Aaron "A Train" Simpson

So A Train is set to fight Tom Lawlor at UFN 20 on Jan 11th. I was very imbressed in his fight against Herman, he has great speed and explosiveness, but I couldn't help but think he is undersized and this could be a disadvantage if he reaches the upper tier of the MW division.

So what's the deal with A Train, could he make 170? I'm not sure, he looks pretty cut as it is.

Either way, he's a very exciting fighter imo.

I don't think so. He is pretty thick and as you said already in great shape.

Ed Herman is actually a fairly tall MW fighter at 6'2 which made Simpson look smaller.

It was the overal build though, I just rewatched the fight and Herman just has a bigger frame in general. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing Simpson fight again.
