UFC on FX 1 Results: Josh Neer puts Bang Ludwig to Sleep

Posted on by Al Yu

Duane Ludwig and Josh NeerAfter a year absence from the UFC, Josh Neer put a string of wins together and earned another shot in the Octagon.  The “Dentist” defeated Keith Wisniewski in his return at UFC on Versus 6.

Josh Neer, at UFC on FX 1 on Friday night, continued his move up the welterweight ladder with a victory over Duane “Bang” Ludwig, extending his winning streak to six fights.

Owner of the fastest knockout in UFC history, Duane Ludwig is known for his technical striking and he put it on display.  Ludwig displayed improved wrestling as he defended against his opponent.  Halfway through the round Neer secured a single leg takedown.  As Ludwig tried to transition back to his knees, Neer sunk in a guillotine that rendered him unresponsive.

“It was a good win,” commented the Des Moines, Iowa, fighter.  “I wanted to stand and trade more but he was getting the better of me.  I wanted to take it to the ground and try and finish him.”

Ludwig stunned the aggressive Neer on a few occasions, using good footwork and counter-punching.  Despite the hard shots, Neer kept moving forward.

“That’s one of my biggest strengths,” Neer said regarding his chin.  “I don’t like to lose and I will put myself through whatever I put myself through to come out with the win.”

“I don’t care, give me whoever.  I just want to fight someone who wants to fight.”

    Josh Neer is one tough dude. That shot to the liver would have finished most guys but he found a way to battle through it and came out on top. Love watching that guy fight.
