Anthony "Rumble" Johnson Signed to TITAN FC | Debut Set For May


Titan Fighting Championship has revealed that Titan Fighting 22 will take place Friday, May 25 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City and in an exclusive interview today with Ariel Helwani on “The MMA Hour,” the devastating knockout artist and former UFC middleweight Anthony “Rumble” Johnson announced that he would headline the card.

“I’m back, and I’m fighting May 25 with Titan Fighting Championship, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to headline this event for all the fans in Kansas City and watching that night live on HDNet,” said Johnson. “I am so pumped to be fighting again, and I’m ready to take on whatever 185 pounder they put in front of me.”

Titan Fighting 22 tickets go on sale Monday, March 19 with general admission priced at $35; VIP packages are available for $100 and $150. Tickets can be purchased through www.Ticketmaster.com, or by calling Ticketmaster 866-448-7849, and locally at the Memorial Hall box office.

“It’s incredible to have Rumble Johnson headlining Titan Fighting 22, and in typical Titan style, the entire card will be filled with exciting matches featuring the best up and coming fighters in the world,” said Joe Kelly, President, Titan Fighting Championship.

Johnson (10-4-0), former UFC middleweight, is ranked among the top fighters in the world, having competed in the Octagon at both 185 and 170 pounds. He has fought the who’s who in the sport including Vitor Belfort, Josh Koscheck, and Dan Hardy. He holds seven wins by KO or TKO, and all but one of his six UFC wins have come by KO/TKO. His fight on “Titan Fighting 21″ on May 25 will mark his debut with the Titan Fighting Championship organization.

“I received offers from all over the world, and after a lot of consideration, my manager Glenn Robinson and I settled on Titan because it’s a good promotion, but more importantly it’s run by really good people,” said Johnson.

Titan will announce Johnson’s opponent in the next week, and will also announce more information on the undercard in coming weeks.

    Leave it to a guy who keeps missing weight even after moving up weight classes… to join an organization named TITAN.

  6. David says:

    Weighing in at 239 pounds….Anthony “Rumble” Johnson!!!!

  7. JoeR. says:

    Damn was hoping to see him in strikeforce against jardine

  8. david says:

    he will prolly be champ of titan, these organizations love eating up ufc fighters who have been cut, cause their name has already been promoted alot better than they will ever be able to

  9. watchafightbeforecommenting says:

    He’ll smash every opponent and still not be the champ since he’ll fail to make weight…. good for that promotion though…

  10. jonsey says:

    an who the fuk is he going to fight ??? its not even fair

  11. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    He should just move to 205 and quit being a punk!

  12. Nick says:

    Well I’m pretty sure it’s an easy W for AJ.

  13. Im still annoyed with him after watchin him sit on Dan Hardy for a whole fight. If you say your gonna stand up and brawl, and beat someone like that. Atleast attempt to do it.

  14. Hi my friend! I want to say that this post is amazing, great written and come with approximately all significant infos. I’d like to see extra posts like this .
