After sitting on the sidelines for over a year and a half during COVID, Cage Titans returned in a big way last month and now looks to keep that momentum going with a quick turnaround by returning to Plymouth Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 28th. Coming out of the pandemic there has been no shortage of fighters eager to get back in the cage and resume their careers making it a simple decision to host two events in back to back months.

In the Main Event, long time Cage Titans staple ‘Skeletor’ Joe Giannetti (9-4) takes on Michigan’s Darius ‘Solo Beast’ Estell (7-3) in a highly anticipated Lightweight Title Bout. Estell is no stranger to coming in from out of state to take on the hometown hero as in his only Cage Titans appearance of his career, he did just that by handing Giannetti’s teammate Zach DiSabatino his very first loss. In the Co-Main Event that same night, Giannetti was victorious in his own bout and since then, these two have been on each other’s radars. Over two years later, the stars have finally aligned and they now get the opportunity to face-off with the added bonus of the newly vacated Cage Titans 155lb Championship going home with the winner.

As for the Co-Main Event, ‘The Party’ Joe Penafiel (6-3) will take on ‘Suave’ Richie Santiago (8-3). Penafiel made his Cage Titans debut last event and boy what an impression did he make by trashing talking and showboating his way to victory over previously undefeated prospect Pat Gilbride. Ever the showman, immediately after the final bell sounded, he secured a return trip back from Florida by making his way over to the commentating booth and throwing out a challenge. To many people’s surprise, that challenge was answered rather quickly by none other than Cage Titans commentator Richard Santiago, who just so also happens to fight in the same weight-class. Since that very moment it was on, and the two have been trading jabs on social media and seem to have grown a strong disdain for one an other which adds another level of intrigue to this showdown between two extremely skilled bantamweights.

And in the featured lead-in bout to the Main and Co-Main Event, the amateurs take center stage when current, undefeated AM Featherweight Champion Shane Dougherty defends his title for the first time against Xavier Cardona. Cardona made a strong case for himself in his last two fights by finishing both his opponents in the first round and then when Dougherty’s original opponent pulled out this show, Cardona answered the call, no hesitation, with a simple “Hell Yeah, I’m in” so here we are!

We are Cage Titans and We are back. After a crazy year and a half of being away from the cage due to the COVID pandemic, the time is finally here to return to action. What better way to not only welcome people back to the fights, but back to normalcy, than an incredibly stacked fight card from our beautiful home of Plymouth Memorial Hall.

A fight that was originally scheduled to go down pre-COVID finds itself rebooked in the Main Event slot when ‘Shameless’ Don Shainis battles Michigan’s Darius Estell for the Cage Titans Featherweight Championship. Estell is no stranger to coming to Plymouth to take out a hometown hero and plans on fulfilling that role once again. As for Shainis, his goal is simple, capture the featherweight championship as an end cap on his local career and have it catapult him to the next level, the UFC.

Speaking of the UFC, ‘Slippery Pete’ Peter Barrett returns to Cage Titans in the Co-Main event after a stint with the promotion during 2020. His hope is that a big win here could punch his ticket back but standing in his way is a big test in Ali Zebian. Zebian, much like Estell, has traveled to Plymouth before and played crowd silencer and he is thinking that a huge win over a UFC vet may just be exactly what he needs to find himself there by the end of 2021.

And in the featured lead-in bout to the Main and Co-Main Event, two tough as nails competitors throw down when Sean Lally takes on Billy Goff. Violence is the first word that comes to mind when you think of this match-up as both of these brawlers are known for never taking a step backwards and always swinging for the fences, going for a finish in the most brutal of fashions

With another massive Cage Titans in the rearview mirror; an event that smashed all records for the promotion, the bar has been set to a lofty height going into their tenth year. With the call going out to fighters for the anticipated follow-up, the response was as deafening as the sold-out crowds of Memorial Hall, leaving little choice but to make history yet again.

For the first time ever, Cage Titans will be hosting back-to-back shows, featuring two full fight cards across two locations, with two different rulesets.

The first card sees Cage Titans return to Pinz for Cage Titans Combat Night 3, setting the proving ground for a slew of amateurs who are hungry to earn their chance at the bright lights of Plymouth Memorial Hall. Capping the Pinz card of both amateur muay thai and MMA will be a solid main event, as undefeated Connor Matthews from Lauzon MMA takes on returning Alaska-based fighter Kris Berberich. Having made the long trek from the frosty forty-ninth state for last Cage Titans, Berberich was handed a tough loss in a gutsy performance at 155lbs. Asking for a chance to redeem himself at 145, Berberich sees himself lined up with long time Cage Titans battler in Matthews, who seeks to continue his assault on the professional ranks.

 

Shifting the action back to Plymouth Memorial Hall for the second event, there will be a plethora of amateur titles in both MMA and Muay Thai being contested for. The lightweight title will be up for grabs as grappling powerhouse Dion Rubio faces Evolution Athletix hatchetman Mohammad Al Kinani in a potential Cage Titans classic. In 135lb action, Kam Arnold and Arthur Mpofu will battle for the now vacant 135lb strap; seeking to hold the single most illustrious belt in the promotions history. Finally, on the amateur side, the first Cage Titans Amateur Muay Thai title is on the line, as crowd favorite Shaun Shubert faces newcomer Jordan MacFarlane for the right to claim the new title.

