Titan FC 30 results: Vinny Magalhaes taps Jason Brilz, wins light heavyweight title

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Vinny Magalhaes predicted to win his Titan FC debut inside the first three rounds, but he just missed his prediction by 36 seconds.

Magalhaes, a former M-1 Global light heavyweight champion, claimed the Titan FC 205-pound championship on Friday night in Cedar Park, Texas, with a fourth-round submission against Jason Brilz.

After a back-and-fourth battle, the Brazilian, a multiple-time jiu-jitsu and ADCC champion, rocked Brilz with a right high kick before trapping the fellow UFC veteran with a guillotine to win the vacant light heavyweight title 36 seconds into  the fourth round.

In the co-main event, Walel Watson made quick work of then undefeated bantamweight Anthony Gutierrez. With little over the 3-minute mark, the former UFC fighter improved his MMA record to 13-7 with a triangle choke. "The Gazelle" is now 2-0 under the Titan FC banner with a pair of submission victories.

Brazilian Top Team products Gleristone Santos and Pedro Nobre were also victorious on the card. Santos, a 27-4 featherweight prospect, defeated Robert Washington via split decision. At 2-0 in Titan FC, he could fight for the 145-pound title next. Nobre, a former UFC fighter, scored a split decision win over Nick Honstein.
