Recap: Torres is a major favorite in this fight, but he was nearly stopped in the first round. He dropped him with a giant left hook and then locked on a very tight Guillotine Choke, but “Shorty” Torres was able to escape the submission attempt. All in all, champion won the first round.  Good second round, plenty of action. Torres started taking the lead in the standup and delivered the better of the striking. One round apiece. Torres wins the third round and is taking control of the fight with his superior standup. Farkhad is cut by an elbow.  Sharipov doing his best, but he’s a one handed fighter at this point, after hurting his right hand. Torres picking him apart, and putting rounds in the bank. Heading into the final round, Sharipov needs a stoppage for a win. The fighters exchange decent shots standing, but Torres has his way with him Sharipov, taking him down and controlling him.  Fight ends, and Torres wins a Unanimous Decision to become the new Titan FC Bantamweight Champion.

Recap: Good first round, both men landed some decent shots. Cavalcante landed some solid low kicks and worked well behind a jab. At the end of the round, he did get a takedown, but it was a very close round.  Holobaugh picking up the pace in the second round, and he’s landing Cavalcante. Cavalcante lands some low kicks, but he’s losing the fight. I’ve got it one round a piece.  Third round belonged to Cavalcante who landed the takedown and controlled the action on the mat for the majority of the round.  Holobaugh landed some very heavy shots to open the fourth round, and Cavalcante got hurt. Kurt Holobaugh opened up on the ground and landed repeated elbows and punches, bloodying JZ. Holobaugh bangs him out, and the referee has to stop the fight.
