This time around, the Florida-based promotion finds itself in the Dominican Republic for the first international TITAN FC show since TITAN FC 51: The Battle of Khazakhstan last December.
TITAN FC 57 features three championship fights, so if you have plans on Saturday night to go out somewhere, be it a dinner date, a movie, or dinner and a movie, call the person you need to call and cancel—and don’t delay on this, either.
You can watch Friday the 13th: Part VI: Jason Lives some other time—you’ve got fights to watch instead. Let’s break down the title fights one-by-one.
