With three mixed martial arts (MMA) events on tap for the same night, the viewing public would be forced to choose which show to watch on their televisions, splintering the potential audience.
Late Thursday evening, MMA Mania received an exclusive statement from Titan Fighting Championship CEO Jeff Aronson regarding his event.
Due to other organizations in the MMA industry who are obviously desperate to improve their ratings, Titan FC has decided to push back the start time of Titan FC 27 from 10pm EST to 11:30pm EST. These two other organizations both of whom decided to counter program our card weeks after we announced the date and time of our first event on the CBS Sports Network.
We believe that the positive attention we have garnered over the past few weeks has caused these organizations to make a knee jerk reaction. Due to the almost daily announcements, which include the signing of some of the top free agents and most coveted prospects in the world to our roster, these other companies decided to try and hinder our debut. In reality all they have done is shown how scared they are of Titan's presence and new regime.
This goes to show how selfish they are in only thinking about themselves while Titan has the fans & fighters best interests at heart. We have said all along that we are putting the fans & fighters first, something that is a belief and not just a motto.
True to our word we believe that pushing the start time back will allow the fans to view all of the televised MMA programming on the night of the 28th without conflict.
Make sure to tune in at 11:30pm EST to the CBS Sports Network for what is guaranteed to be the most exciting card of the evening.
Titan Fighting Championship, CEO
