On Saturday, January 27th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Cage Titans kicks off 2018 with a bang, hosting quite possibly the biggest fight ever to take place under the banner, when #1 ranked bantamweight Manny Bermudez (10-0) takes on his toughest test to date in Detroit’s Mike Hernandez (11-4). Bermudez is a well-known finish machine taking out 8 of his 10 opponents in the very first round and looks to add another victim to his resume with hopes that one more decisive victory will punch his ticket to the UFC. As for Hernandez, he is a juggernaut of a fighter with heavy hands, ending 8 of his 11 victories via TKO/KO, and plans on knocking the hype-train right off the tracks, catapulting himself to the top of the rankings.

In the Co-Main Event, Florida’s Avery ‘The Irish Hurricane’ McPhatter travels up to Massachusetts once again to take on ‘The Unpredictable One’ Sean Lally. This is a rematch of one of the most talked about fights of 2017 and since 3 rounds wasn’t enough, this time it will be a 5 round affair for the vacant Middleweight Title. Lally picked up the somewhat controversial decision in their first go-round but both men have said to leave the judges at home this time, because they plan on ending the fight decisively so that there are no doubts as to who the better man is and who is deserving of leaving with the title belt around their waist.

Also on tap, two amateur titles will be up for grabs when two current champions both go up a weight class in hopes of becoming multi-division champs. First up, female flyweight champion Kylie O’Hearn challenges Taylor Thompson for the vacant bantamweight title. This match-up has Fight of the Night written all over it as both these ladies are known for standing center cage and slugging it out. Next up, newly crowned featherweight champ Chris Sniger takes on 2017 KO of the Year recipient Chris ‘The Bearded Dragon’ O’Brien for the lightweight belt. These two fighters are flat-out ‘Must See’, collecting Fight Night Awards every time they step into the cage, and this fight promises to be one that will be talked about for a long time.

As always the Undercard will be stacked with a wide variety of hungry, up and coming, amateur fighters just getting their starts in the sport as well as established amateurs looking to position themselves higher in the rankings with hopes of earning an amateur title shot. One match in particular to keep an eye on will be a number one contender fight between Mitch Raposo and William Graustuck, where the winner will be awarded a flyweight title shot against champion Jake Kasperowski next event.
