Fans were able to ask Aaron Simpson questions and were even treated to a fight announcement and some predictions, the following are some of the highlights from today’s Q&A:

Q:  How do you prepare for your fights?

A:  “I never really stop training.  With my teammates Ryan Bader, CB Dollaway and Seth Baczynski constantly having fights I am always training with those guys, who keep me fit.  I always stay in some sort of shape.  I usually hold 8 week training camps, with 2 or 3 a day’s….I’m getting older, so sometime its no-a-days.”

Simpson talking to the fans during the Q&A

Q:  Why the move down to Welterweight?

A:  “I walk around at 193 pounds.  Most of my opponents are walking around at well over 200 lbs.”

Q:  What is your biggest anxiety about dropping from Middleweight to Welterweight?

A:  “The weight cut.  I will probably go vegan for this training camp.  I am working with George Lockhardt who says the cut won’t be nearly as difficult as I think.  At age 37, I haven’t weight 171 pounds since my Senior year in high school.”

Q:  Who would be your dream fight at Welterweight?

A:  GSP.  Only because he has a torn ACL right now.  I think now is the time to get him.  Actually, I will be fighting Jon Fitch on July 11th for my first fight at Welterweight.”

Q:  Who would you want to fight if you could fight any MMA fighter of all time?

A:  I think I would like to fight Tank Abbott…..right after he got off a bar stool.  Don Frye would be cool.  Dan Severn would be fun.  We are both Sun Devils

Q:  Who will win the fight, tomorrow night, between Poirier and the Korean Zombie?

A:  Poirier in the 2nd.

Q:  How about Cerrone v. Stephens?

A:  Cerrone will get “back on the horse” with what should be a win vs. Stephens.
