Titan Fighting Championships 27: Ricci vs. Gurgel live discussion thread

Titan FC

Discuss the entire Titan FC 27 card here on Bloody Elbow, starting tonight at 10:30 PM ET/7:30 PM PT.

Do you want to test out your MMA fan endurance? The main card of Bellator 110 starts tonight at 9 PM ET on Spike TV. After that, Titan Fighting Championships kicks off a new era on CBS Sports Network with two streamed prelim bouts at 10:30 PM ET before a five-fight main card at 11:30 PM ET. The show should wrap up at around 2 AM ET or so, which gives you a few hours worth of sleep so you can wake up and watch the TUF China Finale prelims at 6:20 AM ET on Fight Pass. Sounds fun, doesn't it?

This post is dedicated to discussing Titan Fighting Championships 27, which is headlined by TUF 16 runner-up Mike Ricci against Jorge Gurgel. Ex-UFC fighter Matt Riddle and Michael Kuiper are in the co-main event, plus TUF 18s Anthony Gutierrez fights for the first time since he was kicked off the show for failing to make weight.

You can watch the preliminary card stream on CBS Sports Network's website. The whole event will be commentated on at cageside by Tony Luftman, Stephan Bonnar, and Firas Zahabi.

Before indulging on the fights, you can take a look at Steph Daniels' interviews with several Titan FC names from earlier this week.

Kansas City plays host to tonight's card, and it should be a good one. Remember that each fighter who wins by KO or submission gets a "finish bonus", so let's see who'll come away with extra money.
