Aaron Simpson confirmed he will be fighting on the July 11 UFC on FUEL TV 4 card via his Twitter account recently. Over the week, during a Q&A session, Simpson also made it known that he will be facing Jon Fitch in his welterweight debut.
Simpson went 6-3 as a middleweight in the UFC, but feels like a drop in weight classes will make him more of a contender. Fitch is a former title-contender in the division, but is coming off a knockout loss to Johny Hendricks.
UFC on FUEL TV 4 will feature a main event between middleweights Chris Weidman and Mark Munoz. Simpson-Fitch is likely to serve on the main card, as well.
