Matt Secor: Josh Neer is a D-Bag after pulling out of Bellator 140
Interview by Adam Crist, write up by Eric Kowal
With just one week until the fight, Matt Secor tells MyMMANews.com that his opponent Josh “the Dentist” Neer has pulled out of their fight scheduled, July 17 fight for Bellator 140 at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, with absolutely no explanation given.
A fired up Secor tells us that if Neer was having a weight issue it would not have mattered because he would have fought Neer at any weight.
He also tells us that he does not fight for money, he fights because he loves to fight. “I’m financially stable,” Secor said.
Secor also recaps on the viral video that was released earlier this year that caused the MMA community to go in uproar after Neer got into an unsanctioned fight with a guy who walked into his gym and mouthed off to him. Whether Neer was in the right or wrong is to be determined on an individual basis but Secor does not seem to be very impressed.
Bellato 140 will go on as scheduled with Doughlas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov squaring off in the main event.
Secor, a competitor on the Ultimate Fighter season 16, says that Bellator has told him he will be on the next Bellator card in Connecticut, possibly in October.
