Geoff “Handz of Steel” Neal, 29, has earned his fifth consecutive victory in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Fighting out of Harker Heights, Texas, United States, he was one of the winners at “UFC 245.”

Featuring 13 MMA fights, the UFC held “UFC 245” at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States on December 14, 2019. In the eighth bout of the evening, Neal competed in the welterweight division against Mike “Platinum” Perry, 28, of Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA.

Chris Tognoni served as the referee of the welterweight bout. He put a stop to the contest after 1 minute and 30 seconds in the first round when Neal knocked out Perry via punches.

“It feels great to get out of there quickly with a guy like Perry,” Neal said in his post-fight interview. “I was ready for war, if I die, I die, you know? That was my mindset because that’s his mindset so I have to match that.”
