The card for Titan FC 24 is starting to take shape with the announcement of two tilts sure to draw interest from fans. In one match-up, former UFC fighter Anthony Johnson will make his light heavyweight debut against Esteves Jones, while highly-touted BJJer Braulio Estima is set to take on Chris Holland in what will be the decorated grappler’s first professional fight.
Both clashes were confirmed by the management team for Johnson/Estima in a press release sent out earlier today.
The 11-4 Johnson won his first appearance under the Titan FC banner, outpointing Dave Branch this past May. However, he failed to make the middleweight limit for the fight and came to the conclusion shortly thereafter he was best suited for 205 pounds. In Jones he will face an 8-3 competitor who is also coming off a win and has six strike-based stoppages to his credit.
Estima may not have any in-ring experience under his belt but the strap around his waist is as black as they come as proven by his numerous tournament wins in BJJ including a few ADCC titles. Meanwhile, Holland is 5-2 but is on a three-fight winning streak including a June knockout of Phil Baroni.
