A pair of welterweight title holders will collide in the main event of Titan Fighting Championships 59 as Titan FC Welterweight Champion Michael Graves faces Titan FC Interim Welterweight Champion Kamal Magomedov.
Graves (8-1-2) became the welterweight champion with a unanimous decision win over Jared Gooden at Titan FC 53. Graves is going to be in action for the first time in just about a year, as his last fight took place in March of 2019. Graves also won two of three while competing in the UFC, with those wins coming over Vicente Luque and Randy Brown.
Magomedov (8-0-0) won the interim welterweight championship after defeating Italo Da Silva Goncalves by first round submission at Titan FC 57. Magomedov has competed a total of eight times as a professional MMA fighter and none of those bouts went past the opening round. Magomedov competed twice in 2019, which was the first time since 2013 that the fighter fought more than once in a calendar year.
Titan FC 59 takes place on Friday, February 28 from the Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with Michael Graves and Kamal Magomedov headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
