EDMONTON – Christian Larsen will defend his Unified MMA Heavyweight Championship against UFC vet Rashad “Daywalker” Coulter at Unified 45 on May 27 at River Cree Resort & Casino in Enoch, AB, LIVE on UFC Fight Pass.

Larsen will try to improve to 7-2 in his second title defense. Widely regarded as the top heavyweight prospect in Canada, Larsen has finished five of his six opponents in the first round, and the Shaved Bears MMA product is yet to see a third round in his impressive career.
