EDMONTON – Unified 45 will take place on Friday, May 27, 2022, at River Cree Resort & Casino in Enoch, AB, LIVE on UFC Fight Pass.
In the Main Event, Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (23-5) takes on Atlanta’s Robert “The Blue King” Hale (11-5) for the inaugural Unified MMA Canadian Super-Welterweight Title. In the Co-Main Event, Christian Larsen (6-2) defends his Unified MMA Canadian Heavyweight Championship for the second time against UFC vet Rashad “Daywalker” Coulter (9-5). In the Feature Bout, Maged Hammo (10-6-1) and Neal Anderson (11-4) meet in a highly anticipated rematch for the Unified MMA Canadian Featherweight Championship.
Two Canadians will face each other on this card as top prospect Jett Grande (2-0-1) who fights out of Red Deer, Alberta will face Colton Boxell (1-2) fighting out of Medicine Hat, Alberta in the super lightweight division. Grande is ranked 16th of 47 active Western CA Pro Lightweights and is also ranked 20th in the welterweight division. He’s undefeated in his young Pro MMA career with his recent win against Steven Thomas at Unified MMA 42. He returns to the Unified cage to get another win under his belt and climb the rankings to one day be champ. Boxell is stepping into the cage with a recent loss against Joel Paquette via unanimous decision at PFC 11: Knockout Kidney Disease back in 2019. He did have a fight scheduled to face Chris Robinson in Rumble in the Cage 63 in 2021, but this entire event was canceled due to the COVID pandemic. Now he will have a chance to showcase his skills in front of the Canadian crowd.
In another bout with major implications on the global stage, the top prospect in Canada, Winnipeg’s Mariusz “The Iron Pol” Ksiazkiewicz (10-1), returns to our cage to battle Israeli’s top prospect, Eli Aronov (5-0) in Unified MMA’s loaded middleweight division. Also on the Unified 45 Main Card on UFC Fight Pass are the following exciting matchups between hungry prospects: Phil Engeroff (2-0) vs. Mac Laursen (1-1), Izzudeen Atmeh (2-2) vs. Harley King (1-1), and Tyrell Giselbrecht (1-1) vs. Caleb Ermine (0-1).
