Simpson (5-2-0) is currently the number-ten ranked atomweight fighter in the world, according to the WMMA World Rankings. A victory against the number-seven ranked Amber Brown would be a big one for the rising 105-pound prospect.
“My mindset is to go in there and beat Amber in every position and every exchange,” said Simpson.
The 31-year-old’s ultimate goal is to one day become a UFC world champion. She recently revealed during an interview with Combat Press that she believes the UFC will introduce a women’s atomweight division in the near future.
“It’s only a matter of time,” Simpson suggested. “Atomweight is a small division, but it’s definitely deeper than featherweight. The fights are always exciting, so in my mind I don’t see it being too far off before the UFC adds an atomweight division.”
Invicta FC 26 takes place this Friday December 8 from the Park Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The entire event will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass from 8pm ET.
