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!
