We’ve all heard the phrase ‘keyboard warrior’, however when troll Patrick Martin repeatedly harassed UFC veteran Josh Neer on his Facebook profile, calling Neer out, and threatening to send Neer to the hospital if he chose to accept the challenge, Neer decided to actually invite the troll to his gym after weeks of harassment.

Neer posted a short video on his YouTube channel of himself landing brutal ground and pound on Martin before being separated, but not before landing one final soccer kick on the downed troll.

He spoke to BloodyElbow to explain the situation:

“Basically the guys a dumbass and been talking shit about MMA fighters for a month. On and on, I usually ignore him but this Saturday he wrote me on Facebook, the message I gave. He had written 10 messages to me talking shit, which I ignored, but this time I said ‘if you really want to fight come to the gym Monday at 5:30.’

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.

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 then me, so of course he chose me.”

You can see the brief video of Neer fighting Martin below, as well as screenshot evidence of Martin’s trolling.
