Isaac Vallie-Flag will be fighting at Titan FC 34 on July 18, but the road leading to this point has been an interesting one. Vallie-Flag started out his professional career 3-3. After starting 3-3, Vallie-Flag went on to win eleven of his next twelve fights. The one fight he did not win was a draw. After his run of eleven wins, Vallie-Flag got the call to the UFC.

In the UFC, Vallie-Flag won his UFC debut by split decision over Yves Edwards. However, after his UFC debut victory, Vallie-Flag did not have the success he was hoping for. Vallie-Flag went on to lose his next three fights in the UFC and was released from the top organization in MMA. Vallie-Flag talked about his UFC release.

“I was pretty bummed out about it,” Vallie-Flag told The MMA Corner. “I lost the place I wanted to be and I really did not like it. If I kind of laid over and died then I would have looked at it as a negative thing, but I took some stuff away from it that I needed to improve on and went from there.”

After his UFC release, Vallie-Flag went on to win his next fight against Travis Coyle in the first round. After that victory, Vallie-Flag then signed with Titan FC. Vallie-Flag talked about his decision to sign with Titan FC.

“They called and offered me a fight and I said yes,” explained Vallie-Flag about his decision to sign with Titan FC. “They are a good organization and I am happy to be there. They run a good show and it was kind of a no-brainer to sign with them.”

Titan FC recently signed a deal with UFC Fight Pass to broadcast their fights. This is a deal that many of the Titan FC fighters were happy about because of the exposure it will bring them for their potential UFC chances. Vallie-Flag talked about the Titan FC and UFC Fight Pass deal.

“I am happy to be on Fight Pass because people are going to see my fights a little bit more,” said Vallie-Flag. “I think it will be better for sponsors. For me personally, I am happy that people can see what I do after my UFC career.”

Vallie-Flag will be taking on Jason Witt at Titan FC 34. Witt is 6-2 in his career and will be looking to knock off a former UFC fighter to add to his own resume. Vallie-Flag talked about the upcoming fight against Witt.

“Jason is a tough guy,” said Vallie-Flag. “He does not have the biggest record and I know he has a couple early losses, but looking at him, he is a pretty dynamic striker. He is a decent wrestler and he hits hard. I do not think that the fact that he only has eight losses means anything. I am not letting that get to me. He is a pretty dangerous person and his last fight was a knockout.”

Vallie-Flag will be taking on Witt on the first Titan FC fight on UFC Fight Pass. Vallie-Flag talked about why fans should tune in to watch Titan FC 34 on July 18.

“We are going to put on a good show, Vallie-Flag said. Top to bottom, that whole Titan card is good. Pat Healy vs. Mike Ricci at the top, which I think is a pretty cool matchup. They are both ex UFC guys and they are both real talented fighters. There are guys on there that come to fight every time.”

After Vallie-Flag explained why fans should tune in to watch Titan FC 34 on UFC Fight Pass I had to ask him about wanting to get back to the UFC. Vallie-Flag is a guy that brings it every time he fights. He has never been knocked out in his career and is always going to give it everything he has. Vallie-Flag talked about making it back to the UFC.

“You know, everybody keeps talking about me getting back to the UFC,” said Vallie-Flag. “My big goal right now is to not look farther than Jason Witt. It is great that Titan is making the steps they are making with UFC Fight Pass, but really I need to just concentrate on this fight. I think a lot of fighters look at Titan or the smaller organizations with the affiliation with the UFC as a stepping stone and they forget that they need to win the fights first.”

Vallie-Flag will look to win his fight first on July 18 at Titan FC 34 on UFC Fight Pass against Jason Witt.
