Josh Neer will fight Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 in Los Angeles on Oct. 24.

Josh Neer will replace an injured Sean Sherk to take on Gleison Tibau at UFC 104 on Oct. 24 in Los Angeles.

Sherdog first reported the news citing a source close to the matchup. PRO MMA ( has since confirmed the switch with Neer’s manager Mickey Dubberly.

Sean Sherk (33-4-1) has apparently incurred a shoulder injury during training that will sideline him for approximately four weeks. Sherk last fought at UFC 98 where he gave up a unanimous decision loss to Frankie Edgar.

Josh Neer (25-8-1) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 101 on Aug. 8. Neer is 2-2 in his last four fights. It could be a must-win for the 29-year-old “Dentist” from Des Moines.

American Top Team’s Gleison Tibau (19-6) is 4-3 in his last seven UFC bouts. His last Octagon appearance was a close split-decision loss to Melvin Guillard at the “TUF 9” Finale back in June.
