Josh Neer talks to MMAMania.com about his bout tonight against Eddie Alvarez at Bellator 17:

“Eddie's style is a great match up for me. I always match up well with technical fighters, and from the footage I have seen on Eddie, he is a real technical fighter. He doesn't back down, and this is the thing I love about this fight. He is always coming forward, and he never takes a step backward. I am used to being the one moving forward and having to chase everyone around. In this fight we are going to clash right in the middle of the cage. I am not going to back down, I am not going to want to go backward. I am going to want to go forward, and from what I have seen from Eddie, he wants to move forward, and he wants to be the aggressor. That first sequence in the fight, the first trade is going to be key. I look at this fight in particular as I have a huge opportunity to upset a guy, and I definitely am capable of beating him. I love coming into fights as the underdog because there is no pressure. There is no doubt in my mind that I can beat Eddie. I am going in there to win, not to collect a paycheck. I am going in there to win the fight and that is how I approach every fight.”
