Simpson vs. Pierce Wiki Update Wiki

Aaron Simpson met Mike Pierce on the main card of UFC on FX 5 in the welterweight division.

Round 1

The wrestlers locked horns in the first and jockeyed for position. An uneventful first half of the round gave way to a few big salvos in the second half, with both fighters landing some heavy hooks. Pierce took the heavier shots and looked a bit wobbly after one exchange. Neither man could get the better of the positional battles throughout the first.

Round 2

Early into the first, Pierce caught an oncoming Simpson with a huge right hand to the chin that flattened him. Several follow-up punches had Simpson unconscious on the canvas with Pierce jumping for joy.

The end came 0:29 into the second round, giving Pierce the KO victory. Speaking with Jon Anik following the win, Pierce said, "He had be wobbled pretty good in the first round, but I don't give up easily and I knew I had to do something to come back and win this fight.
