--THE LEAD-IN--

The day has finally come when Cage Titans 59 is happening!  They have another action packed card with some grappling and mma action.  They have put together a total of 15 matches which will be sure to please.  The show is completely sold out and I am tuning in on Spectation Sports to keep up with all the action.  Andy K did an excellent job on singing the national anthem and is the host with the most for the night.  The commentators are Andy K, Hilarie Rose and Rich Santiago which should be a blast to listen to during the night.  Please follow along as keep up with all the action.

--THE WRAP UP--

Cage Titans had another stellar show.  The fights were very well matched and not a lot of finishes this evening.  Props to Tyler Smythe for taking the tough fight with Mitch Raposo.  Love his heart and no doubt Smythe will be back stronger than ever.  The highlight for me was the Bohn and DiSab back and forth war.  Those fighters gave it their all in the cage and it was a pleasure to watch.  Another highlight for me was the main event with Ras Hylton surviving Round 1 with Battles on top and coming back in the second round and earning the tko victory.  Lastly, I would like to comment on the Hughes/Hixebaugh battle which ended in a no contest.  Definitely not the outcome anybody wanted and hopefully they get the chance to run it back when Cage Titans returns on July 22nd!
