Titan flyweight champion Juan Puerta (16-6) is set to defend his title against Gustavo Balart (8-1) at Titan FC 53. Juan Puerta won the vacant flyweight title at Titan 51 in December against Kazbek Ashimov. Puerta captured the belt via submission in the 3rd round.
Gustavo “El Gladiador” Balart has been looking to get redemption over his loss a year ago to Puerta, where he lost to a third round flying knee knock out. Since his loss to Puerta, he has gone on to win two fights earning him the chance to redeem himself and take the belt.
Titan FC’s 53 main card will be broadcast exclusively on UFC Fight Pass and will have all the preliminary action streamed live on Facebook.
