Titan Fighting has been making waves over the last several weeks, especially with new owner, Jeff Aronson breathing new life into the organization. Pieces of gold are being dropped all along the way leading into their February 28th fight card.
A new organization owner, Stephan Bonnar being part of commentary team and lots of recognizable names are just the tip of the iceberg, though. There are also rumblings of bonuses for every fighter that gets a finish, something fight fans have been wanting for ages. Talk about a breeding ground for killers.
Something else worth noting is that I received a list of names a few hours ago from a trusted source; a listing of talent that has recently been signed to multi-fight contracts with Titan Fighting. The listing is as follows:
Quarry tells how UFC had lawyers target charities
Former UFC title contender and TUF 1 competitor, Nate Quarry gave his thoughts on the unfair structure of the UFC’s contracts, fighter pay, UFC uniforms and more.
At 125 lbs
At 135 lbs
Luis Rafael Laurentino
At 145 lbs
At 155 lbs
At 170 lbs
Jose "Pele" Landi-Jons
NOTE: I have been informed that Chase Hackett is not signed to Titan. Apparently there were some talks, but nothing came to fruition. My apologies on the error. To make it up to ya, I have been told that Dave Herman will be facing D.J. Linderman for their April card.
This list, if you'll note, is for welterweight and below. Some of the signings have already been announced, but the majority have not. I think it's safe to say Titan FC will be putting on some great future cards and providing fans with another option to get their MMA fix, and fighters with another avenue to keep earning a living within the sport. I'll keep our readers posted on new signings as they develop.
