The UFC on FX 3 fight card continues to materialize, as a welterweight matchup between veterans Mike Pyle and Josh Neer has reportedly been added to the event.
Pyle revealed the news via Twitter.
It is official people .. I am fighting josh neer june 8 ..
The 36-year-old Pyle (22-8-1) recently rebounded from a quick TKO loss to young gun Rory MacDonald by quickly TKOing Ricardo Funch. A veteran training out of the Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas, Pyle sports a 5-3 record in the UFC. He most recently appeared in action at UFC 142 this past January.
Though eight years Pyle’s junior, Neer (33-10-1) has several more professional fights to his credit, having stayed very busy over his nine-year career. The Dentist has fought his way back in the UFC after spending a couple of years on the smaller circuit and has beaten Keith Wisniewski and Duane Ludwig since returning. Neer also graced the octagon most recently in January, submitting Ludwig with a guillotine.
UFC on FX 3 will likely take place on June 8 at a currently unannounced location.
