Titan FC 33 Full Results: Four New Champions including welsh fighter Brett Johns

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.

Dave Herman’s Wife Posts Video of his Arrest. Sets Record Straight.

In the early hours of Tuesday 20th January 2015, UFC and Bellator MMA veteran Dave Herman [22-6] who most recently competed for Titan FC, was arrested for leading a police chase in Indiana.

Charges were filed by Dekalb County Sheriff Department and states Herman was ‘Speeding without his lights on and did not immediately pull over. Once he did stop, he approached the officers and forced them to use a taser’.

The charges Herman faces include resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, battery against law enforcement and neglect of a dependent.

Now this is where Herman’s wife [Madeleine] steps in, who filmed a good portion of what happened.
