Welterweight Title Fight to Headline Titan FC 57 in Dominican Republic on Oct. 19

By Cole Shelton Sep 4, 2019

A welterweight title bout between reigning champion Uros Jurisic and interim king Michael Graves will headline Titan Fighting Championship 57 in the Dominican Republic on Oct. 19.

Jurisic, who will be making his first title defense, is a perfect 10-0, with nine of those wins coming by stoppage. He won the belt at Titan FC 50 in June 2018, when he submitted Jose Caceres in the first round. He has since fought at W5 “Legends Collide” this past November, where he defeated Shota Gvasalia by first-round TKO.

Graves went 2-0-1 during a stint in the UFC with wins over Vicente Luque and Randy Brown and a draw against Bojan Velickovic. Since then, he went 0-1-1 in Fight Nights Global before heading to Titan FC, where he beat Gregg Ellis and Jared Gooden to become the interim welterweight champion.

The lightweight title will be on the line in the Titan FC 57 co-main event, as Martin Brown takes on Johansser Paulino. Mohammed Usman, the brother of UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman, will also compete on the card against an undetermined opponent.
