A cut down to 170 pounds sounds like a pretty good idea to former Arizona State wrestler Aaron Simpson; so he will now officially make the move.

Simpson, who fought at the inaugural UFC on Fuel event in Omaha, Neb., in February, lost a decision to Ronny Markes and remarked afterwards that he was considering a move from middleweight to welterweight.

This is a great move sadly probably too late in his career to make a serious title run but I think he will be dominant at 170.

There are some tough wrestlers at 170 so he should fit right in.

i think a move down will help him, not saying hes gonna be a world beater at 170 but there are some good matchups for him at WW
