Earlier today Titan FC announced the signing of Dhiego Lima and Carina Damm. Lima who was a runner up on season 19 of the Ultimate Fighter. Damm who's fought in Strikeforce, Shark Fights and other notable promotions. Both signings have fans buzzing and both Damm and Lima are expected to fight at Titan FC 39 on June 10th. We here at KneeBar MMA decided to do a little fantasy match making for these two fighters.
Dhiego Lima (11-4) VS Felipe Portela (10-2)
Lima who bounced back from a rocky UFC stint to defeat Antonio Trocoli at Legacy 53 in April. The win got Lima back on track and ready for another run in the welterweight division. Portela was a member of the Blackzillians on season 21 of the Ultimate fighter is riding a two fight win streak. Portela a Strikeforce vet is 0-1 in Titan with a loss coming back at Titan FC 31 to Hayder Hassan. Portela has an impressive victory over current UFC fighter Vicente Luque. The winner of this bout is sure to climb the ladder of the Titan FC Welterweight division , and possibly earn a shot at Belal Muhammad who won the title at Titan FC 38.
Carina Damm (23-12) VS Heather Bassett (4-2)
