On Saturday, August 29th Cage Titans is set to return to Plymouth Memorial Hall for another exciting night of ‘live’ MMA Action. The Main Event will feature 145lb champion Jeff Perez putting his title on the line against challenger, Kris Moutinho. Moutinho is already a two division belt holder, both 125lb & 135lb Cage Titans’ champion and less than 24 hours after winning that second belt the last event, at 135lb, he immediately called-out asking for a shot at 145lbs. In this bout Moutinho wants to prove that he is the best fighter in New England period, with hopes of adding a third title to his collection. As for Perez, the extremely hard-hitting champion has looked unstoppable as of late and in his past three fights won each of them by his opponents retiring on the stool. When this match-up was proposed, the champ gladly accepted the challenger’s call-out but plans on proving why he is top dog at 145, and sending a message to any others that have thoughts of taking his spot.
Also in action, 155lb champion Don Shainis puts his belt on the line verse challenger Devin Carrier. Carrier, aka Mr Fight of the Night, is one of Cage Titans’ most exciting fighters, picking up ‘Fight Night Awards’ in 4 out of his 5 fights. This kid is never in a boring fight and is known for his brawling styling but also added a nice submission game to his arsenal, picking up ‘Sub of the Night’ in his last outing. As for Shainis, the undefeated champ sits atop the divisional rankings and picked up the title by running through every fighter that stood across from him. He is a powerful wrestler that pushes the pace while hunting for the finish and it shows as all of his wins so far in his career have come via either submission or KO. Overall this match-up is sure to produce fireworks and one that you will not want to miss!
And in the final title fight of the night, Sarah Click and Devon Estes battle it out for the first ever Cage Titans female 115lb title. Estes, the submission ace, is coming in hot off of back to back, first round submission wins. Many will remember her from last event when she competed alongside her fiancee, Steve McCabe, and they both picked up armbar victories in under 2 minutes. They are once again fighting together on this card so surely will be looking for those same results. As for Click, the heavy handed striker, is on an impressive streak of her own winning 4 out of her last 5 fights, 2 via KO. Outside the cage she is a member of the US Army and for the first time in almost a year, will be competing in her home state, so definitely looking for a happy homecoming. Two of the best female fighters in the region and a classic grappler vs striker match-up to crown a new champ, you could not ask for a better title fight in the budding female division!
Also in action, fan-favorite Peter Barrett returns to the cage to take on the above mentioned Steve McCabe, a grudge match for the ages between Ryan Cushing and Max Barrett, two former Cage Titans 145lb amateur champions Dan Dubuque and Ruso Khubesjashvili battling it out now as pros and Joe Giannetti and Alex Ortiz squaring off for the #1 contender spot and a shot at the title next event.
