Titan FC Sets Up Two World Title Matches With Ex-UFC Fighters

Vinny Magalhaes

Titan Fighting Championship has set dates for two future cards, heading to North Carolina and Texas later this year.

Titan FC 29 will go down August 22 from the Crown Coliseum in Fayettville and feature Matthew Riddle vs. Ben Saunders for the welterweight title, while Titan FC 30 is set for September 26 from Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park.

That card will see Vinny Magalhaes meet Jason Brilz for the middleweight title.

Saunders (16-6-2) is a veteran of both the UFC and Bellator cages, while Riddle (8-3) also fought for the UFC. His win earlier this year for Titan FC over Michael Kuiper marked the first time he’s competed outside of the Octagon.

Magalhaes (10-7) was a runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter, while Brilz (22-5-1) also fought for the UFC. He scored a win over Raphael Davis in his most recent fight.

One other announced fight will feature bantamweights Walel Watson and Anthony Gutierrez in action and is set for Titan FC 30.

More bouts are expected to be announced soon, and both main cards will air on CBS Sports Network.
