The hits keep coming for Titan FC. The scheduled headliner of Titan FC 31 was scrapped on the day of the event after Mike Ricci failed to make weight and his opponent Yoshiyuki Yoshida bailed on the fight. Yoshida has since been released by the company citing contractual violations.
Reports are coming in now that the promotion is postponing Titan FC 32 that was scheduled for November 20th and it will now take place on December 19 in Lowell, Mass. The blame is being place on unforeseen circumstances but those haven’t been shared as of yet. The main event was slated to be a heavyweight scrap between Dave Herman and Jon Madsen. That fight is still going to take place on the re-scheduled event.
This setback marks the fourth postponement for the company. Titan FC 25 was moved around twice due to bad weather and Titan FC 28 was pushed back in order for the company to strengthen the fight card.
Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson told MMAJunkie.com “When I got into this business, it was to bring something new and different to the MMA landscape. If the fights fans want to see don’t materialize, we vow to press forward to make sure the future is ever brighter.”
Titan FC airs on CBSSports Network and as of now are scheduled for the December 19th event as well as a January 23rd event in Florida.
