i thought Neer was awesome. he showed he was just all around the superior fighter. beat Mac on the feet, in the clinch, and on the ground. overall outstanding performance by Neer. i say he fights Guida next.

I love Josh Neer! The guy always puts on great fights plus I picked him to win over Danzig, who is overated He's got a great well rounded game, and always brings the fight to whoever he's facing.

I think as a TUF winner Danzig just had the crowd behind him, so they were pissed to see him get caught in a sub. As for the taunting, I didn't even think it was that bad. He just held his arms up a bit. If Rashad can grab his crotch and then kiss his hand I dont see the problem in what Neer did.

At some point, I think Neer atually felt bad for Danzig, and even tried to even things up by giving himself a few pops...what a guy .

Meh.. at this point I've come to realize that 90% of the people in a crowd at any MMA event are just TUF'er type fans.

On another note- this fight IMO was an early FOTY type. Awesome action with both guys bringing it. Danzig's standup combinations had me nervous in the first couple minutes, but Neer toughed it out and owned the fight

I'm not a big fan of showboating either, I think it's pretty disrespectful, although when I heard him explain afterwards that he was upset about a headbutt that wasn't called it made more sense and seemed a bit more understandable to me. Sometimes when you're upset and feel that you were wronged in some way you don't really care about being sportsmanlike anymore. I'm sure Mac didn't headbutt him on purpose though.



he was showboating before that, right when the fight started he was doing stuff with his hands and show boating, when i see that i just want to see the guy get blasted, i like neer, he is as tough as anybody but i didn't like all that crap, he isn't accomplished enough to hot dog and not hear it from the fans.

that was my favorite fight of the night , anyone who wins by triangle i go crazy. Neer had the right to showboat he was tooling him the entire time. mac started to play the same game but neer showed him how its done =) but mac talks a lot of smack so he deserved it =)

I tried to prop you as well but GSTL...this had me laughing last night.

I think they booed him because nobody likes The Dentist. But seriously, I never liked him before either, but if he keeps handing people their asses like he did to Danzig I'll like him in no time.

Agreed, the guy wasn't being cocky he was upset that Danzig wouldn't come in and trade with him at the time.

They are fighters man. Josh is a cocky kind of fighter, it happens. you see a lot of a fighters personality when they fight. Mac is more cerebral type fighter.

I hope the next guy who taunts like that get's KTFO.



for some reason when I read that I immediately pictured Rashad doing it to Rampage. Rampage will take his head off
