Titan Fighting Championship returns on Thursday, July 23rd with Titan FC 62. This marks the promotion’s third event since their May return after COVID-19 related hindrances. This marks back to back events at the InterContinental Hotel Miami for Titan FC. Welterweights Jared Gooden (16-4) and Trent McCown (8-4) top the marquee and the card will broadcast on UFC Fight Pass.
“As we continue to navigate promoting events during the pandemic era, Titan remains committed to putting on the most entertaining fight cards possible,” said Titan FC COO Lex McMahon. “Titan FC 62 features some great fights including the return of Titan FC Kickboxing and barn burner of a main event brawl between Jared Gooden and Trent McCown.”
McMahon continued, “Titan continues to be focused on promoting the best events possible while doing so in a safe manner. We will continue to focus on the health and safety of our athletes and crew by promoting events with no audience in attendance in accordance with our detailed safety plan and testing protocol which has been approved by appropriate governmental agencies and authorities.”

“Nite Train” Gooden looks for his first W under the Titan FC banner. He previously dropped a unanimous decision to Michael Graves when the two fought for the then-vacant Titan FC interim welterweight title in March 2019. What followed was a quick loss to Bruno Oliveira in June of the same year. The 30-year-old McCown is a neophyte in Titan FC but has a decade of pro-MMA experience (turned pro in 2010).
In the co-main event, unbeaten featherweight phenom Muhammadjon Naimov (4-0) returns to the Titan FC cage for the fourth time. This time, it’s opposite Kobe Bowen (2-0) in a bout at 145-pounds. Naimov strung together three victories during his 2019 campaign with two of the wins coming via first-round finish.
