    Default With Titan FC's blessing, Ben Saunders returns to UFC

    With Titan FC's blessing, Ben Saunders returns to UFC
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/8/7/...returns-to-ufc
    Another Titan FC fighter is headed to the UFC.

    Ben Saunders was scheduled to fight Jose Landi-Jons for the inaugural Titan FC welterweight title on Aug. 22, however, that fight is now off, as Saunders, who fought for the UFC from 2007 to 2010, has agreed to return to the organization, according to Titan FC COO Lex McMahon.




    Titan FC gave Saunders its blessing to head back to the UFC after Landi-Jons ran into issues securing a visa to fight in the United States, which forced him to withdraw from the bout just hours after it was announced that he would be replacing the injured Matt Riddle in the title fight.

    While Titan struggled to find a suitable replacement for Landi-Jons, the UFC offered Saunders a chance to return to the promotion, and he took it. Titan's contracts have a "Zuffa clause," which allows fighters to walk away from the promotion in order to sign with the UFC, however, if a fight is within 30 days, Titan must agree to the fighter leaving the promotion, and in this case, Titan did just that.

    "We wish Ben all the best," McMahon said. "No one is a bigger Ben Saunders fan than me, and I want him to see him do great in the UFC. Our motto will always be, 'Fans, Fighters First.''

    Nice, an exciting fighter who can really add to these cards if given the right matchup. He's still relatively young and two of his three losses since his UFC cut(which I still think was wholly premature when you look at guys who have been given far longer reprieves) are to Douglas Lima, which is nothing to snicker at....Bellator was silly to let him go.

    Always been a huge fan on Ben. Hes the only fighter I can ever recall getting released and actually being sad about it.

    I was a fan of Davis when Saunders KO'd him so fuck that guy...

    But yeah if I set my grudge aside, I'm actually a pretty big fan of Killa B and I'm glad he's back in the UFC!

    I don't dislike ben at all but question the idea of signing a guy who lost 3 times 2 by ko to Lima with the last being pretty bad I his most recent fight, in the "minor leagues" of bellator.

    I'm assuming he was a cheap get. Not particularly excited for it though.
