Josh Neer’s Manager Effectively Illustrates the Problem With Josh Neer
Sounded a lot more like the manager was stating the problems with other fighters, not Josh's problem.
This in turn I think this illustrates what I said after the Tibau fight, which is in fact what I think is the problem with Josh Neer. I don't think Josh has an interest in becoming a complete MMA fighter, otherwise we would have seen some sort of improvement. I mean, if we can see an improvement in Kongo's ground game, a guy who has been in MMA as long as Neer should surely show some improvement with takedown defense or some strategy to counter a takedown.
With his manager's comments it underscores the problem that both Josh and his manager/trainer(s) seem to be in denial regarding the issue and seemingly want to deflect the issue on to other fighters. Unfortunately for them, the other fighters are the ones still in the UFC and the ones with "W" next to their name.
