A new welterweight bout has been added to the upcoming UFC on FX 3 card with veterans Mike Pyle and Josh Neer set to square off.
Pyle officially announced the match-up via Twitter on Friday.
A true veteran of the sport, Mike Pyle has faced some of the stiffest competition of any welterweight in the UFC or anywhere else, for that matter.
Currently holding a 5-3 record in the Octagon, Pyle most recently picked up a quick an impressive win over Ricardo Funch at UFC 142 in Brazil.
Much like his opponent, Neer has faced the best of the best throughout his career. He has recently hit a good stride since moving back to welterweight after a few attempts at 155 pounds proved to be unsuccessful after a brutal weight cut.
Neer has picked up wins over Keith Wisniewski and Duane “Bang” Ludwig most recently, and will try to add Pyle to his list of UFC victories come June.
There’s been no word on the placement of the Pyle vs. Neer fight on the UFC on FX 3 card, but with their recent performances it would almost seem a lock for the welterweights to end up on the main card.
