Montreal’s Mike Ricci battles Yoshiyuki Yoshida for the Titan FC championship



Former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alumni, Mike Ricci has earned himself a title shot at MMA veteran Yoshiyuki Yoshida at the next Titan FC event.

The news broke first via MMA Junkie.

The pair will duke it out for the Lightweight championship which will take place at a yet to be determined venue, and is expected to take place at the end of October or early November.

“I think Mike Ricci vs. Yoshida represents the ultimate progression in MMA,” Aronson told MMAjunkie. “We have Yoshida, who is one of the true living legends of the sport, who has never been hotter than he is today. He’s compiled a six-fight win streak and he’s going up against a young lion in Mike Ricci, who’s been nothing short of devastating since getting a reality check from the UFC. Yoshida is ready to prove to the world again that he can take out the most elite lightweights.”

Ricci is fresh off a decision win over UFC veteran George Sotiropoulos back in August.

Yoshida will be making his promotional debut, bringing in a six-fight win streak.
