Lightweight MMA fighter Josh “The Dentist” Neer (25-9-1) has been released from his UFC contract following a unanimous decision loss to Gleison Tibau (20-6) at UFC 104 on Oct. 24. Neer has lost his last three out of four fights, for a total of six out of ten times inside the Octagon.
Neer’s first UFC appearance was against Drew Fickett (36-13) at the very first Ultimate Fight Night back in August 2005. Fickett submitted Neer in the first round via rear-naked choke. However, Neer bounced back with wins over Melvin Guillard and Joe Stevenson in his next two UFC bouts.
