EDMONTON — Mike Scarcello will enter the Unified MMA cage for the 10th time against his toughest challenge yet, The Ultimate Fighter winner Efrain Escudero, at Unified MMA 30 on March 17 in Edmonton.

Unified MMA 30 will also include a Lightweight Championship bout between Garret Nybakken and challenger Tristan Connelly, a Light-Heavyweight Championship bout between challengers Jared McComb and Grayson Wells, as well as bout between UFC vet Shane Campbell and Jose Rodriguez, former Middleweight Championship contender Teddy Ash and Jeff Porter, a match between bantamweights Michael Hay and Rick Pfiefer, and a lightweight fight between Justin Nanaquawetung and Neal Anderson.
