“I think we both deserved to win. He’s definitely a studly fighter but it’s one of those things where you don’t leave it in the hands of the judges. I thought I could have finished it in the first round but he’s tough… I probably weighed 191 or 192 for this fight and he probably weighed 215 or 220, he’s big. I just don’t cut for this weight class. I look at a guy like Frankie Edgar and I think I can do the same thing, but I’m giving up a lot of size. Maybe it means a move down to 170, I don’t know, but right now it hurts, it hurts to lose.”
UFC middleweight fighter Aaron Simpson took to the UFC on Fuel TV post fight show to discuss his disappointment with his decision loss this evening.
It was a hard fought fight but in the end, he lost the decision on all three-judges’ scorecards. In the cage there was a noticeable size difference and fighting at 192 pounds in the cage he is obviously undersized for the division.
But should he pack on more weight or shed a few more pounds and try his hands at 170?
