Titan FC is making a name for themselves, and their events keep improving. There are quite a few developmental organizations that occupy space on a single network. Titan has separated themselves from the herd by signing an exclusive deal with CBS Sports Network and showing constant improvement of their product.  Every event is fun to watch. If there aren’t to many big names, there are plenty of up and comers looking to prove themselves which is a recipe for excitement. Titan FC 33 provides a bit of that, but it also has some big names. Here are the reasons you must watch Titan FC 33.

Desmond Green vs. Kurt Holobaugh

While the other fights I mention are largely between names and relative unknowns, this is not.  Both men are certainly on the radar of the matchmakers at the UFC. The winner is either going to get a call from Sean Shelby or they are unbelievably close to it. This will mark Green’s first title defense following his defeat of Steven Siler. Since joining Titan FC Green has made major changes to ensure that he continues to evolve and improve. He moved his camp to Tri-Star and it’s been paying off. Holobaugh fought for Strikeforce, then the UFC, but the outcome was to straight losses and a pink slip. Since that time he has accumulated four straight victories. A win over Green will get him the belt, notoriety, and future match ups he will need if he wishes to get back to the UFC.

Cody Bollinger vs. Andre Harrison

Over the past few years Bollinger has been developing into a top athlete. He has fought under Bellator MMA, and World Series of Fighting. In his last six fights he has won four of them. The two losses he received where handed to him by Shahbulat Shamhalaev and Marlon Moraes. Both of those opponents are top notch, but it’s tiime for Bollinger to prove that he is learning from his mistakes and elevating his game. His Opponent Harrison is currently undefeated in his eight fight professional mma career, but he isn’t as well known as Bollinger. Harrison has fought regionally and done well, but a dominant win over Bollinger will show that he is an elite fighter and he will be rewarded with more fights in the future that will move him closer to his goals.Both men have a lot to prove and that could generate a great fight.

Pat Healy vs. Kurt Kinser

Healy is probably the biggest name on the entire card. He built his reputation fighting in many organizations including Strikeforce and the WEC. When Strikeforce was acquired by Zuffa, LLC he was brought into the UFC. His first fight in the Octagon was against Jim Miller, in Newark, NJ. He entered enemy territory, and looked great. Unfortunately, he tested positive for marijuana and the victory was overturned to a no contest. From there he ended up losing four straight to some of the biggest names in the lightweight division. He took one fight with a small organization, got his hand raised and now he has arrived at Titan where he certainly hopes to build himself back up and get back to his former employer.  His opponent, Kinser, is a dangerous young fighter. Kinser has been fighting since 2007, but he only has eight fights. He is undefeated and he has gone to decision only once. If he can defeat Healy, that would do wonders for his stock, but if he could finish him it would elevate Kinser even further.

Titan FC 33 takes place Friday, March 20, 2015, from Mobile, Alabama and will be aired live and free on CBS Sports Network.
