Guess I'll go with Herman Unanimous...

He trains out of the Team Quest in Oregon doesn't he? Home town advantage!

Interesting fight. Simpson has the better wrestling, and more power in his fists...but Herman is more technical on the feet, and has better ju jitsu.

Tough one to pick for me, but I think Herman gets the sub from his back...maybe a armbar.

i would rather see irvin vs goueveia or even ed vs wilson but 11 fights are better than 10 when it comes down to it, tough fight to pick

Pretty sure Simpson is a division 1 wrestler if I remember right, so the wrestling is either in his favor or as good as Herman, just because hes at Quest dosnt mean he can take everyone down.

Simpsons striking is phenomenal, sick footwork, awesome combinations, hes being seriously underestimated imo and I see a KO in his favor quite quickly as Herman realizes he cant strike with Simpson and probably cant take him down and if he does he should look to submit him if he can.
