Some more signing news coming from Titan Fighting Championships.
MMAmania.com has learned from sources close to the promotion the signing of top undefeated Brazilian bantamweight fighter Luis Rafael Laurentino. The news was confirmed by Titan CEO Jeff Aronson.
Though American audiences are likely unfamiliar with "Japa" and his accomplishments, this should be considered a major coup for the promotion. Currently sporting a 24-0 record, this 21 year-old fighter represents the future of Brazilian mixed martial arts (MMA).
He made his debut in 2012, picking up three wins. 2013 was his breakout year, one in which he fought and won an astounding 21 times. That insane schedule put his finishing skills on display. Most impressive is the fact he continues to show improvement with each outing.
"Japa" is a member of the Renovacao Fight Team, home to current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Luiz Jorge Dutra Jr.
He is set to make his first appearance at Titan 28. No opponent has been announced as of yet, but stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more details on his debut, as they become available.
