This Friday night, Titan FC returns to its second home of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to host Titan FC 78 live from the Pabellon De Esgrima Centro Olimpico.
In a card filled with prolific veterans, top Caribbean prospects and multiple title bouts, expect many if not all of these bouts to be bangers. When the likes of Alex Nicholson, Jhonasky Sojo, Devon Dixon and Ty Johnson are on the same card, expect fireworks. However, these two bouts are not only fight of the night candidates, but also seem to be flying a bit under the radar.
Jhonasky Sojo vs. Jefrey Roy
Fighting Force Lightweight champion, Jhonasky Sojo, is one of the most electric talents in the entire Caribbean region. The 35-year-old has won four straight, all of which have been bangers. His fight at Titan FC 69, in which he defeated Lucas Marte to earn the vacant Fighting Force Lightweight title, became an instant classic and was a fight of the year candidate. The Venezuelan born, Dominican Republic resident has earned nine of his 12 wins by way of finish and has only seen the judges scorecards three times in 15 pro bouts. His aggressive striking style has earned him eight knockout victories as well. Sojo has proven he can do more than just strike as he holds a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt.
Jefrey Roy is an athletic talent with a background in grappling. The 31-year-old looked relatively dominant in his last two bouts scoring victories over Vincent Van Gogh and Kristian Lopez. In his pro career, Roy has scored four of his six wins by finish including three wins by knockout. The Dominican bred Sambo practitioner packs some serious knockout power and carries it through the entirety of the fight. One of Roy’s biggest flaws was his cardio, which in his last two bouts has looked significantly better. With that being said, this is a bout that guarantees pure action and will bring fans in the Pabellon De Esgrima Centro Olimpico to their feet.
Luis Peralta vs. Billy Molina
Luis Pertalta makes his second MMA appearance in the Titan FC cage this Friday night. The 23-year-old Team Mordan member, is a living factory of entertainment inside the cage and out. Despite his recent skid, he is a dangerous opponent for anyone. He has earned half of his wins by TKO and loves to show off his unorthodox Kickboxing style. Peralta was a standout as an amateur holding undefeated records in MMA, Boxing and Kickboxing.
Molina looks to get back in the win column as well in his promotional debut. The 35-year-old is coming off a loss to UFC Bantamweight Marcelo Rojo, and is stepping in the cage for the first time in the Caribbean. The Puerto Rico native is a veteran of nine pro bouts and makes the walk for the first time in five years this weekend. Molina carries a 100% finish rate with him and has been to the judges scorecards just twice in his pro career. Despite it being the featured prelim, this is one you don't want to miss.
