Tough fight to make a pick for. My gut tells me Pierce by UD but its such a close fight.

I think Pierce takes the UD here. This is a huge step up for Simpson at WW, and Pierce will probably wear him down and take him down...not sure about punishing him, but probably grinding away as he usually does.

Badass fight imo

Gonna be a hard pick

Could go either way. Could be a tough battle. I think Pierce will take it split.

Great fight. Going to be hell on deciding who to pick, though.

should be a great fight. i couldnt begin to try and make a decision on who wins. i dont see any KOTN coming out of it but it could be a stand up war between 2 wrestlers. i would like to see simpson win it though
