The Simpson vs. McKenzie matchup will pit a current member of Arizona Combat Sports, Simpson, vs. one of its former members, McKenzie. Both fighters will also be making their UFC debuts after being transferred over from the WEC following the latter’s decision to close its middleweight and light heavyweight divisions.

Haven't personally seen Simpson fight. But I have see McKenzie and he doesn't impress me at all. So I will take Simpson in this fight.

simpson rd 1 ko/tko stoppage......mckzenie is just one of those middle of the road fighters that are decent at everything not good or great at anything.....seems to fight more for the paycheck and have something to do with his time than to actually make something of himself in the sport.....not bashing, just my opionon from what ive seen......simpson is a true up and comer, with excellent wrestling background, and serious power (that last fight with the ko was awesome!!!), and coming from acs, he's not gonna be a slouch in the jj department escpially against any submission attempt that tim will try.....i see simpson landing a one or multiple big shots in the first, and if tim doesnt drop, aaron takes him down after the shots, and finishes it off there

So did anyone see Simpson's last fight against David Avellan? Freaking brutal KO in 18 seconds of round 1.

And im guessing McKenzie is dropping to 185 for this fight.

As long as McKenzie keeps his awesome mohawk I'll be happy. His mohawk is the stuff of legends.
