Main Event – Manny Bermudez (9-0, SSSF) vs. Joe Pearson (45-31-1, Miletich Fighting Systems)

After dismantling Tony Gravely in the 1st round of the main event in our last show, Manny Bermudez (9-0) of SSSF returns to face 75 plus fight veteran Joe Pearson (45-31-1) of Miletich Fighting Systems. After finishing seven of his nine opponents, all in the first round, Bermudez has made it difficult to find an opponent in the Northeast willing to step up at bantamweight to face him. Pearson, who has fought from flyweight to featherweight will travel from the Midwest and stepped up in an attempt to thwart Bermudez’s bid to the UFC and make the claim of handing Bermudez his first lost.

With Bermudez’s sight set on the next level of his career, expect him to be laser focused on making Pearson another first round finish victim. While Pearson has no intention of coming to the northeast just to be that 10th victory, he will have a wealth of experience on his side when he enters our cage for the first time in hope to capturing a victory and shocking the New England crowd.

On Saturday, June 17th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, newly crowned Cage Titans AM Lightweight Champion Zach DiSabatino of South Shore Sportfighting will make his first title defense against Gerald Meuse of Sityodtong. Since starting his career, DiSabatino has been a total wrecking ball enroute to winning every one of his fights as well as the title, earning three finishes in four outings, two of those being KO’s in the very first round. Cage Titans XXXIV will mark his 4th consecutive event and 3rd fight total already in 2017 so you know he will be looking to get in and out quickly and be ready for the next event. By no means will this be an easy first title defense though when he stands across the cage from Meuse, who is as equally well rounded as the champ, turning in dominant performances in his cage appearances winning all his fights by finish, 3 of those by knockout. If you needed any more reason to get excited for this fight, Meuse was actually in the corner of the man DiSabatino beat for the title last event and by the time they were exiting the cage, Meuse was already seeking out the matchmaker to challenge DiSabatino so you know both sides are extra motivated for this showdown.

Undercard (Amateur Bouts)

Ron Marshall (1-3 Nostros MMA) vs. Fabio Cherant (2-1, Juniko)

On Saturday, June 24th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Juniko’s Fabio Cherant (2-1) will look to avenge his only loss against Team Anubis’ Ron Marshall (1-4). In their first match-up we saw both fighters throwing bombs from the start of round one through the final bell, which Marshal walked away with the unanimous decision victory. Cherant will surely be motivated to prove that he is the more evolved fighter and ready to walk away the victor as Marshall will look to put in another winning performance, and begin his own winning  streak. If their first fight is any implication of what their second meeting will deliver then you will not want to move from your seat.

 

On Saturday, June 17th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Fabio Cherant will look to avenge the only loss of his young career against Ron Marshall. In their first match-up we saw both fighters throwing bombs from the start of round one until the final bell with Marshall walking away with the unanimous decision victory. Since then, Cherant won his next two fights and will surely be motivated to show that he is the more evolved competitor. As for Marshall, he wants to prove once again that he is the better fighter and plans on sending Cherant home disappointed for a second time. At the end of the day, if their first fight is any implication of what their second meeting will deliver, then you will not want to move from your seat when these guys enter the cage on fight night!

Chris Sniger (1-1, SBG East) vs. Antoine caparotta (3-1, SSSF)

On Saturday, June 17th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Chris Sniger (1-1) of SBG East battles Antoine Caparotta (3-1) who will represent SSSF in a showdown set at a catchweight of 150 lbs. Sniger enters the bout following an impressive TKO victory in the very 1st round last August, while Caparotta is making a quick turnaround from his last fight at Cage Titans 33 which he was also victorious by 1st round TKO. Each fighter has showed they are resilient and have the heart to match their skill making this bout one that will not likely reach the final bell as both fighters have yet to make it out of the second round, win or loss.

 

 

Trevor Gudde (2-0, Florian BJJ) vs. Marty Navis (2-1, Lauzon MMA)

On Saturday, June 17th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, Florian Martial Arts Center‘s Trevor Gudde (2-0) steps into the cage for the first time this year to take on the active Marty Navis (2-1) of Lauzon MMA, which he is making his second Cage Titans appearance of 2017. Guude was impressive in his first cage appearance earning a second round TKO while in his second bout from November he fought a tough opponent and squeaked out a split decision win. Since his only defeat, Navis has finished his last two opponents in impressive fashion, both by TKO. Factoring each fighter’s attributes and skill level, and knowing that they both are vying to move their win streaks to three fights, expect them to bring the same level of intensity we saw from them in their previous bouts, aiming at earning the amateur fight or performance of the night honors.

