Neer vs. Wisniewski Wiki Update Wiki

The second bout of UFC on Versus 6 featured two fighters making their return to the UFC, when Josh "The Dentist" Neer took on Keith "The Polish Connection" Wisniewski in the welterweight division.

Both fighters came out and immediately engaged. They clinched against the fence, broke free, and Neer landed a right hand and a low kick. Neer tried twice to hold Wisniewski in the thai clinch but wasn't effective in the clinch in the early going. Wisniewski landed a good knee. In a good exchange both fighters connected with big punches. A body shot from Wisniewski and another late in the round that appeared to hurt Neer. A small cut was opened up on Wisniewski's face after some short elbows. A competitive first round.

The pair went right back to it in round two with Neer looking to have the edge with jabs and elbows in the clinch. Wisniewski initiated the clinch multiple times but couldn't get a takedown and was getting carved up by elbows. Wisniewski slipped in a solid elbow but he was losing the battle of dirty boxing. Wisniewski's face was covered in blood from the strikes, and the fight was paused after Neer's mouthpiece was knocked out and fell between a crack in the apron of the Octagon. After an unusual break to retrieve the mouthpiece from officials, Neer went right back to his brutal elbow attack. Wisniewski landed some effective knees but was losing the round by any reasonable measure. Neer attacked for a guillotine choke at the end of the second round and blood streamed Wisniewski's face from the buildup of pressure. A brutal, violent fight.

While the damage to Wisniewski's face did not appear overwhelming by UFC standards, the doctor called off the fight after the second round, delivering the victory to Josh Neer via TKO. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Neer commented, "I work on my elbows all the time, give it up to Keith, this guy's a warrior and I respect Keith a lot... it was getting hard to do anything in there, it was so bloody."
