Titan FC Adds To Roster, Signs Heavyweight Prospect Volkan Oezdemir

Volkan Oezdemir, who owns 10 finishes in his MMA career, has signed with Titan FC and will compete for the heavyweight title in September.

The promotion confirmed the signing with MMA Fighting, adding that Jorge Calvo, Will Starks and Carlos Hernandez have also signed deals.

Oezdemir (12-1) will face the winner of Jack May-Derrick Mehmen from Titan FC 40 next month for the belt. The title is up for grabs between May and Mehmen.

“(Titan CEO) Jeff [Aronson) and I, along with the entire team at Titan FC are committed to finding the best fighters around the globe and providing them a platform here in South Floride and on UFC Fight Pass to showcase their talents,” COO Lex McMahon said in a release. “Our most recent crop of signees clearly showcases our global view, which include athletes signed from Switzerland, Costa Rica as well as fighters who are IMMAF world champions. Finding the best young talent has always been part of our business model at Titan FC and we are extremely excited for the future of these rising stars.”

Calvo will take on Alexis Vila at that same August 5 card from Coral Gables, Florida.

Starks is a two-time IMMAF champion at welterweight, while Hernandez is the current IMMAF flyweight titleholder.
