Steve Carl signs with Titan FC, meets Belal Muhammad for vacant welterweight title at Titan FC 38

Titan FC 38 will be taking place on April 30 at the Miccosukee Casino in Miami, Florida and will be headlined by former WSOF welterweight champion Steve Carl facing Belal Muhammad for the vacant Titan FC welterweight title.

The fight booking was announced by Titan FC in a press release on Monday and along with announcing the main event, the promotion also announced that Jason Novelli vs. Yosdenis Cedeno and Peter Petties vs. Caio Rocha has been booked for the fight card.

Carl (22-4) took part in The Ultimate Fighter 21 as a member of American Top Team and he is coming off a submission win against Beslan Ushukov in December. He has won eight of his last nine fights and seventeen of his twenty-two career victories have come by submission. Muhammad (8-0) made his Titan FC debut last year and his last two wins have come in the promotion. His most recent win came in September as he defeated Zane Kamaka by unanimous decision.

“Titan FC 38 is a perfect example of our business model,” Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson said in a press release. “We are sticking true to our roots as we are matching up the brightest prospects in all of mixed martial arts against the most sought after free agents on the market. We’re also tapping into the deep Florida talent pool, all the while utilizing talent from across the country and as far out as Brazil.”
