Mac Danzig, season six winner of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality television show on Spike TV, has announced via his official MySpace account that he’ll be facing fellow lightweight competitor Josh Neer during a yet-to-be announced UFC Fight Night event slated for Feb. 7.
Danzig, a former PRIDE veteran, won the TUF 6 welterweight tournament following a first round submission over fellow finalist Tommy Speer. Danzig then returned at UFC 83 in April, where he submitted jiu-jitsu black belt Mark Bocek with a rear naked choke at 3:48 of round 3.
Danzig’s most recent fight took place at UFC Fight Night 15 in September, where he lost a unanimous decision to Clay Guida. The defeat dropped Danzig’s record to 18-5-1.
He will look to get back on the winning track against Neer, a three-time UFC veteran who returned to the promotion at UFC Fight Night 13 in April, where he recorded a unanimous decision victory over Din Thomas. Neer, 24-7-1, also fought at UFC Fight Night 15, where he lost in the night’s main event via split decision against season five winner from “The Ultimate Fighter,” .
