By the end of 2010, Aaron Simpson was stuck in a two-fight losing skid, and his UFC career was in jeopardy.

Twelve months later, he's riding a three-fight win streak and even willing to take a late-notice booking before year's end.

Welcome to the up-and-down world of a professional MMA fighter.

Simpson (11-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) defeated resilient middleweight Eric Schafer (12-6-2 MMA, 3-5 UFC) at this past Saturday's UFC 136 event. In a Facebook-streamed preliminary-card bout at Houston's Toyota Center, he beat down Schafer for three rounds en route to a 30-27 unanimous-decision victory.

Although he didn't get the finish, Simpson wasn't about to ignore the lesson he learned from a teammate who fought the jiu-jitsu ace in 2009.

Looked good last time out, maybe could have gotten the finish.

But give him another fight, the man isn't getting any younger.

I hope he fights again this year, imo a second fight with Ed Herman makes sense right now, would be a pretty good scrap
