The interim flyweight title will be on the line in the co-main event of Titan FC 40 as Abdiel Velazquez will look for his third straight win as he meet Jose Torres on the fight card coming from the BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida.
Velazquez (7-2) won his Titan FC debut in June as he defeated Alexis Vila by majority decision and five of his seven career victories have come by stoppage. The winner of this fight could be on the fast track to a potential UFC offer and Velazquez talked about his opponent on Wednesday’s edition of “The MMA Report Podcast.”
“I know he has a big confidence coming into the game,” Velazquez said. “He is a humble guy. I give him that. He is strong with his standup. He is a good wrestler. But I know — each round, I know he gets tired. But I know he is a good striker. So I have to be aware of that.”
