When Mark Munoz and Aaron Simpson met in the Octagon at UFC 123 they did so as familiar foes having wrestled in college where both were All-Americans. As happens with most fights between wrestlers the majority of the fight was contested standing up with a smattering of takedowns sprinkled throughout. It was not the most technically sound fight but was absolutely an entertaining brawl.
Munoz worked off of hard leg kicks for the majority of the bout which left Simpson's leg swollen and marked up by the final bell. He mixed in a steady attack of punches as well coming from wide angles but often finding their mark on the chin of Simpson. Aaron was not to be outdone firing back with heavy punches of his own but in the punching exchanges he was fairly consistently beaten.
SB Nation saw the bout as a very close 30-27 for Munoz but all three judges saw the fight at 29-28 for Munoz who rebounds successfully from his recent loss to Yushin Okami. For Simpson it's two losses in a row with the last coming against Chris Leben.
