Titan Fighting Championships hosts its final event of the year in Lowell, Massachusetts, and a vacant featherweight belt is on the line. Former UFC fighter and TUF 14 alumnus Steven Siler makes his Titan FC debut against Bellator veteran Desmond Green, who is coming off a quick and dominant knockout win over Miguel Torres. In the co-main event, Rick Hawn battles Carlo Prater in a battle of lightweight veterans.
Siler's UFC career came to an end following a decision defeat (and his 3rd loss in a row) to Noad Lahat in July. His career highlights include a KO win over Mike Brown, as well as a minor upset victory over Cole Miller in 2012. Green competed in multiple Bellator featherweight tournaments, but was surprisingly released after dropping the season 10 final to Daniel Weichel. Titan scooped him up and he immediately impressed with his KO of Torres. It should be noted that Green originally missed weight for this contest, but cut off part of his hair to drop the .5 lb. Despite the Torres showing, Green's fights generally go the distance, with 9 of his 13 wins going to the scorecards. Neither Siler nor Green have ever gone 5 rounds before, but that streak could be broken tonight.
