In a night that saw only 2 main card fighters receive heralded TFC stoppage bonus checks, Titan 28 was still an event to witness.
In the opening affair former UFC veteran “The Kid” Alvin Robinson (13-8) was thoroughly dominated by Gleristone Santos (26-4) who won by TKO coming with 9 seconds to spare in the 2nd round. Santos has now won 8 in a row and has established himself as a threat to the TFC 145 pound division.
Following the first bout, welterweight Brian Foster (22-6) extended his 4 fight winning streak by coming back from a no-call low-blow from Gilbert Smith (8-3) and walking away from the contest with his hand raised via unanimous decision.
In my personal pick for “show stealer” the Ninja was able to outlast The Machine when the judges sided with Daniel Roberts (15-5) over Brock Jardine (9-4) in their welterweight affair via split decision. The men with the score cards tallied the bout (29-28) for Brock, then (29-28) and (30-27) for Roberts, giving Daniel his 3rd victory in 4 fights.
The heavyweight offering of the card featured “The Big TIcket” Walt Harris (6-3) punching his ticket and clocking into the Titan Fighting heavyweight division by clocking out D.J Linderman (15-8) in the form of utilizing an outstretched jab to put “Da Protege” away via spring action-ed left hand at 4:12 of the opening frame.
The Co-Main event saw Dave “Pee-Wee” Herman (22-6) snap a 4 fight losing streak by pumping the breaks on a 4 fight winning streak of his opponent Kalib Starnes (16-9). Herman utilized a superior striking attack that left Starnes looking for an answer and forced him to drop his hands and a unanimous decision loss in the process.
Then to cap the night off, the main event played host to another winning streak extended and another thwarted.
“The Noodle” Raphael Davis (13-3) couldn’t limp away for a fourth straight win after Jason Brilz (22-5) grabbed his by way of split decision in a sea-saw battle of 205 pounders. One judge scored the contest (29-28) for Davis while the other two saw it the opposite at (29-28) for Jason, giving him his 4th straight victory since exiting the octagon and his first since entering the hexagon.
