Unified MMA returns to GFL on December 19 with “Unified MMA 21” from the Sultan Banquet Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This loaded card featured several up and coming prospects from the Great White North as well as several seasoned veterans.
In the main event, Matthew Spisak (7-5) fights Aaron Armstrong (5-3) in a #1 Contender bout. Spisak is on a 3 fight winning streak and 2 have come via stoppage. Look for Spisak to try to get the fight to the mat where he can use his grappling. Spisak is an active grappler, always looking for an avenue to lock on a choke or armbar. Armstrong won his last fight via rear naked choke and is also quite competent on the mat with submissions. Both fighters also have solid striking skills and if the ground game is a draw, these two could put on a great show with their fists, elbows, shins and knees. The winner of this bout gets a title shot, so there is a lot on the line. Look for both men to come out with their guns blazing.
In the co-main event, Merrick Duggan (7-2) battles Corey Atkinson (3-3). Duggan is a Unified MMA vet and this will be his ninth fight with the promotion. He has spent his entire career with one organization and has built a great fanbase. Duggan has only been to decision once and brings a high octane fighting style where he has been able to stop 6 of his 7 opponents. Duggan is extremely well-rounded and has a game that presents problems for everyone he faces. Atkinson is a durable fighter who will take on anyone. Look for Atkinson to try and push the pace early in the first round as he throws hands or goes for a takedown. This could be fight of the night.
In other action, Ryan Rother (5-5) scraps with Aaron Shymr (4-4). Rother fought his last fight for a title and is looking to climb the ladder for another title shot. A highlight reel performance will get him that opportunity sooner than later. Rother has 4 wins via KO or TKO and his fifth win via submission. Don’t blink when Rother gets in the cage because his high risk-high reward style makes for exciting matchups. Shymr is the same type of fighter as Rother. Shymer is a heavy handed fighter who can end the fight with one punch. Expect fireworks from these two.
