Titan FC 27 results: Ex-UFC fighters Mike Ricci and Matt Riddle win big in Kansas City

USA TODAY Sports

Matt Riddle said he likes to "rip tubes and kick ass," then backed it up with a submission win against a former ZUFFA-veteran in "KC."

It has been a busy 24 hours in mixed martial arts (MMA).

Aside from Bellator 110 on Friday night (results), as well as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) doing its thing overseas (more on that here), Titan Fighting Championship made its CBS Sports Network debut on Feb. 28, 2014, inside Memorial Hall in Kansas City.

And it was a doozy.

Former UFC fighter Mike Ricci blew away fellow ZUFFA veteran Jorge Gurgel in the main event of the evening, busting him wide open (pic) and finishing the fight via brutal strikes. In the co-main, fellow UFC jetsam Matt Riddle and Michael Kuiper went to war, with "Deep Waters" taking home a third-round submission finish.
