Ricci Making Quick Return to Titan Fighting
Quebec’s Mike Ricci is making a quick return to the Titan Fighting cage. This time against George Sotiropoulos at Titan Fighting 28. The date of the show has been tentatively set by CEO Jeff Aronson at April 25.
Mike Ricci (9-4) recently finished Jorge Gurgel at Titan Fighting 27. In the fight, Ricci took down Gurgel and TKO’d his opponent with some strong ground ‘n pound. It was a solid win for the Tristar fighter who was released from the UFC following a loss to Myles Jury.
George Sotiropoulous (14-6) will be returning to the cage for the first time since his UFC release. After winning eight consecutive bouts to put him into UFC Lightweight title talk, the Australian lost four in row in the Octagon. Sotiropoulous’ last UFC occurred over three years ago at UFC 123 against Joe Lauzon.
The fight will appear on the CBS Sports Network. Other fighters tentatively on the Titan Fighting 28 card include Vinny Magalhaes, Dave Herman, and DJ Linderman.
