A former Ultimate Fighter champion has found a home in the Titan Fighting Championships.
Efrain Escudero, the TUF 8 lightweight season winner, has signed with the company and will debut against E.J. Brooks on August 22 at TFC 29 in Fayetteville, N.C., new TFC COO Lex McMahon announced on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.
Escudero (22-8), a native of Sonora, Mexico who now lives in Tempe, Ariz., defeated Philipe Nover to win TUF 8 back in 2008. He had a pair of stints in the UFC, the last one ending after a decision loss to Mac Danzig at UFC 145.
Since then, Escudero has made the rounds, competing in RFA, Bellator, and myriad independent promotion. He has won four out of his past five fights, including a TKO win over Juha-Pekka Vainikainen in his last fight in March in Sweden.
Brooks (7-3), a 28-year old from Illinois, is a former Bellator and RFA competitor. He’s dropped his past three fights after winning the first seven of his career.
