Let's dive right into it!

The Main Event puts 2 of the best Flyweights in the area and maybe in the country against each other for the vacant Cage Titans Flyweight Championship! A massive player in the 125lb division, Mitch Raposo has UFC potential written all over him. Gaining an impressive 8-1 record since going pro, Raposo is on a 3 fight win streak all by finish. Looking to break that streak is Justin Valentin (4-2). Riding a 2 fight win streak and finishing both of those, this is fight i do not expect the judges to be needed for. Winning in multiple promotions, this is Valentines first time in the Cage Titans venue. On the other hand Mitch Raposo has never lost int the Cage Titans Memorial Hall! This will be a fun one.

Also on this card is the heated rematch between a Cage Titans veteran Aaron "ShortFuse" Hughes (4-4) and Jake "Hitman" Hixenbaugh (2-2). Hughes has quickly shot up in popularity in the Cage Titans promotion by being one of the most vocal fighters and also bringing the action. Hughes's last 7 fights, win or lose, have not gone the distance. Making Hughes a fan favorite. Stepping back in the cage with him is Jake Hixenbaugh. Hixenbaugh brings the same intensity when that cage door gets locked. Not one of Jakes pro fights have gone to decision. This fight has it all! A contested first fight, both finishers in the cage, and some high level grappling should be more then enough to order this PPV!

A HUGE announcement was Cage Titans first ever OG Championship. Does that stand for Original Gangsta ? or Old guy? You decide. Either way you'll need to call AARP after stepping into the cage with either of these guys. A great matchup, a fun title, and a new championship in the scene, Im all in!

One fight I am most looking forward to is the matchup between Aaron "Earthquake" Trecell (4-4, Sityodtong Boston) and Johnathan "Warhark" Piersma (6-2, Sythesis BJJ) . Trecell is undefeated under the Cage Titans banner getting finishes in both fights in the 2nd round. Piersma is 4-1 in his last 5 with wins during that stretch by KO, Submission and Decision. Showing he has ways to win no matter where the fight goes. Rumors were thrown around, but not confirmed, that this could be for the number one contender spot for the Cage Titans Pro Welterweight Championship. Either way, this will be a fight to remember.

The rest of the main card is stacked from top to bottom. Zach DiSabatino takes on Tom Santos and a huge rematch between Lionel Young and Pat Gilrbride goes down at 155lbs. GIlbride looks to revenge the round 1 loss to Young in their first outing. Will Young show us that history repeats itself, or will Gilbride show he's made improvements and right that wrong?

Starting the pro card is Everet Desilets vs Lorenzo Fitzgerald. This might be my "Don't Blink" fight of the night. Someone is going to sleep with the power these 2 have.

The amateur part of the event will host 5 fights. Headlining the amateur part is a local favorite Ozzy Martin (2-1) . Ozzy put on a fight on the year in 2023 and is a tough night out for anyone. stepping up to challenge Ozzy for the Cage Titans Vacant amateur Welterweight title is Cullen Johnson (3-2). Welterweight division is on fire in New England and these 2 have a chance to capture one of the toughest promotions titles in the area. Expect a war!

With a few more fights on the prelims and some muay thai there too make sure to get there early, get your Cage Titans IPAS and get your seat.
