Jon Fitch Welcomes Aaron Simpson to the UFC Welterweight Division

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 MMAWeekly.com 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.

I thought at first that Fitch was moving up in weight. It wouldn't be a bad idea. Imagine Uberfitch.

Pretty good matchup for Simpson actually, I don't think Fitch can do what he usually does to his opponents.

I agree, it's actually a pretty interesting style matchup. It may not be the most aesthetically pleasing fight, but I think Simpson creates a lot of real problems for Fitch. If you look at Fitch's record, he hasn't beaten a lot of top level wrestlers. There are a few college level wrestlers like Brock Larson and Mike Pierce(who he struggled with), but the two best wrestlers he ever fought were GSP and Johnny Hendricks, and he lost to both of them.

Simpson is an excellant wrestler and a much more powerful striker than Fitch. I'm guessing the odds will be pretty skewed in Fitch's favor, but there might be some money to be made on Simpson for those so inclined.

What if Fitch does an anti-GSP and just starts steamrolling everything in his path?

 My husband and I disagree on this.  He thinks Fitch wins by UD, I think the A-Train gets a KO.  We'll see who has to take out the garbage that week...

It's kinda hard to tell if Hendricks or Fitch is the better wrestler because the only thing that happened in that fight was Hendricks punching Fitch's face off his face.

I think it's fair to say that Hendricks is a far more accomplished wrestler as a 2x national champion than Fitch. I know that doesn't mean that he's a better mma wrestler, but on paper Hendricks is the best wrestler Fitch has ever fought(along with GSP), and he lost to both of them.
