Titan FC’s light heavyweight division is about to get some extra name value as K-1 Star and It’s Showtime champion Tyrone Spong has been added to the ranks of the promotion’s 205 lb. weight class. The Dutch kickboxer announced today that he will be making his MMA debut with the Kansas City-based promotion as well as making the trek down to light heavyweight.
“The King of The Ring” holds an impressive kickboxing record of 68-6-1 with one no contest. A move to the Blackzilians team in Boca Raton has seen Spong train with the likes of Rashad Evans, Alistair Overeem, and Anthony Johnson, which will certainly aid the Dutchman in making the transition. Spong will make his MMA debut at Titan FC on November 2, which takes place in Hammond, Indiana. No opponent official has been set for the kickboxer’s debut.
