The fifth installment of the UFC's fight series on FX has another bout. Aaron Simpson will continue his welterweight campaign as he takes on veteran Mike Pierce as part of the UFC on FX 5 fight card. That event is set to be held October 5th at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota and will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Travis Browne and Antonio Silva.
The match-up was confirmed by MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani.
Simpson, 38, began his welterweight efforts in his last fight where he defeated Kenny Robertson by unanimous decision at UFC on FUEL TV 4. His upcoming bout with Pierce marks his second bout in the 170-poiund division after ten fights at middleweight under the Zuffa banner.
