EDMONTON — Unified MMA is back in a major way with a stacked Unified 40 Main Card, Aug. 14 at River Cree Resort & Casino, LIVE for the first time on UFC FIGHT PASS.
In the Main Event, Graham Park (7-2) defends his Unified MMA Light-Heavyweight Championship for the first time against former title challenger Neil “The Real Deal” Berry (9-9). Park has finished his past four opponents in the first round; all of his victories are by stoppage. All of Berry’s wins have also been finishes. The winner of this bout will be the Unified MMA Champion and widely regarded as the best light-heavyweight contender in Canada.
In the Co-Main Event, Neal Anderson (10-3) battles Maged Hammo (9-5) for the vacant Unified MMA Featherweight Championship. Neal takes aim at his seventh straight victory; all of Hammo’s wins are by stoppage. The winner of this bout will make a strong case for themselves as the next Canadian featherweight to sign with the UFC.
Former champ KB “The Bengal” Bhullar (8-2) makes his highly anticipated return to the Unified MMA cage against former title challenger Anton Tokarchuk (4-4-1) in the light-heavyweight division. Bhullar is hungry to earn his way back to another shot at gold and another opportunity to represent Edmonton in the UFC’s Octagon. Both fighters are highly skilled strikers and eager to add another KO victory to their impressive records.
Fan-favourites Nick “The Savage” Hrabec (7-5) and Kolton “The Maniac” Menzak (7-5) meet in a must-see scrap in the super-lightweight division. Twelve of Hrabec’s and Menzak’s 14 combined wins have come by stoppage.
Also in the super-lightweight class, Andrew Mavridis (1-0) takes on the dangerous and durable Cole Campbell (3-3). Mavridis was 8-0 as an amateur before earning a first-round submission victory in his professional debut at Unified 39. Campbell is gunning for his third submission win in the Unified MMA cage.
Former teammates Maria “Sweet Maria” Djukic (1-0) and Jackie MacLean (1-0) square off in the first women’s MMA match to ever grace a Unified MMA Main Card. This bout will go a long way in deciding who will be the next great Canadian female bantamweight contender.
The Unified MMA Main Card on UFC FIGHT PASS will kick off a pair of exciting lightweight match-ups as Tyrell Giselbrecht (pro debut) battles Jerico MacPhee (1-0), and Mohamad Ali (pro debut) meets Evan Piercey (pro debut), and Ali Charkie (pro debut) clashes with Lorenzo Celis (1-0) in the middleweight division.
The Unified 40 Preliminary Card will be released soon.
