The first fight on the UFC on FX 5 main card was a welterweight bout as Josh Neer took on TUF alum Justin Edwards.
As the fight started, Edwards landed an inside shot that surprised near and looked for a takedown.
Neer was able to stop the takedown against the cage, but Edwards jumped on him and locked in a guillotine choke. Neer tried to slam Edwards to get out of the hold and was unsuccessful. With the choked locked in, Neer did not tap and went to sleep.
This is the second UFC win for Edwards (8-2) and his first submission win since 2010 and Neer (33-12-1) has now dropped two straight fights after winning six fights in a row.
