Rick Hawn Signs with Titan FC

Olympic judoka and former Bellator fighter Rick Hawn has signed with Titan FC.

Hawn (18-4) went 10 and 4 in Bellator, losing his last two fights before being cut.

Massachusetts native Hawn will make his Titan FC debut at Titan 32 on Dec. 19 at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, however his opponent is still to be determined.

In 1996, after graduating from high school, Hawn qualified to live at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. There he trained judo for eight years and ultimately qualified for the 2004 Olympic Games. At the Games in 2004, Hawn went 2-2 and finished in 9th place. Hawn also won numerous medals at U.S. national championships and two medals at the Pan American Games.

After the 2004 games, Hawn moved to Boston to train with bronze medalist Jimmy Pedro. However, Hawn failed to make the 2008 Olympic judo team. Soon after, Hawn began training for a career in mixed martial arts.

Titan 32 will be headlined by Dave Herman vs. Jon Madsen for the Titan FC heavyweight title, and will air live on CBS Sports Network.
