Titan FC Continues To Add To Roster, Confirms Battle Of Ex-UFC Fighters

Titan FC continues to build up their roster, announcing the signing of three more fighters – including an unbeaten lightweight prospect.

The promotion, which returns to action later this month with Titan FC 27, confirmed with FightLine that they have agreed to terms with D.J. Linderman, Jose Landi-Jons and Jake Lindsey.

Also, former Ultimate Fighter runner-up Vinny Magalhaes will return to the cage against Jason Brilz at Titan FC 28 in April.

Linderman (15-7) competes at heavyweight and owns five knockout and four submission victories to his credit. He is an even 2-2 in his last four fights overall, and has faced the likes of Robert Drysdale, Anthony Johnson and Rich Hale during his MMA career.

Landi-Jons (28-15) has won five of his last six fights, including two first round knockouts, two TKO wins and a submission victory. In his career, the veteran has a dozen knockout and 12 more submission wins.

Lindsey (9-0) is coming off three straight first round knockout victories, and owns another three wins via submission. He fought for Titan FC back in 2013, finishing Zach Freeman in the first round.

As for the fight announcement, Magalhaes (10-7) will be looking to halt a two-fight losing skid from his second stint with the UFC.

After submitting Igor Pokrajac in 2012, Magalhaes was defeated by Phil Davis and Anthony Perosh. All 10 of his pro wins have come via finish – eight submission and two knockouts.

“I’m not going back to the big leagues by fighting scrubs,” posted Magalhaes on his Twitter page after the fight was announced.

Magalhaes, who is a frequent training partner of Chael Sonnen and will be appearing as a coach with him on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, is a second degree Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt.

Brilz (20-5-1) is also an ex-UFC fighter who has won three straight since his release from the promotion. He picked up a pair of decision victories to close out 2013.

During his UFC run, Brilz went just 1-4, but three of his losses were to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Vladimir Matyushenko and Ryan Bader. The Nogueira loss was a split decision that went against him.
