Bosiak, Collier will lock horns at #Unified25

Nov 10, 2015

EDMONTON — Don’t be surprised if Aaron Bosiak and Ty Collier don’t touch gloves before their highly anticipated lightweight clash at #Unified25, December 18 in Edmonton.

The two 155-pound fighters just don’t seem to like each other.

“I don’t know a ton about him, but I’m not a big fan of the people who opened his gym (Blacksheep MMA) — and that’s one of the reasons why I asked to fight him,” says Bosiak, a Complete Fitness and Martial Arts fighter who’s notched early stoppage wins in his three professional outings.

“It started in February when their coach beat one of my teammates,” the St. Albert product adds. “He won, so good on him — I can’t take that away from him. But the way he handled himself after the win was completely classless, unprofessional, and just disrespectful. When you run into somebody’s corner, flip them off and chirp like you’re the man, and the two guys in the corner can’t fight you because they’re under contract with the UFC, it’s just disrespectful.

“I said, ‘I don’t care who I have to fight out of that gym,’ but somebody’s getting f—-d up if I fight somebody out of Blacksheep.”

Enter Blacksheep part-owner Collier, who’s scored early TKO wins in his two trips to the #UnifiedMMA cage and is hungry to move a step closer to the UFC’s Octagon.

“At Blacksheep, we could really care less about other gyms. We focus on what we do at our gym,” Collier says, adding, “It’s business as usual, but I love the back-and-forth between the two gyms. It just means there will be more people following me and seeing what I wanna do when I step into the cage. I’m going to come out, and I’m going to win.”

Bosiak, naturally, has a different opinion.

“This isn’t going to the judges. I guarantee you it won’t go to the judges,” Bosiak offers, smiling. “I don’t think it’s going to get out of the first round, and I’m not going to take a step backwards.”

Counters Collier, “I’m going to leave everything I’ve got in the cage, and hopefully my opponent does too. But I’m going to finish him and prove to everyone who the better fighter is.”
