Titan Fighting Championships, Brett Johns

Titan Fighting Championship is moving to UFC Fight Pass.

Jeff Aronson, Titan FC CEO and Lex McMahon, Titan FC COO announced on MMA Fighting’s The MMA Hour; hosted by Ariel Helwani, that the promotion have inked a long term deal that will see Titan FC events broadcast live on the UFC’s streaming service.

The deal kicks off with Titan FC 34, which takes place July 18 in Montreal, headlined by a lightweight title fight: Pat Healy (31-20) vs. Mike Ricci (10-4) and will look to showcase eight to ten live events per year.

In addition to this, Titan Fighting Championship’s 33 event archive will be added to UFC Fight Pass, which joins the likes of: Cage Rage, UCMMA and Pancrase. 

It was also announced that current Titan FC bantamweight champion,  Brett “The Pikey” Johns will defend his championship against Anthony “Sharkbait” Gutierrez (6-1) at Titan FC 34.

Johns (11-0) won the vacant title against Walel Watson at Titan FC 33 in Kansas, March 20. Johns scored a second round rear naked choke win to capture the 135lb title, and solidify his status as the UK’s number one prospect.

Gutierrez, 34, is a Titan FC veteran, having competed all seven of his professional bouts under the banner. His only loss came to Watson, the former number one contender.

More information on the deal is expected to surface in the coming days.
