Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

Neil Seery hoped to end his mixed martial arts (MMA) career on a high note going into his final fight against Alexandre Pantoja on the undercard of UFC Fight Night 113: “Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio” in Glasgow, Scotland. Pantoja, though, didn’t want to play nice.

After a thrilling two rounds, “The Cannibal” managed to get the fight to the ground and lock in an air-tight rear-naked choke that left Seery with no other choice but to tap or nap.

Unfortunately for Neil, the 37-year old ends his combat career on a two-fight losing skid, going 16-13 throughout his 12-year career, including going 3-4 inside the Octagon.

The win for the 27-year old Pantoja was his eleventh in a row that dates back all the way to 2010.
