What better way to celebrate the monumental 50th show in Cage Titans FC history than to have two different fightcards...on the same day? That's just what Michael Polvere and company have planned Saturday in Plymouth, Massachusetts when Cage Titans premiers a, first of its kind, day-night doubleheader from Plymouth Memorial Hall. Billed as two separate events; the daytime event kicks off at noon, Saturday, November 6th with a predominately amateur card featuring both MMA and Muay Thai bouts. Culminating with an Amateur Welterweight Title fight between Challengers Jack Congdon (3-0) and Steve Foley (1-1) before Professional Lightweights Zach "The Ripper" DiSabatino (7-2) and Chance Beck (5-1) meet in the afternoon's Main Event.
For the nightcap; Cage Titans welcomes fans back to Plymouth Memorial Hall again at 7:30 pm with a predominately professional card featuring your favorite Cage Titans cast of characters. "Slippery" Pete Barrett, Joe "The Party" Penafiel, "Shameless" Don Shainis, Connor "The Controller" Matthews, Jeff Joy, "Killa" Kam Arnold and of course; "Cornflakes" Rob Fuller all lead up to a Welterweight Main Event Title fight for the ages as Marty Navis and Billy Goff meet with the vacant Cage Titans Welterweight crown on the line. Fans who plan on attending both events must hold tickets to both events, for those of you who cannot attend a Pay Per View will be available at CageTitansFC.com or you can always follow along with our live coverage at NewEnglandMMA.org, below is a look at both ends of this epic Cage Titans 50 doubleheader.

Chance Beck (5-1) vs. Zach DiSabatino (7-2)
Lightweight Main Event
Fighting out of: Louisville, Kentucky
Affiliation: Team One
Record: 5-1 (2 Knockouts, 3 Submissions)
Last fight: Fifth Round TKO (Strikes) loss to Adam Assenza at B2 Fighting Series 127. (07/23/21)
Fighting out of: Marshfield, Massachusetts
Affiliation: South Shore Sportfighting
Record: 7-2 (4 Knockouts, 2 Submissions)
Last fight: Unanimous Decision victory over Anthony Facchini at Cage Titans 48. (07/10/21)
Breakdown: We have a banger of a Main Event here to close out the afternoon portion of this doubleheader; Cage Titans fan favorite Zach “The Ripper” DiSabatino would fight on every Cage Titans fight card of the year if he had it his way. He will have to settle for headlining just one of Saturday’s events, when he looks for a signature win to add to his resume at the expense of Kentucky’s Chance Beck. Stylistically this should be a wild display of grappling, DiSabatino, known for his powerful slams and imposing top pressure, against a slick submission specialist and crafty grappling veteran in Chance Beck. Neither fighter can afford to have holes in their game when the pin drops on this one, one mistake and it’s snap or nap when these two finishers collide. I’ll be looking for DiSab to dictate the pace here and put Beck on his back, the only question is, will Zach be able to finish Beck, before Beck finds compromise in the submission defense of DiSab? It’s going to be an interesting fight to watch play out as these two promising Lightweights meet in the Game 1 Headliner!
Night Game: 7:30 pm first pitch
Do not let the record of Dexter MMA's Austin Schalla fool you, the 24 year old Schalla is as tough as they come. Schalla is your classic Dexter MMA representative; someone who refuses to take easy fights, and that will be no different here, when he takes on multi promotional Amateur Welterweight Champion; Evolution Athletix' Duncan "The Highlander" Smith. This one should be a barn burner at 170 pounds.
Amateur Lightweight Title
This is about as high level an amateur fight as you could put together throughout the region, Mo Al Kinani is the consensus number one Amateur Lightweight in the region. If Al Kinani can scathe off AMMO Amateur Lightweight Champion Nuri Abrar for the vacant Cage Titans Amateur Lightweight strap, he could solidify himself as the top amateur prospect, in any weight class, throughout New England.
Rob Fuller (1-12 Team Fuller) vs Kam Arnold (0-0 Recon)
Catchweight (140 lbs.)
Fighting out of: Lakewood, Colorado
Affiliation: Team Fuller
Record: 1-12 (1 Knockouts)
Last fight: First Round Knockout loss to Ryan Kuse at Titan FC 72. (09/17/21)
Fighting out of: Portland, Maine
Affiliation: Recon MMA
Record: Debut (6-1 as an Amateur)
Last fight: Second Round Knockout of Walt Shea at NEF 41. (11/09/19)
Breakdown: Holy schnikes! What a way to kick off the professional portion of this card, two of the rowdiest dudes to ever enter Plymouth Memorial Hall will now meet in the middle of it. Last time Kam Arnold was in the building he suffered the only loss of his MMA career, a second round Rear Naked Choke loss to then Cage Titans Bantamweight Amateur Champion Jeff Joy at Cage Titans 45. However, the electricity in the building during that fight; combined with the high level nature of the matchup between two of the regions best Amateur prospects, Arnold vs. Joy would go down as an “instant classic'' in the Cage Titans vault, and would stamp Kam Arnold's name in the “must see” category of the Cage Titans roster.
Standing across from Arnold Saturday night; the most polarizing figure in the promotion’s history; “Razor” Rob “Cornflakes” Fuller a.k.a. Minnie White Kimbo Slice a.k.a. Frank Dux. For Fuller; it’s another weekend, another high level New England prospect and another skull to bounce his fists off of...Kam Arnold told our Steve Domenico in The Room Podcast that he expects to show progression in this fight and display himself as a well rounded martial artist. That is not going to be an easy to do with Rob Fuller’s constant forward movement...and impending haymakers! Fuller forces most of his opponents into brawls, forcing guys to throw technique out the window and fight for their lives. If you’re a young New England pro and not sure what you’re made of...Rob Fuller will be glad to find out for you, as he is always down for a fist fight! Did I mention this matchup excites me?
Jeff Joy (1-0) vs Jason Rine (1-7)
Fighting out of: Bourne, Massachusetts
Affiliation: Loco Lobo
Record: 1-0 (1 Submission)
Last fight: First Round Submission (Rear Naked Choke) of Rob Fuller at Cage Titans 48. (07/10/21)
