Neer and Smith first fought each other under the Victory FC banner in December 2013. That meeting ended with Neer submitting Smith in the third round via rear-naked choke. Since then Smith has racked up six straight Ws, with five ending in a TKO or submission. Meanwhile, Neer backed up his victory over Smith with back-to-back wins before he inked a deal with Bellator. After two consecutive losses, Neer dropped from Bellator to resign with Victory and claim the middleweight title.
