Titan Fighting Championship held weigh-ins today in anticipation of tomorrow night’s Titan FC 58 fight card which will be broadcast live on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8 pm ET.
The December 20 fight card will be held at Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is headlined by a bantamweight title bout between defending champion Irwin Rivera, and challenger Danny Sabatello.
The title was recently vacated by then champion Rudson Caliocane who is recovering from a medical condition. Caliocane was injured severely injured while taking a fight with another promotion in his native country of Brazil.
Rivera won the interim title title with a liver kick over Matt Wagy earlier this year. When Caliocane forfeited his title, Rivera was bumped up to the official title holder.
In the Titan FC 58 co-main event, professional boxer Ulysses Diaz will make the crossover to mixed martial arts. He brings with him an outstanding boxing record of 12-1 with 11 wins by knockout.
Mohammed Usman, brother to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, returns to the Titan FC cage. “The Motor” recently picked up a first round knockout win over Alexis Garcia, his second victory under the Titan FC banner this year. Usman will welcome Reggie Cato, a native of Oklahoma, to Titan Fighting Championship when these two heavyweights collide on the event’s main card.
With close to 50 fights between them, Cristian Torres (14-10) and Askar Mozharov (18-7) will face off at 205-pounds to open up the main card on UFC Fight Pass.
