Park, Doll collide for the crown at Unified 38

Jul 29, 2019

EDMONTON — Graham Park and Sheldon Doll throw down for the vacant Unified MMA Light-Heavyweight Championship at Unified 38 on Sept. 27 at River Cree Resort & Casino.

Park is 6-2 as a pro, with all of his wins coming via first-round finish. Doll, meanwhile, is 7-3 with five straight victories recorded in the first round. Both fighters are eager to stake their claim as Canada’s top 205-pound contender with a decisive win this fall.

“This is a really big opportunity,” says Park, a winner of three straight via first-round finish. “I’ve been around this organization for a long time, really since the beginning. To work my way up from the bottom to a title shot is really special and something I don’t take for granted. I’m ready to rise to the occasion and bring the belt home.”

But Doll says he isn’t one to be played with.

“Fighting for the Unified MMA Light-Heavyweight Championship is an honour,” he says. “Winning this title is going to open a ton of doors for me to compete on the global stage, and I’m not going to give up those opportunities without a fight.”

This belt was previously held by Teddy Ash, who vacated the championship upon accepting a bout on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series on UFC Fight Pass.

Unified 38 also includes Christian Larsen versus Jared Kilkenny in a rematch for the Unified MMA Heavyweight Championship, and KB Bhullar will be fighting UFC vet Matt Dwyer for the vacant Unified MMA Middleweight Championship.
