Tom Lawlor talks about the loss to Aaron Simpson on the UG:
"I tried to win, I really did. I just watched the fight for the 1st time, not sure if I punched myself out in the 1st but regardless the A-Train pushes a high pace."
"I thought I had the first 2 rounds won and done, but the judges thought otherwise. Not much I can do now, hell....wasn't I supposed to get dominated and TKO'd or KO'd in round 1 or 2?"
"I should have followed to get on top when I hit the standing kimura sweep in the 3rd instead of going for punches.....not sure if the judges scored that as a Simpson takedown, or a Lawlor takedown/submission attempt then a Simpson reversal....I mean regardless, he won the 3rd."
"I won the 1st, thought I won the 2nd (he got 1 takedown, I got 1, rocked him and went for 2 guillotines), and he won the 3rd."
"I have the utmost respect for Simpson, and was a fan of his before the fight, and I'll continue to be a fan in the future."
"Nah, I didn't hit my head on the take down or anything. Like I said at that point I was trying not to make a stupid mistake and give the fight away, which I suppose I did anyways. I, and my corner, thought I was up 2 to 0."
