Dallas Huffstetler returns after five years away from the cage to take on the rising prospect Emmanuel Simpson at Fight For It X

Dallas Huffstetler (2-1; Atlantic MMA) vs. Emmanuel Simpson (1-0 Hayastan MMA)

Atlantic MMA featherweight Dallas Huffstetler will enter the cage at Fight For It X with a 2-1 record earned in 2015 and 2016. Looking to avenge the 2016 loss to Josh Whitesides at Settle The Scores 3, Huffstetler will need to lean on his past experience in facing his opponent, the 1-0 Hayastan MMA prospect Emmanuel Simpson.

Simpson made his MMA debut at Fight For It IX in November, 2019, with a dominant decision win over Sam Slyman. Showing strong boxing and ground-and-pound skills, as well as an aggressive tenacity, Simpson proved himself a strong MMA contender in that bout. 

Here, though, he’ll have to hope his debut fight gave enough momentum to counter Huffstetler’s competition experience. If Huffstetler can shake off the ring rust, he’ll give Simpson a tough battle. But five years is a lengthy absence from the cage. Look for Simpson to continue his streak of aggressive forward movement and control to take the win.
