UFC 132 just got better

Yesterday Jason “Mayhem” Miller signed with the UFC after being basically left out in the cold by his former masters at Strikeforce, his last fight there was more than a year ago. He already has a date and opponent… fancy that. He is set to take on Aaron Simpson at UFC 132 on July 2nd. Good fight to see if Miller can handle a wrestler without pitting him against anybody really good. Simpson is 1-2 in his last 3 fights including a knockout to Chris Leben. Plus he is 36 years old. Mayhem seems to fail against high level grapplers like Jake Shields or Jacare but Simpson is not one of those guys. Millers last fight was against Zombie Sakuraba in basically a can match. It’s been a few years and a few pounds since he stepped into the Octagon against GSP so a nice proving fight is in order.

UFC 132 features Dominic Cruz vs Urijah Faber for the Bantamweight Belt, Tito Ortiz vs Ryan Bader is the nights “wrestlers trying to box” fight, Carlos Condit vs Dong Hyun Kim, and George Sotiropoulos vs Evan Dunham in a fight to get the Aussie back in the running. Another fight rumored for the event is Wanderlei Silva vs Chris Leben which is going to be the ultimate slobber knocker.

    “His last fight was against Zombie Sakuraba in basically a can match.”

    He is nonetheless the first guy to beat Sakuraba by (a non-worked) submission.

    simpson won his last fight against miranda in seattle. i saw it, it was wall and stall boring as fuck

  • Redping says:

    This article reads like it was written by a drunk cat. I mean I know the MMA media has a rep for being a bunch of girls but we don’t have to start adopting their grammar habits do we?

    Aaron simpson isn’t old, he isn’t on a two fight losing streak, and you should punctuate and learn to spell Octagon

  • Reverend Clint says:

    yeah sorry about that i think i kept looking at mario mirandas record instead of simpsons, miranda is on a 2 fight losing streak.

    Simpson is 36 so he is old

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    Bad fight for Simpson, unless he has made leaps and bounds in his cardio and striking he won’t be able to hang with Miller especially in the grappling department.

     

    Granted Mayhem has lost to sheilds and jacare but he did not get submitted, I repeat the clown who host an tv show has faced two of the best  and most decorated grapplers in the sport and was not submitted, wtf is Aaron “1 round of cardio” Simpson going to do when he is blowing takedown after takedown and flurrying at air.

    Also don’t be surprised if Cruz vs Faber 2 turns out to be a foty candidate, their first fight wasn’t boring so why the hell will this one be?

  • agentsmith says:

    Also don’t forget that Mayhem came within a cunthair of choking out Shields, who was literally saved by the bell.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    yeah mayhem is better than a lot of people give him credit… i think he would have a higher fighter profile is he hadnt dicked around in dream and strikeforce

    i cant wait to watch leben vs silva… two of my favorite exciting fighters in the same cage

  • Sodomize Intolerance says:

    Last 3 fights is a convenient number to make Simpson look like the biggest loser possible.  How about a rounded [base-10] number, like 3-2 in his last 5 fights, or 8-2 in his last 10 fights.

  • Reverend Clint says:

    ^thats the point of him fightng mayhem

  • lukustra says:

    all grapplers and wrestlers, this card has decisions galore written all over it. lets pray to the gods of mma that they add that wandy vs leben fight.

  • subo says:

    agent – nobody’s saved by the bell.  You have five minutes to submit a guy – if you can’t do it within five minutes, it’s not the bell’s fault

    Taking bets on if Tito will actually make this fight.

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    Come the fuck on, give the man a break.

     

    He has a cracked skull ffs.

  • G Funk says:

    Wow, did Black go on an intense psychedelic journey and realize life is too short to be serious all the time or is someone using his account or has he FINALLY realized that this is FightLinker and not MMA Junkie and the likes???

  • Reverend Clint says:

    i think a crqacked skull is the least of tito’s cranial worries

  • agentsmith says:

    LOL at “not the bell’s fault”.  Dude, are you for real?  WTF.
