titan fc 29

An injury to Matt Riddle has changed main event plans for Titan FC 29.

Replacing Riddle will be veteran Jose Landi-Jons, also known as Pele, for a welterweight title fight with Ben Saunders. The event takes place August 22, with the main card airing live on CBS Sports Network from Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Jons (28-15) was to make his Titan FC debut earlier this year, but visa issues kept him from competing. He has won five of his last six and owns wins over the likes of Matt Hughes, Pat Miletich and Alexander Shlemenko.

Saunders (16-6-2) is a veteran of Bellator and will be making his debut with the promotion. He is 3-1 in his last four, with the lone loss coming to current Bellator champion Douglas Lima.

News of the fight change was first reported by MMA Fighting.

Below is the current lineup:

Vacant Titan FC Welterweight Championship
Ben Saunders vs. Jose Landi-Jons

Mike Ricci vs. George Sotiropoulos

Mike Bronzoulis vs. Keith Johnson

Tyler Minton vs. Blain Thomas

Kurt Holobaugh vs. Lloyd Woodard

Mike Bruno vs. D’Juan Owens

Luciano dos Santos vs. Jeremy Severn

Bristol Marunde vs. Micah Miller

    And to muddy the waters even further, Ben Saunders just got resigned by the Ufc. Really pleased for him, I became a fan during his spell at bellator, especially after watching him out grapple a top class bjj guy in Luis Santos, very impressive. A lot of people will moan that they are willing to sign Saunders but not Askren, and I agree with them, but I’m still happy for Ben. Would be nice if he gets thrown in against Akiyama now that kyle noke is out, instead of Amir Sadollah
