Though it will be hard to top the recording setting event that kicked off 2019 back in January, Cage Titans makes a strong argument towards doing so when it returns to Plymouth Memorial Hall on Saturday, April 6th with another stacked card filled with interesting story lines top to bottom.

In the Main Event, two heavy-handed brawlers face off when Middleweight Champion Sean Lally takes on friend and former training partner Shedrick Goodridge in a three round non-title fight. Lally was last seen fighting for a UFC contract on Dana White’s Contender Series but unfortunately came up short so looks to return so he can build his resume back up and earn another crack at it. As for Goodrige, this will not be the first time he has journeyed up to New England to play the role of spoiler, as he has picked up huge upset wins over two former Top 5 fighters in prior trips to the area.

As for the Co-Main Event, Jimmy ‘The Tooth’ Manning and Fernando Perez meet once again in hopes of settling the score definitely after an injury led to an early conclusion the first time they squared off. In that meeting, the fans got an unbelievable opening round of back and forth action but unfortunately Perez broke his foot throwing a kick in one of the exchanges, robbing them of what was shaping up to be the Fight of the Night. 

The story for the next three fan favorites on the card will be, how do you rebound from your first professional loss. In their last outings, Danielle Hindley (3-1), Zach DiSabatino (5-1) and Jeff Perez (4-1) each suffered the first losses of their careers but instead of sitting around sulking, they are jumping right back into the cage with hopes of getting back into the win column and reminding fans why they were looked at as some of the regions top prospects. Hindley is set to take on JKD fighter Ivana Coleman, DiSabatino will be battling Albert Tulley, who is also looking to right the ship after suffering his first loss last show as well, and Jeff Perez takes on 15 fight veteran Raymond Yanez.

Then you have three reigning Cage Titans Amateur Champions making their professional debuts all on the same night, in what may one day be looked at as the best ever “Rookie Class” to debut on one event. Flyweight Champion Mitch Raposo battles Colorado’s Rob Fuller, Bantamweight Champ Jacobo Apito takes on super tough Mike Taylor out of New York and Welterweight Title holder Trevor Gudde throws-down with Vermont’s John Adams.

Two other pro match-ups to watch out for that will have Memorial Hall rocking is the return of Don Shainis as well as red-hot prospect Randy Costa making his fifth appearance in a row. After being sidelined this past year with a broken neck, and the follow-up surgery, Shainis is finally healthy and ready to put on a show for his huge fan-base ‘Shameless Nation’. As for Costa, the hype he brings is real and he will be looking to keep his perfect record intact with hopes of another first round finish in front of the hundreds of ‘Costa Crew’ fans in attendance.

With the professionals taking center stage on the Main Card, you can’t forget the amateurs on the Undercard who make up what will be the future wave of pro stars. The fights to watch will definitely be the Amateur Title fights between the best New England has to offer. The vacant Lightweight Championship will be on the line when undefeated submission ace Dion Rubio battles heavy-handed Eddy George, who already holds a title for another promotion in his home state of Connecticut. Then the belt up for grabs is the vacant Featherweight Title where undefeated 2018 Breakout Fight of the Year Shane Dougherty takes on Jordan Brown.
