A battle of resurgent welterweights will be going down at UFC on FX 3 on June 8th. Mike Pyle, who got back in the win column in January, will face off with Josh Neer, who is 2-0 since his return to the UFC. Pyle mentioned the booking in an interview yesterday, then confirmed the fight via twitter today:
Pyle (22-8-1) has fought in the octagon eight times over the last three years, going 5-3. He had a three-fight winning streak snapped by Rory MacDonald at UFC 133, but got back on track with a TKO stoppage of Ricardo Funch at UFC 142. Neer (33-10-1), who has been in the UFC for three separate stints, has stopped both Keith Wisniewski and Duane Ludwig in his current run.
