Titan Fighting Championships 27 undergoes changes to fight card due to visa issues


Titan Fighting Championships are set to debut on CBS Sports Network this Friday, February 28th in Kansas City, with Titan FC 27, but some unfortunate news was announced today to two of their fighters scheduled on the card. Flyweight Pedro Nobre (15-1-2) and featherweight Gleristone “Toninho Furia” Santos (25-4) have encountered problems with their visas, and thus have been removed from this Friday’s card.

Brazilian Pedro Nobre was scheduled to fight on the main card on CBS Sports Network against Bill Friday (4-2). And Brazilian Gleristone Santos was scheduled to face Kalvin Hackney (12-3). Replacements have been found for both fights, Kenneth Porter (4-1) will now face Bill Friday. And Jeff Robbins will now face Kalvin Hackney, both cards will be on the prelims of TFC 27.

As a result, the fight between Anthony Guiterrez (4-0) vs Charlie Dubray (12-8) have been bumped up to the main card.

Both Nobre and Santos have been rescheduled to fight on the next card at TFC 28.
