That's his opinion of his win over Tom Lawlor at last night's UFN 20. Simpson said he got wobbled early on but "went BOOM" and recovered quickly, then he was right back in it. He was surprised by how quickly he recovered.

Simpson has a rock solid chin or Lawlor has no punching power.

I think after witnessing that fight it is easy to declare that Simpson has a solid chin/good recovery and Lawlor does in fact have punching power. Just because Lawlor was unable to knock out Simpson does not mean he has no punching power. The fact that he was able to wobble Simpson with punches(several times) ultimately disproves that he has no power.

I think it's more like Naseem Hamed , Simpson doesn't have a great chin he just has good recovery skills, I think Simpson will learn from this and will come back a better fighter for this reason.

Every time I read/hear this name, I want to break something. I've always hated this douchebag.

It was a really good fight. Simpson showed a lot of heart and composure after coming back from that first round.

For a guy that was only in his 7th professional fight this says good things about his future.
