His growing reputation as a skilled MMA fighter brought him to the UFC later in his career and he made his debut against Jon Manley in February 2013. His career has seen many ups and downs during its course, but Neil’s inner strength, emerging from a very tough upbringing, held him strong during the difficult times. His three times ‘Performance of the Night’ bonuses along with one time ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus award, is a testimony to his talent. He is presently at the #8 rank in the UFC Welterweight division.
