"I had nothing to lose. I was going to go in there and bang it out. I was going to go through whatever I had to go through [to get the win].... I knew that I had more heart than him.... Win, lose or draw I'm going to bring it. Anybody that faces me they're going to have to deal with that -- they're going to have to deal with someone who isn't going to lay down. I'm not going to be a stepping stone for anybody."
Josh Neer reflects on his gutty and hard-fought win over Mac Danzig at UFC Fight Night 17: "Lauzon vs. Stephens" last night at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla. The toothless "Dentist" walked through punches and delivered some of his own to put on another exciting performance. In fact, it earned him and Danzig "Fight of the Night" honors and $30,000 each in extra bonus money. It was the second straight such award for Neer -- he and Nate Diaz put on a three-round thriller back in December. Who would you like to see him take on next? Tell us in the comments section below.
