He made his promotional debut against Jon Manley at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale where he lost via submission due to an armbar technique displayed by Manley late into round 2 of their fight .

Although no championship gold has been achieved yet there’s no doubt that Neil will continue striving towards becoming world champion eventually if given enough opportunities throughout what should be deemed an illustrious career worth remembering when it’s all said done years down line or so many believe anyway !
