A pair of UFC veterans will collide in the main event of Victory FC this month for the middleweight title, as Josh Neer takes on Anthony Smith.
Set for January 29, the event will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.
Neer steps in for Elvis Mutapcic, who will fight this weekend in the UFC against Francimar Barroso.
“Everyone at Victory FC is thrilled that Elvis Mutapcic has achieved his dream of signing with the UFC. We wish him the best of luck this Sunday. We want Victory FC to be known for developing athletes,” Victory FC president Ryan Stoddard said. “Now, in the tradition of fine mixed martial artists everywhere, Josh Neer has stepped up to headline VFC 47 and give fight fans a rematch they’ve been waiting three years to see.”
Neer scored a 2013 submission victory over Smith under the Victory FC banner.
The event begins at 10 p.m. ET.
