Preview: UFC Fight Night, Titan FC Feature Kill Cliff Up-and-Comers!

Before we get to the UFC Fight Night card, there’s a Main Event fight with a Kill Cliff FC fighter going for a lightweight championship: Landon “The Lone Wolf” Quiñones puts his 6-1-1 record on the line against Yemi Oduwole (9-3-0) in Friday’s Titan FC 80. (You can see it on UFCFightPass.)

Quiñones is enjoying a hard-earned four-fight win streak and will be looking to extend that, and win the strap, at Miami’s FLX Arena on Friday.

For his part, “Yemster” Oduwole is also working on a four-fight win streak, his last coming in a late April RCWC fight. He’s ranked No. 2 of 22 active Kentucky Pro Welterweights.

UFC Fight Night: Hawes Meets Dolidze

Middleweights Kill Cliff FC’s Phil Hawes, 12-3 (4-1 in UFC), and Roman Dolidze, weighing in at an impressive 10-1-0, top the prelims of UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Allen on Saturday night in Las Vegas. You can see it on ESPN and ESPN+.

How the 6’0 Hawes’ wrestling will match up against 6’2 Dolidze’s MMA fighting style will depend on if Hawes can avoid the fate met by Dolidze’s last opponent, Kyle Daukaus last June. Dolidze dropped Daukaus in 1:13 of the first round of the UFC Fight Night bout with a resounding, thudding knee to the head that sounded more like he was kicking the turnbuckle.

Both fighters, lingering as they are just outside the top 15 at 185, are trying to get up the ladder to being the Main Event, not the prelims. From

Hawes is 12-3 overall and 4-1 in the UFC, including a win over Top 15 fighter Nassourdine Imavov. Last time out, he rebounded from his lone setback inside the Octagon with a lopsided pummeling of Deron Winn. A tremendous athlete with good wrestling and serious power, Hawes continues to feel like someone capable of making a run towards the top of the division.

After starting his UFC tenure with two wins at light heavyweight, Dolidze moved to middleweight and dropped a tepid decision to Trevin Giles. Since then, the Georgian competitor has rebounded with a pair of victories, grinding one out against Laureano Staropoli before scoring a first-round knockout win over Kyle Daukaus in his most recent appearance.

Bottom line, from “… and while the victor may not be assured a place in the rankings after this one, they could very well find themselves facing someone with a number next to their name when they return to action.”

KCFC’s Garrett Fosdyck Gets First Win

With an 0-4 record as a pro, KCFC’s Garrett Fosdyck only had one place to go: Up, and he did, with a victory over Dino Saracco last Saturday in the catchweight bout at Showcase MMA’s SMMA 28 at the Meadowview Conference Resort and Convention Center in Kingsport, Tenn. For the record, Saracco is now 2-11 as a pro.
