When it comes to the welterweight division in the UFC it is a gauntlet of talent and one of those uber-talented guys is #11 ranked Geoff “Handz of Steel” Neal (13-2). Neal has won all five of his fights inside the famed UFC octagon and four of those by highlight reel finishes.
With most of the top ten booked in upcoming bouts, it has put “Handz of Steel” in a unique position. The options are limited but Neal has one opponent in mind and that’s #7 Michael Chiesa (16-4). Neal a product of Fortis MMA has put the division on notice and is ready for whoever the UFC puts in front of him but has earned the right to crack the top ten and some might say the top five. What will happen remains to be seen.
Geoff was kind enough to sit down with FightBook MMA Fighter Focus to talk about his options, being at Fortis MMA, the state of the division, and much more. Hear the full interview below.
