Titan FC signs former UFC, Bellator welterweight Ben Saunders

Bellator

Welterweight Ben "Killa B" Saunders has signed an exclusive contract with Titan Fighting Championships.

Having parted ways with Bellator, Ben Saunders is returning to action in Titan Fighting Championships.

The promotion announced today that the welterweight veteran has joined their roster on a multi-fight deal, which company president and CEO Jeff Aronson discussed with MMA Fighting:

"He will debut in a monster fight," Aronson told MMAFighting.com. "I can't express how excited I am to get this signing done. Ben is the best welterweight free agent out there and the fans have been all over me to get it done, so in Titan fashion #FansFightersFirst."

Saunders (16-6-2) fought 7 times in the UFC, compiling a 4-3 record before his 2010 release after losing to Dennis Hallman. The highlights of Saunders' UFC career included a barrage of knees vs. Brandon Wolff that left Wolff with a blimp-sized forehead, as well as becoming the first man to KO Marcus Davis (also with a brutal knee attack). Saunders later signed with Bellator, where he twice made the welterweight tournament final, but fell short both times against current champion Douglas Lima.

The 31-year-old is expected to make his promotional debut on the TitanFC 29 card, which is slated for either late May or early June. It's a great signing for Titan FC, who acquire an exciting and quality fighter who is just about always entertaining and frequently produces violent finishes. You can also consider this a potential route back to the UFC for Saunders, who is in an organization that is willing to let its fighters go to the UFC if they come calling, and with a 7-3 post-UFC record combined with whatever he can do in TItan, there's a chance that "Killa B" will be back in the Octagon somewhere down the road.

But for now, Saunders is a Titan FC fighter, and joins a good roster that includes other notable welterweights Matt Riddle, Jose Landi-Jons, Brock Jardine, and Daniel Roberts.
