Joshua Martin Neer (born March 24, 1983) is an American mixed martial arts fighter from Des Moines, Iowa. He trains with Des Moines Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Des Moines, Iowa. Neer is formerly an MFS (Miletich Fighting Systems) Elite fighter.


MMA career



Neer began fighting in the MMA in 2002 at the Toad Holler Fight Club where he started and finished his amateur career and went 11–0. Neer won 4 of the bouts by KO and 4 by submission. Neer would then enter MMA professionally. Even though that is all his record shows he was actually 87–1 at Toad Holler Fight Club sometimes fighting two to three times a night. His only loss as an amateur was to Kevin Burns of the Des Moines Jiu Jitsu Academy.

Start of Professional Career

Neer began his professional career on March 15, 2003 by knocking out Josh Kennedy. Neer then won twice and drew once before losing his first fight to Spencer "The King" Fisher by split decision. After losing to Fisher, Neer won his next ten fights, including the XKK (Xtreme Kage Kombat) Welterweight Championship.

Stints in Ultimate Fighting Championships

Neer signed with the UFC and lost his first fight to Drew Fickett by submission at the inaugural Ultimate Fight Night.

Neer fought his next three fights outside the UFC and went 2–1 before going back to the UFC.

He submitted Melvin Guillard at Ultimate Fight Night 2 and beat Joe Stevenson, who won the Welterweight division of The Ultimate Fighter 2, at Ultimate Fight Night 3. Neer then lost his next two fights, to Josh Burkman at UFC 61 and by submission to Nick Diaz at UFC 62.

Again out of the UFC, Neer went 6–1 in his next seven fights before returning to defeat Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night: Florian vs Lauzon. He lost to Nathan Diaz in the main event at UFC Fight Night: Diaz vs Neer, but followed that defeat with a win at UFC Fight Night: Lauzon vs Stephens over The Ultimate Fighter: Team Hughes vs Team Serra winner, Mac Danzig, by triangle choke in the second round.

Neer lost a unanimous decision over Kurt Pellegrino. Throughout the fight Neer made signals that Pellegrino wasn't doing anything, and was visibly upset at the end of the 3rd round. Neer fought Gleison Tibau as a late replacement for injured Sean Sherk at UFC 104 on October 24 and lost the fight due to a unanimous decision. Neer was subsequently released from the UFC with a record of 2–3 since his return to the organization.[1]

In his first fight following his latest UFC release, Neer defeated Matt Delanoit by TKO at MAX Fights DM Ballroom Brawl IV in Des Moines, Iowa, on January 8.

Drunk driving arrest

On New Year's Day January 1, 2009, Neer was arrested by the Des Moines police and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated", hit-and-run, eluding police and other traffic violations.[2]

Personal life

Neer has a daughter.[3]
