John Alessio vs. Josh Neer Set To Headline Superior Cage Combat in August

Joshua CareySenior Analyst IJune 7, 2011

John Alessio (31-14) is slated to face UFC veteran Josh "The Dentist" Neer (29-10-1) at Superior Cage Combat in August.

Alessio announced the fight on Twitter, and Bleacher Report confirmed the news with a source close to the event.

Alessio stated: "I'm super pumped to take on multiple vet Josh 'the Dentist' Neer in the Main event Aug 20th @ the Orleans in Vegas!"

Superior Cage Combat will take place from The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on August 20.

Alessio is 7-1 since May 2009 and will be looking to extend that impressive record when he faces Neer. The Xtreme Couture-trained welterweight has notched 10 knockouts and 14 submissions in his career and could be one or two victories away from returning to the UFC.

Neer has won back-to-back fights since suffering a submission loss to top-10 lightweight Eddie Alvarez in May 2010.
