EDMONTON — One of the most anticipated rematches in Canadian MMA history is slated for #Unified26 on March 4 in Edmonton, as heavyweight sluggers Tim Hague and Tanner Boser are set to collide for the second time.

Hague, a five-time UFC veteran, dethroned Boser, who’s widely regarded as Canada’s top young heavyweight, with a single punch last March in Edmonton, in a bout that saw the #UnifiedMMA Heavyweight Championship change hands.

The winner of this bout will take on current Unified MMA Heavyweight Champion Tony Lopez at #Unified27, May 13 in Edmonton. But before that, both Hague and Boser are chomping at the bit to return to action in the Unified MMA cage.

“Fans can expect an epic battle between two in-shape heavyweights who really don’t want to lose to one another,” Hague says. “We have a long time to prepare, and it will be Fight of the Night, easily. Casual fans want to see the big boys get at it, and I think we’ll steal the show.”

Boser, meanwhile, is a man of few words heading into the rematch with Hague, who’s so far the only man to beat the highly touted heavyweight up-and-comer.

“It’s a chance to avenge my only loss, so of course I’m hungry for it,” the Hayabusa Training Centre powerhouse says, adding, “I (expletive) up, but it won’t happen again. I’m going to win this time.”

In other Unified MMA 26 action, former champion Parwez Ghulam and Matt Spisak will clash for the Unified MMA Featherweight Championship. Also, lightweights Garrett Nybakken and Justin Nanaquawetung will lock horns, while undefeated welterweight Pat Pytlik will welcome Corey Atkinson back to the Unified MMA cage.
