“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.
