Geoff Neal is one of the hottest new stars in mixed martial arts. He currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight division and is quickly rising up the rankings. Geoff has a professional record of 13-2 with nine wins by knockout, two submissions and two decisions.
Born on June 26th 1989 in California, Geoff was raised by his single mother who instilled a strong work ethic into him from an early age. Despite having to look after himself from an early age, he managed to stay focused on his studies and graduated high school with honors before attending college where he played football for three years as well as competing in amateur MMA fights on the side. After graduating college Geoff moved to Houston Texas where he started training at Gracie Barra under UFC veteran Mike Bronzoulis which led him to gain his first championship victory over Bellator veteran Marcus Gaines winning via unanimous decision thus launching him onto the big stage which earned him a spot on Dana White’s Contender Series (DWC) where he defeated Chance Recountre via KO punch setting off a five fight win streak leading him all the way up to signing with UFC this year.
Since joining UFC, Geoff has seen immediate success winning both of his Octagon appearances so far against Niko Price via TKO punches and most recently Randy Brown via rear naked choke submission – showcasing not only that impressive striking ability but also his grappling prowess too! With that being said it’s no surprise why many are predicting big things for “Handz of Steel” going forward!
Outside of fighting, Geoff enjoys spending time playing video games or watching movies when he can get some downtime between training sessions or media obligations although you won’t find any trash talking coming out of this humble athlete’s mouth – instead you’ll be more likely to hear how thankful he is for getting another chance inside The Octagon usually followed by expressing how badly wants that next win!
