Following his second-round submission victory over "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner Mac Danzig earlier this month at UFC Fight Night 17, lightweight Josh Neer (25-7-1 MMA, 4-4 UFC) has signed a new four-fight contract with the UFC.

Mickey Dubberly, CEO of KO Dynasty, today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of his client's signing.

The new deal deal comes after a stretch in which Neer has gone 4-1 in his past five fights and 8-2 since November 2006.

i'd say he has earned it due to the performances he put on in his last three fights.

Neer has definitely earned this. he's 2-1 since coming back in April with his 1 loss against Nate Diaz, a split decision i thought he won. his striking has really improved and his BJJ has always been dangerous. i'm happy for Neer and i hope to see him against Pellegrino in his next fight. it would be a great test for both guys, not to mention it would most certainly win FOTN.

Neer has definately came into his own, he was more than entertaining to watch in his last fight with Danzig! Hopefully there could be a Batman/Dentist match on the horizon!?!

Neer is mean! I loved how he just came forward throwing bombs. Its not the smartest but he has a chin and it is exciting to watch. I'm glad they extended his contract.

Haha my bad I got a bit confused because the last thing I saw of him before his last fight was an episode of UFC Unleased. Haha my bad. He still looks a hell of a lot older than 43 though if you ask me.

Neer is a monster havin that many fights and being so young is crazy to me. I watched the fight with diaz and couldve gone either way but if they fight 10 mre times i say neer takes at least 8 of them.
