Titan Fighting Championships held their thirty-third event last night (or early hours of the morning if you were watching in the UK), in Alabama, for their biggest event to date; whilst I would guarantee the majority of fans would have been looking at the Main Card event, for which had 3 Title fights by the way of former Bellator featherweight contender and Titan FC featherweight champion Desmond Green against Strikeforce vet and one-time UFC competitor Kurt Holobaugh, Pat Healy faced Kurt Kinser for the lightweight belt and Jon Madsen faced Chase Gormley for the heavyweight title belt.
I can assure you, it would be the UK fans who were more interested in the welsh super star Brett ‘The Pikey’ Johns, who was facing Walel Watson for the Vacant Bantamweight Title which was taking place on the aired portion of the Prelim Card.
The non-title matchup that opened up the main card was TUF 18’s Cody Bollinger against New York prospect Andre Harrison in the featherweight division.
