They call Geoff Neal “Handz of Steel” for good reason.
Neal looked to make it seven in a row when he faced the tough and durable Mike Perry at UFC 245 in Las Vegas last December.
In a battle between two strikers, the power difference was apparent as Neal made quick work of Perry who, at that point, had never been stopped due to strikes.
Just over a minute into the fight, Neal connected with a big head kick that rocked “Platinum.” Seeing the opening for a swift finish, Neal continued to pile on the pressure before eventually finishing his man with a barrage of strikes.
Neal (13-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) returns to action Saturday when he takes on former two-time title challenger Stephen Thompson (15-4-1 MMA, 10-4-1 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 183, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
