    And Now He’s (Sorta) Fired: Aaron Simpson Not Offered New UFC Contract, Already Booked for WSOF 2 | | Cagepotato

    In a relatively surprising turn of events, 11-fight UFC veteran Aaron Simpson — whose contract expired with the promotion following his second round KO loss to Mike Pierce at UFC on FX 5 – has not been offered a new contract and has subsequently left the UFC.

    The two-time All American out of Arizona announced his drop to the welterweight division in April of 2012 following a 6-3 run at middleweight and was expected to face Jon Fitch at UFC 149. Fitch was forced to bow out with a knee injury shortly thereafter and Simpson was eventually paired up with Kenny Robertson at UFC on FUEL 4, a fight he ended up winning by way of unanimous decision. In his next fight, Simpson squared off against the aforementioned perennial welterweight contender in Pierce. After dropping Pierce in the first round, Simpson would unfortunately find himself KO’d for the first time in his career* following a beautifully placed counter right hand on Pierce’s part early in the second.

    But it’s not all bad news for Simpson, who has already signed a four fight deal with upstart promotion World Series of Fighting according to Ariel Helwani. And in an ironic twist of fates, Simpson will find himself competing at the promotion’s upcoming second event scheduled for March 23rd. “A-Train” will be stepping in against fellow UFC veteran Josh Burkman, who was expected to face undefeated prospect Ryan LaFlare at the event before LaFlare jumped ship to join the UFC.

    Man I'm loving the way WSOF is shaping up. Solid looking card for sure. I really see them giving Bellator a run for their money as the #2 promotion.

    WSOF 2 main card includes Burkman-Simpson, Branch-Filho, Cavalcante-Gaethje

    WSOF 2 main card includes Burkman-Simpson, Branch-Filho, Cavalcante-Gaethje | News

    The main card is set for World Series of Fighting's sophomore show, and a new welterweight matchup between Josh Burkman (24-9) and Aaron Simpson (12-4) is the latest addition to the five-fight main card, officials today announced.



    The event takes place March 23 at Revel Atlantic City in New Jersey. The main card airs on NBC Sports Network.

    Burkman and Simpson are both former UFC fighters. Burkman, a cast member on "The Ultimate Fighter 2," is 6-1 since a 10-fight UFC stint from 2005-2008. He most recently scored a unanimous-decision victory over Gerald Harris in WSOF's debut show back in November.

    Simpson, meanwhile, fights for the first time since his UFC release, which came after a solid 7-4 run in the organization. In fact, Simpson, a two-time NCAA Division I wrestler, was on a 4-1 run before a recent knockout loss to Mike Pierce. It was his second fight since dropping from middleweight to welterweight.
    The latest WSOF 2 card now includes:

    MAIN CARD (NBC Sports Network, 9:30 p.m. ET) • Andrei Arlovski vs. Anthony Johnson
    • Marlon Moraes vs. Tyson Nam
    • Josh Burkman vs. Aaron Simpson
