Neer is reaching the end of his career. McGee shouldn't have much problem with him.

I like Neer, better standup better ground game and will pressure Court.

I am going but I am already having mixed feelings about this card.
With female main event I really was expecting a stacked card I know they have 6 more fights to announce

With kos being one
And rumor or Davis vs malgahaes as another

I was just expecting more of a card.
I hope nelson knocks out meathead quick and faces carwin at this event

I like this fight, it should be a good one. I got to go with court on this one. I have a feeling this will be the hot bout

I was thinking the same. He wasn't a giant mw by any stretch but this might be a tough cut. When did he announce he was even dropping weight? I must have missed that one

McGee hands Neer his pink slip

Headline says Vegas, article says Cali. I hope 156 instead.
