Titan Fighting Championship will hold Titan FC 73 at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami, Florida this Friday, December 17th. The event’s main card is scheduled to be broadcast live on UFC Fight Pass. The card currently hosts 11 pro MMA bouts and will be headlined by two Titan FC championship fights.
“We are excited to announce a highly anticipated event capped off with two title fights and an undercard made up of several household names in the Titan FC community,” said Lex McMahon, Titan FC COO.
Headlining the fight card will be top 170lb prospect and Titan FC welterweight champion, Dilano Taylor (6-1), and tenured MMA veteran, Marcus Edwards (13-5).
This bout is set to be Taylor’s first promotional title defense as he will square off with a man who has shared the cage with Justin Gaethje, Dakota Cochrane and Efrain Escudero.
In the card’s co-main event, undefeated bantamweight prospect out of MMA Masters, Alberto Montes (5-0), takes on St. Charles MMA product, Ira Lukowsky (2-0) for the vacant Titan FC bantamweight strap.
Montes is known as a quality prospect who was scheduled to appear on this past season of Dana White’s Contender Series however, he was forced out due to visa issues.
