Cage Titans returns to Plymouth Memorial Hall on Saturday, June 18th for its 29th event. At the top of the card, one of the brightest prospects in New England, Manny Bermudez, will be looking to keep his undefeated, professional record intact against the always game and former title challenger, Taylor Trahan. Overall, this is a great match-up between two guys that are submission wizards and combined over their pro and amateur careers, 8 out of Trahan’s 11 wins have come via submission and 10 out of Bermudez’s 12 wins have been via submission. For those who love the intricacies of BJJ, you are definitely in for a treat when these two enter the cage on fight night!
In other pro fight action, Joe Giannetti will take on Frank Falso. Falso is a tough brawler who has taken the past 2 years off to fill some holes in his ground game while getting rejuvenated with a new team and camp. As for Giannetti, he leaves behind his perfect record and Cage Titans amateur title to turn pro, with hopes to make a statement here in his professional debut. So on fight night, will it be Falso who shows the division he is back with vengeance or will Giannetti continue to shine and put the pro ranks on notice!?
Next up, Don Shainis will battle Jeremy Davis. Shainis is also a former Cage Titans amateur champion and after going undefeated in those ranks, he will be making his long awaited professional debut. As for Davis, the Florida native is a former amateur champion in his region as well and is 2-0 so far in his pro career, with both of those wins coming via guillotine. One thing is for sure, you can bet that both guys will be bringing everything they have on fight night because Shainis most certainly doesn’t want to start out his pro career in the loss column and Davis is not flying in to blemish his perfect record!
Then in what may be one of the more exciting fights of the night, Max Barrett takes center cage against Florida’s Tommy Mills. Mills is a former professional boxer who has transitioned nicely to MMA compiling a 2-0 record with 2 first round finishes. As for Barrett, he is a great standup fighter in his own right and turned heads in his pro debut, earlier this year, by dropping his opponent in the first round. In this match-up one thing is certain, both guys love to throw hands so it could be over quick, and don’t be surprised if it ends with one of them looking up at the ceiling!
And finally, the vacant flyweight amateur title will also be up for grabs when Miguel Trinidad and Jose Lugo fight it out for the belt. Trinidad is a submission machine and is undefeated with all his wins coming via first round guillotine chokes. His coaches have dubbed his submission ‘The Miguilotine’ and he is looking to bring the first ever Cage Titans title to his team. As for Lugo, his only loss so far was to Trinidad but since then has gone undefeated while picking up a title with another promotion. In addition, the last 2 fighters to hold this specific Cage Titans title have been his teammates so he will surely not only be looking to avenge a loss but also keep the belt within his gym.
In other action, Danielle Hindley returns to the cage against newcomer Adina Beaudry, Scott Gorgone takes on tough veteran Fernando Perez and two amateur fights with future title implications occur when Brendon Marotte battles Antoine Caparotta and Chris Mehu faces off with Derek Peterson.
