Titan Fighting Championships will make their inaugural debut on UFC Fight Pass with their presentation Titan FC: 34 which includes an unprecedented 4 Championship bouts. One man looking to make his way into the Titan 135 pound title picture is Andrew Whitney.
Andrew is 2-1 when fighting under the Titan banner and feels his fight Saturday night against William Joplin (12-10) is his biggest fight to date.
“It’s an honor to be on UFC Fight Pass and with Titan FC again, it is a blessing really. It’s kind of like the minor leagues and the next step is the big show. Every next fight to me is the biggest fight of my career. Any fight can surprise you and become a set back if you aren’t ready. However this fight is also going to be on Fight Pass so hands down this is the biggest fight of my career.”
Whitney knows Joplin’s camp well and has trained in all areas in anticipation of what Joplin and his trainer, UFC Fighter James Krause have up their sleeves. He’s been with specialists after ending his time with ATT.
“I train everything, I’m not concerned on anything too special. I know he’s going to want to stand up then go to the ground. I’ve been cross training at a couple of gyms. I’ve got a guy named Troy, from Jamaica and he has put a ton of time into me. He’s helped me evolve to a different level mentally in my career. I love American Top Team and always will, I have no hard feelings toward them, they’re a great gym. But right now I have to do what’s best for me. James Krause thinks he’s got me figured out, haha, those guys are my boys but I have to prove them wrong.”
Whitney wants to take care of business this Saturday night, put Joplin away and move forward.
“End of the day a fight is a fight, this isn’t the old Titan format, this is the first time under the new fight format. William will come to fight me and I’ll be ready, I’m looking for the best William Joplin ever. However I’m going to be gunning for a knockout, I want to make a statement and be happy with it.”
