Dustin Neace Wiki Update Wiki

Dustin Neace is a BJJ practitioner that currently trains out of Team Alpha Male. His is best known for his stint on The Ultimate Fighter 14. He began fighting as an amateur in 2005 and has amassed 49 pro and amateur fights since then. The majority of his fights have come on the regional midwest circuit with a large number of fights for Legends of Fighting Championship based out of Indianapolis. Nineteen of his wins have come by way of submission.

He appeared on TUF 14 in the featherweight division. He beat Josh Clopton to earn a spot in the house. While there, he revealed that he had three testicles. He lost his first round matchup to Akira Corassani in a controversial decision. Neace had applied a heel hook and it appeared that Coraassani had tapped but the fight was never stopped. Neace released the submission since he thought that his opponent tapped out.

Neace would make his Bellator debut against Marlon Sandro at Bellator 81 but would be submitted in the first round.
