Nate Diaz’s next scheduled fight will take place against Josh Neer at UFC Fight Night 15 on Sept. 17, according to GracieFighter.com, a website owned and operated by Diaz’s trainer, Cesar Gracie.
Neer, 24-6-1, according to Sherdog’s fight finder, is currently on a three fight win streak and was victorious in his UFC return at UFC Fight Night 13 this past April. Taking on Din Thomas in a lightweight encounter, Neer won the bout via unanimous decision.
Diaz, the younger brother of EliteXC competitor Nick Diaz, is 9-2 in 11 pro bouts and is a perfect 4-0 during his brief UFC career with victories over Manny Gamburyan, Junior Assuncao, Alvin Robinson, and Kurt Pellegrino.
UFC Fight Night 14 is expected to be held at the Pearl at the Palms and will serve as a prelude to the season premiere of the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter” on Spike TV. In addition to the Neer vs. Diaz bout, fights between Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer and Tamdan McCrory vs. Luke Cummo are rumored as well.
