Former Champs Ash and Dewsbery Headline Unified 39

By:

EDMONTON — Teddy Ash and Brandt Dewsbery lock horns in a battle of former Unified MMA champions in the main event of Unified MMA 39 on December 6 at River Cree Resort & Casino in Edmonton.

Ash returns to action after fighting for a UFC contract on Dana White’s Contender Series. He previously held the Unified Middleweight and Light-Heavyweight titles.

“I’m really happy and excited to share the cage with a highly skilled opponent like Brandt,” says Ash (14-5). “Every time you fight a tough opponent like him, you get that much better, and I’m pumped to rise to the occasion.”

Replies Dewsbery (15-3-1), “It’s a tough fight against a No. 1-ranked fighter who’s been super active, and I’ve been on the sideline for a while. He floats between 185 and 205,and I’m going to have to eat like a mule to stay at 185 pounds. There’s nothing easy about this fight. I have six weeks to prepare after being out for four years against a game opponent in his hometown. Has to be worth it.”

    Great fight. Anyone know why Dewsberry has been inactive? Seemed like he was a win or two away from the big show before he stepped out of the cage.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 3

    I know he got married and had baby a couple years ago… I’m sure that probably contributed to the hiatus, I’m sure if he got a couple wins he would be right back in the hunt for a UFC contract!

    Well-loved! Thumb up 13 Thumb down 2
