MMAJunkie.com reported the rumored bout late last week.
Diaz (9-2) has compiled four straight victories in the UFC over Manny Gamburyan, Junior Assuncao, Alvin Robinson, and, most-recently at UFC Fight Night 13, Kurt Pellegrino. Neer (24-6-1), “The Densit”, is just .500 in the UFC with a 3-3 record but has won his last three straight bouts including a UFC victory over Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 13 in April.
A location has not been determined for the September 17th event which will air on Spike TV and serve as the lead-in for the debut episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 8″.
