Mike Pyle defeated Josh Neer by Knockout at 4:56 of the first round

Mike Pyle did what only one man (Mark Miller) has ever done in Josh Neer's 45 fights - knock him out. Neer was coming on near the end of the first, but Pyle clubbed him with a thunderous right with just four seconds left in the first round that left Neer out cold.

Pyle got a takedown 40 seconds in the the bout and worked in Neer's guard. Neer went for a leglock but couldn't get anything. He then went for a triangle but got shut down again. Neer made it up with a single leg and opened up with his striking a bit. Pyle responded with two knees and a right. Neer started digging to the body against the cage. Neer was backing Pyle up, but out of nowhere he landed a huge right hook that sent Neer to the mat face-first and unconscious. It was an excellent shot.

Pyle was coming off an 82-second TKO of Ricardo Funch at UFC 142 and had won four of his last five bouts. Neer entered the bout on a seven-fight winning streak, the last two coming in the UFC over Keith Wisniewski and Duane Ludwig.
