Titan FC returns after over three months away with Titan FC 80, a six-fight card set to take place live from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida.
The main event will see lightweight champion Landon Quinones defend his title for the first time against promotional debutant Yemi Oduwole. South Florida’s 26 year old “Lone Wolf” Quinones has finished all but one of his six professional wins, including his last fight at Titan FC 75, where he captured the belt via third-round stoppage. His only career loss was to fellow top prospect Muhammadjon Naimov back in 2019 at Titan FC 54, and could be on the cusp of taking the next step to bigger and better things with a win.
Oduwole, meanwhile, is set to drop to the lightweight division for only the second time in his 12-fight professional career, with the last time coming back in 2018 in his third professional fight. The 32 year old “Yemster” has won two in a row, with his last two wins coming by second-round finish.
Originally set to be a title fight, the co-main event will no longer have a belt on the line for now-former bantamweight champion Ira Lukowsky after he missed the bantamweight limit, weighing in at 138 pounds. His fight against Wendel Araujo will still take place, with only Araujo able to capture the title. The 35 year old “American Thoroughbred” Lukowsky is undefeated at 3-0 and captured the vacant belt in his last fight at Titan FC 73. This fight was set to be his first defense, but instead faces the MMA Masters-trained Araujo in a non-title affair. “Cobra” Araujo snapped a two-fight skid in an impressive way, upsetting prospect Sal Guerriero by majority decision at Titan FC 77 his last time out.
Titan FC flyweight champion Victor Dias will also compete, moving up ten pounds to bantamweight to face fellow Brazilian Thiago Melo, who will try to get back in the win column after being submitted by now-UFC fighter Joshua Weems in his last fight.
MMA Sucka has fight fans covered with Titan FC 80 results, with all fights set to air on UFC Fight Pass starting at 8pm ET/5pm PT.
