the fight, with some good stuff. He’s definitely the hardest puncher I’ve ever fought.”
The 33-10-1 welterweight who is now on a six-fight winning streak including two inside the Octagon also discussed training with Cesar Gracie’s camp and more.