On the professional side Saturday we’re treated to a worthy co-main and main event; bouts that will single-handedly sell out this epic show. In the co-main event, full-time fighter and part-time commentator Jay Perrin will defend his 135lb Professional title against world-travelling leg lock specialist Bendy Casimir in a nail-biting contest. Finally, one of the proudest products of Cage Titans, “Shameless” Don Shainis will look to hoist his first title as a professional, taking on hometown spoiler, Michigan Top Team’s Darius Estell.

All these bouts, plus a cavalcade of hungry lions on the undercard await to entertain in this two part April event.

2020 marks Cage Titans’ 10th year in business and in celebration, they are kicking off the monumental year in a huge way with arguably its biggest and most stacked event ever. This epic 22 fight, fight card will have a little bit of everything from first time amateur debuts testing the waters to rising stars with UFC aspirations to returning UFC veterans with hopes of getting back, and in the Main Event slot, two long time New England staples squaring off in a dream match-up for fans of the regional scene.

With over 50 fights combined between the two of them, spanning careers that date back well over 10 years, it is amazing that Kin Moy and Tateki Matsuda have never crossed paths, though they have both long been consider two of the best Bantamweights in New England. On January 25th that all changes though and for Kin, he hopes that a win over the UFC vet will be the last local win needed to propel him to where Tateki has already been. As for Tateki, the goal is similar and he is eager to get back to the big stage and taking out an opponent of Kin’s caliber could be the rub he needs to do so.

In the Co-Main event, two Cage Titans originals square off when Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell welcomes Jeff Perez to the Bantamweight division. If you have been around Cage Titans, these two names you should be intimately familiar with as Campbell holds the record for the most amount of fights in the organization with 22 and Perez has had every one of his fights inside the Cage Titans cage, with 14 total bouts between his amateur and pro career. Campbell had an amazing 2019, going 3-0 with 3 finishes, and looks to keep the ball rolling by stopping another high level opponent. As for Perez, he drops to 135lbs for the first time in his career and wants to make a run to the top of the ranks by jumping right into the deep end.

And in the lead-in featured bout, Cage Titans Bantamweight Champion, Jay Perrin, takes on Brazil’s Diego Silva in a 140lb non-title fight. Perrin was last seen competing on Dana White’s Contender Series and though he came up short in earning himself a UFC contract that night, he came back with even more fire and intends to make quick work of Silva. As for Silva, the dangerous BJJ black belt has had an extremely difficult time finding opponents in the US and is thrilled for the opportunity to show off his skills and plans on making an immediate impact and shake up the division by taking out Perrin.

Cage Titans returns to Plymouth Memorial Hall on Saturday, November 2nd for Cage Titans XLVI, an event that features two amazing Bantamweight match-ups headlining the card.

In the Main Event, Cage Titans Bantamweight Champion, Jay ‘Savage’ Perrin (8-4) defends his title against ‘The Kneebar King’ Bendy Casimir (22-15-2). Perrin burst onto the Cage Titans scene in 2018, picking up two stoppage victories before going on to win the Cage Titans title later- that year as well as earning Fighter of the Year honors. Not slowing down, Perrin successfully defended his belt to kick off 2019 and earned himself a shot at a UFC contract this past summer on Dana White’s Contender Series. Unfortunately, he came up just shy of winning that contract and he now returns home to the local scene to prove that he is still the king and one of the very best Bantamweights not only in New England, but the country. Standing in his way of doing so will be Casimir, a BJJ black belt specialist and a veteran of 39 professional fights. Casimir, originally from France now fighting out of Las Vegas, has fought all over the entire world, making his debut back in 2001, a time when Perrin was just 8 years old. With that type of experience, it is safe to say that there really isn’t much that Casimir hasn’t scene and he is no stranger to coming into enemy territory to play the role of spoiler.

As for the Co-Main Event, former Cage Titans Bantamweight Champion and local fan favorite, Johnny ‘Cupcakes’ Campbell (18-12) battles Brazil’s Bruno ‘Jacare’ Dias (19-10-1). Campbell is no stranger to the Cage Titans cage holding the record for most appearances at 21 and though he has been competing professionally going on 10 years, many feel he is just now entering his peak performance years. Since dropping the Bantamweight Title to Perrin in 2018, it seems to have lit a fire under him and he is coming in off two of the biggest wins of his career and hopes one more here will earn him a shot at the title he feels is his. As for Dias, unfortunately he has not been active since moving to Mass a few years back and though he has welcomed any and all comers, he has had difficulty getting anyone to sign on the dotted line which has forced him to sit on the sidelines for the past two years. The BJJ black belt is now ecstatic though that someone has finally stepped upped to his open challenge and plans on showing all of New England what many in his home country already know, that he is a dangerous fight for anyone.
