EDMONTON — Denny Houle and Nick Campbell will lock horns at #Unified28 for the vacant #UnifiedMMA Light-Heavyweight Championship at Royal Palace in Edmonton on September 30.

Houle, a product of Edmonton, is undefeated through his first five fights, with all of his wins coming via first-round stoppage. Campbell, meanwhile, is coming off back-to-back, first-round wins and has long been regarded as one of Canada’s most dangerous 205-pound fighters.

Both heavy-handed light-heavyweights are proud of their respective resume — but both are hungry to add the Unified MMA Light-Heavyweight Championship belt to their collection.

“This is the biggest opportunity of my career,” says Houle, a three-time Unified MMA veteran, “and I can’t even describe how it will feel to have that belt wrapped around my waist.”

But standing in Houle’s way is Campbell, a Saskatoon-born Calgary fighter who’s nine wins have all come by stoppage.

“Denny is gonna have some hands on him and he’s gonna be tough, but he’s not gonna have what it takes to beat me … The only chance Denny has of beating me is catching me off guard,” the four-time Unified MMA vet says, adding, “I’m gonna get that light-heavyweight strap and show everyone who’s been sleeping on me that I’m among the best in Canada.”

Unified 28, going down September 30 in Edmonton, will be headlined by Canada’s top heavyweight Tanner Boser, Parwez Ghulam, Roger Alves, Nick Hrabec and Gurjeet Bilkhu.
