Earlier this month it was announced that Jose “Shorty” Torres would be defending one of his two Titan Fighting Championship titles at Titan FC 46 on November 17.
Torres (5-0) was supposed to defend his flyweight title against Gustavo Eddy Balart on the card, but the matchup was “put on hold,” Titan FC COO Lex McMahon said. Instead Torres will put the bantamweight belt on the line instead.
“Shorty” won the bantamweight title from then champion Farkhad Sharipov via unanimous decision in May at Titan FC 44.
DeJesus (7-2) has won three in a row, most recently a first-round submission win over Chino Duran at Titan 45 in August. DeJesus, 25, fights out of American Top Team.
Also on the card, Michael Cora will face Isidro Rodriguez in a welterweight bout, Balart will take on Marcelo Castaneda at 125 pounds, Jorge Calvo meets Juan Puerta in a flyweight fight, McMahon said.
Other fights were also announced today. See below.
