Titan FC has moved it’s date, start time and location as well as added a few more matches to an already stacked card.
The event was formally supposed to go down April 25 in Kansas City, but just like a kid waiting on Christmas, fans will have to check their watches for a little under a month longer.
It will now take place on May 16 at the First Council Casino Hotel in Newkirk, OK, with the main event still being Jason Brilz vs. Rapheal Davis and the Co-Main event being Kalib Starnes vs Dave Herman.
Added to the event is a monster heavyweight bout between Walt Harris and DJ Linderman and a welterweight showdown featuring Gilbert Smith taking on Brian Foster.
These two fights makes six total for the main card.
The postponement was explained by Jeff Aronson, President of Titan FC:
“The postponement was three fold: 1. I refused to put out a subpar card and with three more fighters getting injured ths weekend, I needed more time to make the card up to our standards. 2. We are doing a 2.5 hour show with 6 televised fights. CBSSports.com needed a couple more weeks to integrate Titan FC into their system. This now enables Titan to reach a massive audience for our live stream both national and international.”
In just over a month’s time all fans, both foreign and domestic can enjoy the next offering from the Titan universe.
As well as shifting around the main card, Titan FC has also announced an exclusive partnership with Fight Services to coordinate their events, beginning with Titan FC 28.
“Titan FC is a powerhouse in the mixed martial arts industry and I am overjoyed to bring my talents to their extraordinary team,” said Rhett Butler, Fight Services Founder and Chief Coordinator. “I have known the executive branch of Titan FC for many years via my past experience with various fight promotions and I’m truly blessed to have them place the logistical methodology in our hands. We will maintain and execute the vision of Jeff Aronson with pleasure and hope the fans experience the very best fights that the sport has to offer from Titan FC.”
