Recently, UFC veteran Josh Neer posted a video online of himself brutally beating a man who has since be identified as Patrick Martin. Neer explained that Martin had harassed him continually via Facebook, and finally he offered Martin a challenge to spar, which Martin accepted. At this point there are two very different stories being told. While the video shows Neer dominating the sparring session, it is only 14 seconds long, and Martin says that the rest of the round is very different than the last 14 seconds, and that Neer jumped him when he went to pick up his mouthguard.
Below are several fighters reactions to the situation.
