In addition to the main event, the main card will also feature Ken Hasegawa make his Titan FC debut as a light heavyweight against Matthew Thompson.

The event will kick off with the preliminary card at 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT and the main card will begin at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on the CBS Sports Network.

Below is five reasons why you should tune into the CBS Sports Network tonight for Titan FC 31.

1. The Main Event
This fight card has seen a change in the main event as Desmond Green vs. Miguel Torres has been elevated to the headlining bout after Mike Ricci vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida was pulled from the event. Green is stepping into the cage for the first time since losing to Daniel Weichel in the Bellator Season Ten featherweight tournament final and Torres is currently on a three fight winning streak.

Since signing with Titan FC, Green has moved his training from New York to Tri-Star in Montreal and he will be able to show off what he has been working on in this fight. Torres has won three in a row since exiting the World Series of Fighting and he will be looking for his first four fight winning streak since 2009.

2. Ken Hasegawa
The DEEP heavyweight champion was recently signed by Titan FC and he is making his light heavyweight debut. Along with this being his 205 pound debut, this will also be his first fight to take place in the United States. Hasegawa has won three of his eight fights by TKO/KO and his opponent tonight, Matthew Thompson is currently on a five fight winning streak and has won ten of his last eleven.

3. American Top Team vs. Blackzilians
The Titan FC 31 card has multiple matchups of American Top Team vs. Blackzilians. Both teams are located in South Florida and have developed a nice rivarly in the sport. When it comes to the matchups between these two teams, the two fights to keep an eye out for are Hayder Hassan vs. Felipe Portela and Scott Barrett vs. Kenny Garner.

4. Tyler Stinson
Stinson returns to Titan for the first time since 2009 as he has competed in Strikeforce, Bellator, and the World Series of Fighting. The fighter out of the Grudge Training Center will be looking to rebound from his defeat to Josh Burkman at World Series of Fighting 9, which snapped a four fight winning streak.

5. Fight under the radar
On this card, there are several fights that could be considered under the radar. However, I will point out one of the fights on the preliminary card and that is the welterweight bout between Brock Jardine and Steve Montgomery. Jardine is looking to snap a three fight losing streak and Montgomery is looking for his fifth win in a row. This is not a fight that many people are discussing, but could be one I am asking Jeff Aronson about once the fight card is over.
