Titan FC 53 takes place at Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida tonight (Friday, March 15, 2019) at 8 p.m. (ET) live on UFC Fight Pass. The flyweight title is on the line in the main event as Gustavo Balart battles Juan Puerta in a rematch.
Puerta (16-6) has won six consecutive bouts, most recently defeating Kazbek Ashimov via third round D’Arce choke at Titan FC 51 in December 2018 to capture the Titan Flyweight Title. Balart (8-1) hails from Cuba and is currently riding a two-fight winning streak, most recently finishing Wascar Cruz via knockout in just 20 seconds at Titan FC 51 this past January. This bout is a rematch of one of 2018’s most exciting finishes, where Puerta knocked out Balart via flying knee in the third round at Titan FC 48 in February of 2018.
The interim welterweight title also is on the line as Jared Gooden takes on Mike Graves. Gooden (13-2) is making his Titan FC debut and has won six consecutive bouts. Graves (7-1-2) is a UFC veteran who won his debut match in Titan via unanimous decision in December.
