Brad Tavares hasn't fought in half a year, but he still received just a month's notice that he'd be fighting Aaron Simpson at Saturday's UFC 132 event.
Despite a shortened fight camp ahead of arguably his toughest opponent yet, Tavares sees plenty of perks in taking the fight - such as gaining bonus points with his bosses.
"You scratch their back, and they'll scratch yours," he today told MMAjunkie.com Radio. "Besides, at the same time, I'm helping my career. Me and my coaches think this is a good fight for me."
