Undefeated Titan FC Featherweight champion Andre Harrison will put his undefeated streak and title on the line against Bellator veteran Alexandre Bezerra on Friday, Sept. 9 during Titan FC 41, airing on UFC Fight Pass from the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami in Coral Gables.
Bezerra is honored to have a title shot while making his Titan debut.
“I was really excited and honored to get a title shot on my debut. It’s motivated me to perform well,” he told The Roman Show.
The Brazilian took time off before making his return earlier this year.
Never miss a local story.
“I had a personal problem,” he said. “I focused on my jiu jitsu career. I tried to focus as a trainer. You can’t always count on fighting for the money to pay the bills. I focused on teaching. I tried to focus on my personal life. I took that pressure off my back, and now I am able to fight.”
Meanwhile, Harrison sent his last opponent to the hospital. The champion defeated Deivison Ribeiro after his foe suffered a leg injury. Ribeiro was taken to the hospital immediately. Bezerra isn’t intimidated by Harrison's record or fighting style.
“He is a great fighter,” he said. “My style matches good to him. He is a wrestler. He doesn’t do much when he gets on the ground. He is too conservative, and I’m a jiu jitsu guy. The match up is good for me. I don’t think he has anything that can surprise me.”
Hear more from Bezerra who discussed teaching jiu jitsu and more.
The night will also feature the inaugural women’s bantamweight title with Carina Damm against Kalindra Faria fighting for that belt in the main event.
