Unified MMA just signed a massive main event for their May 11 event at the River Cree Resort and Casino. Teddy “Bear” Ash will put his four fight win streak on the line when he faces 15 time UFC veteran Matt “The Hammer” Hamill for the Light-Heavyweight Title that was recently vacated by Jared McComb who announced his retirement.

Teddy Ash enters this bout having won four straight fights including three straight finishes. Ash captured the Prestige FC Light-Heavyweight Title last weekend with a vicious TKO victory over American challenger Cameron Olson. Ash also finished Victor Valimaki and Nick Campbell following a decision win over Jeff Porter to start his win streak which was his first fight after a stint at Middleweight. Ash holds an overall pro record of 10-3 in addition to a 3-0 amateur record and has finished 11 of his 13 wins.

Matt Hamill appeared on the third season of The Ultimate Fighter winning his first fight in the house against Mike Nickles before sustaining an injury and was not able to move onto the semi-finals. Hamill went on to fight 15 times inside the Octagon compiling a 10-5 record under the Zuffa banner including wins over Tim Boetsch, Mark Munoz, Keith Jardine, Tito Ortiz, Roger Hollett and of course Hamill is the only man who holds a win over Jon Jones… okay it was a DQ win so maybe we won’t count that one. Hamill is also a proven finisher with 8 of his 12 wins by way of KO or TKO including picking up his first win in almost five years with a KO over fellow UFC veteran Luiz Cane last April.

Unified MMA 33 goes down May 11 at at the River Cree and also features a Lightweight Title fight between champion Shane Campbell and challenger Stephen Beaumont. Also announced for the card is a Lightweight bout between Behrang Yousefi and Neal Anderson, a Heavyweight battle pitting Christian Larsen against the ageless Lee Mein and a Catchweight West vs. East scrap between Garret Nybakken and Jeremy Henry. Mike Scarcello, Craig Shintani and Roger Alves are also expected for the event.
