Three titles on the line at Titan FC 41
Good news, MMA betting fans, the Mens' Featherweight, Bantamweight, and Women's Bantamweight titles are each on the line as Titan FC hits Coral Gables, Florida for it's 41st edition on September 9.
In the main event of the show, which will be broadcast exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, Carina Damm completes a trilogy with Brazilian compatriot Kalindra Faria with the Titan FC women's bantamweight title at stake.
Damm and Faria first fought in 2009, when Damm's experience (a five year pro at the time) led her to a second-round finish over a capable but inexperienced Faria. In 2013, they met a second time, with Faria this time forcing the tap in the opening round.
Today, Faria is installed as the favorite. Damm, a strong woman with an effective ground game, is 37 with 35 fights under her belt. She's dropped two of her last three to Marciea Allan and Elaine Albuquerque -- accomplished regional fighters below the pedigree of Faria, who has won back-to-back contests since running into Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Jessica Aguilar during a misguided run at 115. Count on her win coming in the first two rounds, likely via submission.
The co-main event sees one of Titan's finest products, Andrew Whitley, doing battle with Bellator veteran Farkhad Sharipov for the vacant bantamweight title.
The fighters earned this chance with wins at Aug. 5's Titan FC 41. Whitley's was a breakthrough second-round TKO over Anderson Dos Santos, while Sharipov's came as a workmanlike split-decision triumph over Bruce Lutchmedial.
If the bout goes three rounds, Sharipov is known for his ability to press through adversity to take the win. But Whitley's spectacular win over the favored Dos Santos chalks him in as champ, but he'll have to stay sharp in the late rounds and avoid takedowns to do so.
Finally, 13-0 Titan FC featherweight champion Andre Harrison makes what will probably be the final defense of his crown before signing for a move to the octagon. He takes on a noted submission specialist, Alexandre Bezerra, who is 2-0 since returning from a fifteen-month break.
Publically stating his desire to fight at the UFC's New York debut, Harrison is a fighter with a complete fighting arsenal if a lack of killer instincts. He hasn't ended a fight early since 2013, but has nonetheless fought past adept fighters like Steven Siler and Desmond Green to take lead of a second-tier promotion.
Bezerra, 28, is a BJJ black belt whose submission skills earned him a 7-2 record in Bellator. After losing his CFFC title in a rematch with hard-charging Georgian Levan Makashvili in December 2014, Bezerra took time out of the cage. A win against an unfocused Harrison isn't out of the question, and would make up for time lost. This is the fight of the night, and, like the rest of Titan FC 41's bouts, not easy for MMA betting fans to pick a winner. Check the sportsbook for current odds.
