With the most intriguing fighter they had scratched, French vs Krause is the new main event:
Former professional wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley (6-1) has been forced to withdraw from next week's Titan Fighting Championship 19 event due to personal reasons.
Titan Fighting Championship officials on Friday morning announced the heavyweight's removal from the card, simultaneously promoting a 160-pound catchweight fight between Clay French (18-6) and James Krause (12-3) to the evening's main event.
A female scrap between Tonya Evinger (8-5) and Olympic wrestling silver medalist Sara McMann (2-0).
Lashley is now expected to return to action at Titan Fighting Championship 20, which takes place Aug. 26.
"Unfortunately, with the things going on in Bobby's life right now, it was not the right time to have him fight," Titan CEO Joe Kelly stated. "Bobby will be the main event on the next Titan FC card on Aug. 26, which will take place in Kansas City and feature other top fighters such as L.C. Davis, Brian Davidson, Eric Marriott and many more."
Lashley had been expected to face Eddie Sanchez (12-5). It's currently unknown if the UFC vet will remain on board for the August date.
Big-show veterans French and Krause now headline the event, which takes place July 29 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The night's main card airs on HDNet.
"The fight between Krause and French is one that will be action-packed from the very start," Kelly stated. "These two guys are studs and the winner of this fight will find themselves on the top of everyone's radar."
Supporting bouts also announced include Rob Kimmons (23-7) vs. Brendan Seguin (22-17-1), Willian de Souza (1-1) vs. Joe Wilk (11-6), Marcio Navarro (7-5) vs. Nick Nolte (3-3), Daniel Gallemore (0-0) vs. Alex Huddelston (0-0) and Anthony Gutierrez (2-0) vs. Cody Land (4-0).
With the changes, the latest lineup for Titan Fighting Championship 19 includes:
* James Krause vs. Clay French
* Tonya Evinger vs. Sara McMann
* Rob Kimmons vs. Brendan Seguin
* Willian de Souza vs. Joe Wilk
* Marcio Navarro vs. Nick Nolte
* Daniel Gallemore vs. Alex Huddelston
* Anthony Gutierrez vs. Cody Land
