The future of Titan Fighting Championship was thrown into question last night with the announcement on social media that the promotion’s card on 18th December had been cancelled.
It appears as though the Titan Fighting Championship may be coming to an abrupt end following the news that their next event has been cancelled with a mere nine days notice. A statement on Twitter informed fans that the event had been suspended and that further information would be available in due course. Within 24 hours a press release was issued explaining that the cancellation was due to the sudden ill-health of Titan CEO, Jeff Aronson:
“With heavy hearts and deep regret, Titan FC has announced the cancellation of Titan FC 36 this afternoon due to health complications related to an unexpected surgical procedure CEO Jeff Aronson underwent recently. The event was scheduled to take place on December 18 from The Scottish Rite Center in KC, MO and stream live on UFC Fight Pass.
Titan FC’s dedicated staff made every effort to go through with the card, but with Aronson away and unable to handle his duties as CEO, the promotion was logistically not prepared to move forward with Titan FC 36.”
“While the cancellation of any event is the last thing any promotion wants to do, Titan FC is confident that 2016 will be an amazing year for the fans and the great fighters who have helped the organization grow into an MMA powerhouse in less than two years. The dates and venues are being worked on and a schedule of events for 2016 will be released shortly. CEO Jeff Aronson will address the fans and fighters as soon as he is physically able to do so.”
The Midwestern promotion is one of the quickest growing bradns in North American MMA with a number of popular fighters on their roster, including Welsh bantamweight Brett “Pikey” Johns who claimed the promotion’s world title this year by defeating Walel Watson.
