Miletich Fighting Systems product Josh Neer will reportedly return to action against an undisclosed opponent at the yet-to-be-announced UFC Fight Night 14 on September 17th.
The news comes from our friends at MMA Junkie, who have learned from a source close to Neer that he has agreed to fight at the event, which will likely precede the debut of the upcoming eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter” on Spike TV.
Neer returned to the UFC in April after taking a hiatus to fight in smaller shows and earned an unanimous decision over longtime veteran and American Top Team mainstay Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 13. It was Neer’s first UFC win since he upset Joe Stevenson at Ultimate Fight Night 4 in April 2006.
While an opponent for Neer reportedly has not been finalized, MMA on Tap has learned that lightweight contender Nate Diaz is rumored as being considered as a potential foe across the cage for Neer at the event.
