Josh Neer defeated Duane Ludwig by guillotine choke. The technical submission came at 3:04 in the first round.
Jon Anik repeated multiple times in the build up that Josh Neer was an honorary Diaz Brother because of his ability to survive big shots and his slick submissions. That turned out to be a great comparison at Neer held his own against the K-1 veteran, trading punches with Duane Ludwig. Though Ludwig was getting the better of the stand up, he wasn't dominating Neer as most would expect. It was Neer's legendary chin that kept him in the fight and allowed him to put together a pretty technical finish. Sinking in a guillotine choke, he put Duane Ludwig to sleep before Duane could tap out.
Neer improves to 33-10-1 in his career. Duane Ludwig drops to 21-12 in MMA. It was the sixth submission loss of his career.