LaNeisha Vinson (4-2-1, Warrior Warehouse) vs. Hillarie Rose (3-3, USMMA)

On Saturday, June 17th at Plymouth Memorial Hall, LaNeisha Vinson (4-2-1) of the Warrior Warehouse returns to our cage from South Carolina to battle USMMA’s Hilarie Rose (3-3) in a strawweight clash. After winning over some of the Northeast fans because of her incredible war against Kylie O’Hearn, Vinson is returning back to our cage for the second consecutive event. She will be also returning back to strawweight, which best suits her frame, as she faces Rose, another natural 115 pounder. After nearly 15 months away from the cage, and longer than a year and a half from fighting in our cage, Rose returns to improve on the unanimous decision win in her last bout and show that this is her hometown crowd. This match-up, as most of the women fights have a tendency to do, could be the bout that has you shaking your head the following day in pure amazement of what these ladies can do inside of the cage.

Peter Barrett (8-0, Juniko/Sityodtong)  vs. Drew Morais (6-4, Fuse MMA) via SnapChat @CageTitans 

On Saturday June 17th, at the Plymouth Memorial Hall, undefeated fan favorite “Slippery Pete’ Peter Barrett (8-0) of Juniko/Sityodtong returns to the cage since January when he was victorious against Vince McGuiness after a grueling 3 round war. His opponent, Drew ‘All Day’ Morais (6-4) representing Fuse MMA will enter the Cage Titans’ cage for the first time riding the momentum of a two fight win streak, 3-1 in his last four fights with two first round submission victories.

 

Barrett will be deadset on getting his 6th first round finish after going to decision for the first time in his pro career while Morias will look to continue putting together the longest winning streak of his career at three fights, and handing the top ranked New England lightweight his first loss.

 

 

 

Frank Sforza (6-0, SSSF) vs. Jay Ellis (25-36, Team Knockout) via instagram @CageTitans

 

When Frank Sforza (6-0) of SSSF enters the cage Saturday June 17th, at the Plymouth Memorial Hall, it will mark consecutive events he would make a cage appearance after being away for two years. He will look to improve on his January unanimous decision victory when he faces Jay Ellis (25-36) of Team Knockout in a lightweight clash. Ellis is a 60 plus fight veteran and when he enters for the 2nd time the Cage Titans cage on June 17th, it will be for no less than the 5th time he has fought in 2017. Sforza has a big task ahead of him in front of his home crowd as he has fought all but two of his fights at or below 150 lbs. while his opponent has fought no lower than lightweight but as high as middleweight. Ellis, who has fallen victim to submissions, will have to defend off his Sforza’s persistent pace and dominating ground game to come away the victor.

 

 

Joe Giannetti (4-0, SSSF) vs. Vince McGuiness (5-6, Bang Muay Thai) via Facebook @CageTitans

 

This fight will keep the fans engaged from start to finish and could easily be viewed as the perfect example of Grappler vs. Striker when Joe Giannetti (4-0) of SSSF faces Vince McGuiness (5-6) of Bang Muay Thai. Giannetti, the  grappler, has made it known his disliking for McGuiness’s last opponent, Peter Barrett. Although McGuiness lost that fight the SSSF standout still views him as the “baddest dude around” at lightweight in New England.

 

McGuiness is returning to our cage after turning in an amazing 3-round striking performance in our main event at Cage Titans 32. He will likely have every intention of picking his opponent apart on the feet and avoid going to the canvass. It is clear by looking at Giannetti’s professional victories, all by first round submission, he will ultimately want to get the fight to the ground where he will be most dominant. This is a big step up in competition and test for the young Giannetti, while a victory for McGuinness adds to his buzz in the northeast and keeps him very relevant within the Cage Titans lightweight ranks.    

 

 

 

 

Amatuer Flyweight Title: (Champion) Josh Meehan (4-0, Juniko) vs. Jake Kasperowski (3-2-1, Redline) via Twitter @CageTitans

 

On Saturday June 17th, at the Plymouth Memorial Hall, Josh Meehan (4-0) of Juniko will defend his Cage Titans amateur flyweight title against Jake Kasperowski (3-2-1) who is representing Redline MMA. The Champ has shown he is a proven finisher winning all of his bouts prior to the final bell. Redline’s Jake Kasperowski is a very creative striker who was impressive in his last cage appearance. He showed off a well rounded game and finished his opponent by strong ground-n-pound in the 3rd round.

 

Both fighters are quite well rounded for this point in their amatuer careers so expect these flyweight to put in impressive performances regardless of where the fight takes place. With the contrast in styles, Meehan’s possible edge on the mat and Kasperowski’s perceived striking advantage, this title bout could be the show stealer.
