EDMONTON — Teddy Ash’s next fight is going to be the biggest of his career.

At #Unified29 on December 16 in Edmonton, the red-hot 185-pound powerhouse will throw down with a to-be-determined opponent for the #UnifiedMMA Middleweight Championship.

“This is a huge opportunity, but it’s going to be business as usual when the cage door locks,” says Ash, a Fort McMurray/Edmonton brawler who’s coming off back-to-back, first-round stoppages.

“There’s added pressure, sure, but it’s more added motivation. I’m excited and training hard to rise to the occasion.”

Unbeaten as an amateur, Ash boasts an impressive 6-2 record as a professional, with one of his losses coming versus UFC middleweight Adam Hunter.

“I’d like to have a good fight. I’m always trying to challenge myself with the toughest opponent I can,” Ash says.

“I’m working as hard as I can, and I don’t want to work my (expletive) off for something that’s going to come easy. I want to take home the belt after having the Fight of the Night.”

Unified MMA 29 on December 16 in Edmonton will also feature the highly anticipated Lightweight Championship grudge rematch between Garret Nybakken and Aaron Bosiak, as well as a battle between top Canadian lightweights Mike Scarcello and Matt DesRoches, and the returns of Roger Alves, Menad Abella and Christian Larsen.
