Josh Neer: Omaha brings out the best in me
November 25, 2013: VictoryFighter.com: You are considered one of the pioneers of Midwest MMA. What is different about the sport today than how it was when you first began your career? Josh Neer: “I think there’s a lot that’s changed for one, everyone makes a lot more money. My first pro fight I fought a heavyweight and weighed 170 and made $60. Another thing that’s different is when I came up I wanted to fight the best guys in my area so I could get into the UFC. Now days, no one wants to fight the best guys, because they want to protect their record and get on TUF (The Ultimate Fighter). No my style; I wish that anyone that wanted to be on TUF had to have legit fights…not fighting a bunch of turds, having a mohawk and a couple of cool tattoos.”
