Brad Tavares In Against Aaron Simpson At UFC 132

With Jason “Mayhem” Miller off to coach The Ultimate Fighter 14 opposite Michael Bisping, Aaron Simpson will now face Brad Tavares at UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber 2 this summer.

The UFC recently announced the news on their official website.

Technically undefeated Brad Tavares was a castmember on the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter, where he lost in the semi-finals to Court McGee. Since then, Tavares has gone 2-0 in the UFC, taking out fellow TUF 11 castmate Seth Baczynski as well as MMA veteran Phil Baroni. Overall, the 23-year-old Hawaiian is 7-0, with four of those wins coming by way of KO/TKO, two submissions and one decision.

In exhibition bouts from TUF 11, Tavares is 3-1.

After getting off to a strong start in the UFC, taking out his first three opponents, Aaron Simpson hit a two-fight skid by dropping contests to Chris Leben and Mark Munõz. In his most recent outing, the 36-year-old bounced back by taking out Mario Miranda via unanimous decision. Simpson is 9-2 overall and 4-2 in the UFC.

UFC 132 goes down this July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
