MMA in the Great White North has experienced a changing of the guard in recent years thanks to GSP passing the torch to the next generation of Canadian youth. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a protector of the polar den ready to rise the heat index to melting point for Unified MMA at Unified MMA 56 on March 22 from River Cree Resort and Casino. A professional mixed martial artist since November 2019 and representing Shaved Bears MMA, Harley King owns a 3-2 record in five bouts comprised of two knockouts and one decision. Both of his finishes during his career in the professional MMA ranks have been inside of two rounds. King has gone to the scorecards a single time over the course of his career as a professional mixed martial artist sweeping them clean across the board on that occasion. He is 2-1 under the Unified MMA banner with one finish in three appearances with the organization. King has spent his entire professional career in his home nation of Canada. He has one first-round finish under his belt to go alongside a single second-round finish through five professional appearances so far.
In his professional MMA debut at Havoc Fighting Championship 14, he defeated Ryan Williams via technical knockout in the second round. King defeated Izzudeen Atmeh via knockout in round one in his promotional debut with United MMA at Unified MMA 45 to earn his second knockout win as a professional. Then at Unified MMA 48, he defeated Devon Lozej via unanimous decision. The victory secured King the first decision win of his professional career in addition to back-to-back victories with Unified MMA. He also picked up his third win overall as a professional in the process. The colder it gets, the tighter King’s claws can seize victory once he sees fear in a foe’s eyes!
