should be a good fight, two tough, well rounded fighters. I like Danzig by decision because his jiu jitsu is a little better.

I hope Neer destroys him and Danzig fades away.

One of the most evenly matched fights in a while. Both fighters have very similar strengths and weaknesses. I'll give the slightest of an edge to Neer as he has only lost to top guys (aside from Mark Miller) and he's beaten a few top guys as well like Joe Stevenson and Din Thomas. I've yet to see Danzig beat anyone I would consider near the top tier of fighters. Close fight but I think Neer is just slightly better.

I'm excited for this fight, they're two of my favorite LW fighters, I think Neer has the edge in this fight and will probably take a UD.

Personally I don't really care for or dislike either.....skill wise I love em both! I actually give Danzig a slight edge in this fight and pick him for a UD. Likely to be hot bout and fight of the night!!!

I agree that this is definetly looking like it could be the Hot bout. Two very evenly matched fighters, which often makes for solid, competitive fights. I'm leaning to Neer by UD due to better wrestling and probaly a strength advantage, and I don't think Danzig will threaten Neer a whole lot off of his back, no more than Nate did at least.

You can tell by the responses already that this will either be the hot bout or real close to it.....even when people pick their choices most are still saying it's going to be a good and close one....good for the AV bets too!!!

This should be a good fight. I feel Danzig should win this by sub or UD. But you never known Neer is a very tough fighter and has a style that some people have a hard time dealing with.

really? i dont agree with you, but its cool. I think Josh has faced tougher competition and should win by dec in my opinion.

1 thing is for sure, the UFC isnt spoon-feeding Mac any1 easy so far! (Mark Bocek and Clay Guida)
