Josh Neer (24-6-1 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner Nate Diaz (9-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) will likely meet at UFC Fight Night 14 in September.

A source close to one of the fighters told MMAjunkie.com about the lightweight fight and said bout agreements are expected to be signed shortly. The fight has been rumored for the better part of a month.

UFC Fight Night 14, which airs on Spike TV, takes place Sept. 17 and serves as a lead-in for the eighth season of "The Ultimate Fighter."

Interesting matchup. I would say that they are somewhat even on the feet, Neer has the wrestling advantage, and Diaz has the obvious upperhand in JJ. Neer almost always performs well, but tends to get caught by the upper echelon of submission experts...so I say Diaz catches him in round 2 or 3.

Agree with grappler, but I would say he gets caught in round 1. Pretty lame match-up IMO. This isn't really a step up from Pellegrino while Danzig's second fight is Guida.

but dont think its that lame, pretty sure you wouldnt say that if it was Din Thomas who had beaten Neer, its maybe not a step up but its certainly not a step down so i like the fight, still Diaz by triangle too simplistic?

I must say, at first i thought it was a step down, but now i think im agreeing with cornish a bit more in thinking that its just not a step up... Neer is game almost all the time... but i can't help but think they're just feeding this guy to Diaz after his impressive come from behind victory over Pellegrino... Im pretty confident that Diaz takes this one

Neer is a tough opponent so dont count him out, this should be an exciting fight both guys are going to bring it. Diaz via armbar late round 2.

neer is tough as nails, but he is a step down from pellegrino, nate should sub him just like his brother did.

Just one more SUB win for Diaz.....I think a fight with Joe Stevenson would have been a lot more interesting....
