Aaron Simpson To Make Welterweight Debut Against Jon Fitch   [View Full Version]
Budgellism » Posted 4/8/07 11:45:00AM

Aaron Simpson decided that he wanted to be a big welterweight instead of a smaller middleweight, and will make the drop to 170 pounds. He'll be in tough in his debut fight though, drawing one of the top welterweights in the world. MMA Weekly has the news:

Aaron Simpson’s first trip to welterweight will be a tough test for the former NCAA All-American, as he faces former title contender Jon Fitch.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the bout to MMA Weekly on Wednesday with bout agreements issued for the contest, but no date has been named yet for the event the welterweight showdown will take place at.

Rumors have placed the Fitch vs. Simpson bout’s likely landing pad at UFC 149 in Calgary, but again nothing is set in stone at this time.

Solid match-up if Simpson has a good weight cut, he could be pretty strong and could out Fitch, Fitch. Though I think Fitch gets back on the horse in this fight

ooo I'd love A-Train to dish Fitch another loss.

I agree.....the guy has VERY few losses, even lately with his flash KO loss. I would have had Fitch vs Shields in a blanket match.

Simpson is getting old. This cut is going to hurt his cardio considering he already has cardio issues in most fights, and age makes it harder to cut.

Fitch should be a solid pick here.
