“The Dentist” appears destined to be in his office on June 8 with only a single appointment on his calendar – a visit from submission-savvy veteran Mike Pyle.
According to an official announcement, Josh Neer will mix it up with Pyle at UFC on FX 3 as part of a card headlined by a bout between flyweights Demetrious Johnson-Ian McCall. No location is in place for the show yet, as the organization’s Hometown Throwdown promotion is allowing fans to vote on where the event will take place.
Neer is currently on a six-fight winning streak including five inside the first frame of action and pair of victories inside the Octagon since re-joining the UFC last Fall. The 29-year old is 33-10-1 in his career including an impressive 20 finishes (eighteen TKOs/eleven submissions) including one in January against Duane Ludwig who he choked out cold.
Pyle shares Neer’s propensity for putting opponents away with fifteen submissions in 22 total victories. The Xtreme Couture representative is coming off success in four of his last five fights with notable performances against John Hathaway, Ricardo Almeida, and most recently Ricardo Funch.
