On Friday, Sept. 26, Titan FC hosted its 30th event from the Cedar Park Center in Cedar Park, Texas
In the night’s main event, a pair of UFC veterans squared off as light heavyweights Vinny Magalhaes and Jason Brilz battled for the promotion’s inaugural 205-pound belt. Magalhaes saw his UFC run end last fall, but rebounded with the ninth submission win of his career in July. The 30-year-old made his promotional debut. Brilz, meanwhile, rode a four-fight winning streak into the title affair. The 39-year-old edged Raphael Davis at Titan FC 28 earlier this year.
The co-main event of the event featured bantamweights Anthony Gutierrez and Walel Watson. The 23-year-old Gutierrez put his unfortunate experience on The Ultimate Fighter in the rearview mirror in February with a 59-second submission of Charlie DuBray. Watson had gone 3-2 since his UFC release, most recently scoring a third-round finish of William Joplin at Titan FC 28 in May.
The 11-fight event kicked off with two un-aired preliminary card bouts at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional prelims streamed live on CBSSportsNetwork.com at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing live on the CBS Sports Network at 10 p.m. ET.
