Healy-Cavalcante Lightweight Title Tilt Tops Titan FC 39 on June 10

By Mike Sloan May 11, 2016

Titan FC 39 will be anchored by a lightweight title clash between Pat Healy and Gesias Cavalcante on June 10 at Bank United Center in Coral Gables, Fla., the promotion announced Wednesday.

Healy once held the Titan FC 155-pound title but he was stripped of it on the scales prior to Titan FC 35 for missing weight. Rick Hawn toppled him the next day to claim the belt but when he retired from MMA, the belt was vacated, allowing Healy to get another shot. After losing four in a row inside the UFC’s Octagon, “Bam Bam” bounced back by winning three straight before losing to Hawn. Healy recently edged Musin Corbbrey via decision in March to get things back on track.

Cavalcante, meanwhile, has been up and down recently, as the former Dream and Strikeforce veteran is 3-4 in his last seven. “JZ” hasn’t fought since September of 2014 where he defeated Gele Qing in China.

Titan FC also revealed that featherweight champion Andre Harrison will look to defend his title for the third time when he takes on Deivison Francisco Ribeiro.

Also slated for the marquee is a welterweight eliminator bout between Dhiego Lima and David Michaud; Kurt Holobaugh will oppose Luciano dos Santos in a lightweight duel while Preston Parsons will lock horns with Ignacio Bahamondes.

Titan FC 39 will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
