MMA fighter Josh Neer‘s gym beatdown was NOT a violation of Iowa Athletic Commission rules … and therefore he will not be disciplined for his role in the fight … TMZ Sports has learned.
As we previously reported … the IAC launched an investigation into Neer (who’s 36-14 in pro fights) to see if he broke any Commission rules when he decided to fight Patrick Martin earlier this week.
But according to IAC honcho Joe Walsh … Neer is clean — telling TMZ Sports, “We’ve determined that we don’t have anything in our rules that covers incidents that take place in a gym.”
Walsh adds, “Because of that, there will be no further investigation. We’ve closed the case.”
