Valimaki Set for Clash with Ash at Unified 32


Unified MMA officials announced a new Light-Heavyweight fight today pitting UFC veteran Victor Valimaki against Teddy Ash at Unified MMA 32 on September 16 in Edmonton.

Victor Valimaki (18-10) returns to the cage for the first time in over two years where he looks to erase the memory of two straight losses to Tanner Boser and Jeremy Osheim. Since 2010 Valimaki has fought only four times, posting a 2-2 record and having no less than nine fights fall through for one reason or another. At his prime Valimaki was one of the top fighters in Canada and will look to regain his form at Unified 32. Valimaki holds career wins over the likes of Jason Day, Dan Severn, Nick Hinchcliffe and Tim Chemelli among others.

Teddy Ash (8-3) will look for his signature win with his biggest name opponent to date. After a 3-0 start to his MMA career on the amateur circuit, Ash turned pro and rattled off four more wins before hitting a bit of a rough patch losing three of his next five outings to high end competition. Ash righted the ship with a pair of impressive wins over Jeff Porter and Nick Campbell and looks to make it three in a row to vault himself into title contention.

Unified MMA 32 goes down September 29 from The Royal Palace in Edmonton, Alberta. In the main event Shane Campbell defends the Lightweight Title against Mike Scarcello. Also on the card Cody Krahn returns to the cage against Jeff Porter at Middleweight while Behrang Yousefi and Clay Dixon are set for a Featherweight grudge match. Pat Pytlik looks to stay undefeated against Yannick Pare.
