Video: Former UFC Fighter Challenged Relentless Internet ‘Bully’ to a Fight. Unfortunately for Bully, He Accepted.
After a month of online harassment, former UFC fighter Josh Neer was sick and tired of dealing with an Internet “bully.”
He reportedly received several more taunting messages from the bully on Facebook Saturday, so Neer told the man if he really wanted to fight him, he could come to his gym at 5:30 on Monday.
“I don’t know what his problem is but he’s a big guy, like 6-6 and 270 pounds and just acts like a bully. That what he seems like to me, just a bully,” Neer told Bloody Elbow. “He showed up at 6:10, 40 mins into my practice. And then I asked him if he wanted to fight Rakim or me and Rakim is bigger [than] me, so of course he chose me.”
But despite all the big talk from the large bully, a brutal 14 second video uploaded on YouTube Monday seems to suggest he did not emerge from the fight victorious. However, Neer has been criticized by some for seemingly getting in a couple late hits and going all out on the untrained fighter.

The challenger later posted online after the fight that he was fine and even continued to mock the veteran UFC fighter.
Do you think Neer handled his bully in the right way?
