Two Titan FC title fights scheduled for later this year

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Titan FC has two title fights scheduled for the coming months.

Ben Saunders will meet Matt Riddle for the promotion's vacant welterweight crown on August 22 at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., while Jason Brilz vs. Vinny Magalhaes will compete for the inaugural light heavyweight title on Sept. 26 at the Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park, TX. MMAFighting.com was informed of both matchups by sources close to the promotion.

Saunders (16-6-2), a former UFC and Bellator veteran, will be making his Titan FC debut. He most recently lost via knockout to Douglas Lima in the Bellator season 8 welterweight tournament final in Sept. 2013.

Riddle (8-3, 2 NC) was successful in his Titan FC debut in February when he submitted Michael Kuiper via second-round submission. That was the first pro fight of his career outside the UFC.

As for the light heavyweights, Brilz (22-5-1) beat Raphael Davis via split decision in his Titan FC debut last month, while Magalhaes (10-7, 1 NC) will be making his first appearance since getting knocked out in 14 seconds by Anthony Perosh at UFC 163 in Aug. 2013.

Both events are scheduled to air on CBS Sports Network.
