As Elton John said in the 1973 hit song, “Saturday night’s alright for fighting”, and fighting there shall be right here on FloCombat with Cage Titans Combat Night 2.

The event will take place at the Palace of Cage Titans, Plymouth Memorial Hall in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and will feature a night full of combat sports competition -- from grappling superfights, to muay thai bouts and, of course, MMA.

For those who are UFC-centric MMA fans, UFC 242’s main card kicks off at 2 p.m. EST. So when the dust settles in Abu Dhabi, you can take a quick power nap and get ready for a night of New England combat sports action. Here are the top-3 MMA fights to watch this Saturday at Cage Titans Combat Night 2.

Watch LIVE on FloCombat at 6 p.m. EST

Jasmine Jasudavicius vs. Kylie O’Hearn

This is going to be one heck of a fight in the women’s flyweight division as Canadian Jasmine Jasudavicius heads to the US once again to take on Plymouth’s own Kylie O’Hearn. 

Jasudavicius may only be 1-0 as a pro fighter, but she is an absolute natural. In fact, the 30-year-old said in a recent interview with The Scrap that she stumbled upon the sport, essentially, by accident without any combat sports experience whatsoever back in 2016. She traveled with her boyfriend, and now coach, to a seminar and immediately took to the sport. Since then, Jasudivicius put together a 4-0 amateur record before making her pro debut at WFC 109 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in July, where she finished the fight in the first round via a rear naked choke. Having trained with the likes of Randa Markos in Joanne Calderwood, Jasudavicius is no stranger to fighting on enemy territory and she is ready for a war at Plymouth Memorial Hall.

Standing in front of her with a rowdy capacity crowd behind her will be Kylie O’Hearn making her third professional appearance. After a 3-1 amateur career, O’Hearn made her pro debut at last August’s Cage Titans 40 event, submitting Tricia Cicero via rear naked choke in the second round. The flyweight would return to action in January -- fighting two weight classes up -- to face Jesse Miele at CES 54. 

O’Hearn showed her grit and toughness throughout the fight against the much larger Miele and would be finished via TKO in the third round. Having covered that event in person, those of us on media row could not help but rave about the determination the 22-year-old showed in her last fight. Now that she is back at her natural weight class, O’Hearn will look to pick up her second pro win on Saturday night against one of the rising prospects in Canadian MMA. 

Billy Goff vs. Jonathan Pico

In a professional welterweight bout that has show-stealing potential written all over it, Billy Goff enters the Cage Titans cage for the first time as a professional as he meets Hawaiian implant Jonathan Pico. 

Goff is no stranger to competing for Cage Titans having two amateur fights for the promotion. The 21-year-old made his pro debut in January against Armus Guyton at Reality Fighting’s New Year’s Bash 3 event, picking up a second round finish via strikes. Goff would continue his winning ways a little more than a month later picking up a unanimous decision victory over Ryan Hardy Evans at Bellator 215 in Connecticut. The Dexter MMA trained Goff returned to the Reality Fighting cage in June losing his first pro fight via unanimous decision to Camron Lochinov. He will now look to get back in the win column this Saturday night in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Pico will return to action for the first time since April 2017. Now a member of the South Shore Sportfighting team in Massachusetts, Pico lost his pro debut to PFL star Ray Cooper III at X-1 World Events 46 in Hawaii. He's described by teammate Chris O’Brien as “a savage and someone to keep an eye on” as he makes his New England debut against a fellow exciting fighter in Goff. Make sure you have your sunglasses handy because fireworks are expected when these two step in the cage this Saturday night.

Chris O’Brien vs. Mohammad Al Kinani

In a battle of two of the best amateur lightweights in New England, Chris O’Brien will take on the surging Mohammad Al Kinani.

O’Brien hasn’t competed since suffering the first loss of his career last summer to Western MA standout Matt Bienia at Cage Titans 40, losing his amateur lightweight title in the process. In a recent interview with FloCombat, “The Bearded Dragon” needed to step away from the sport for a bit to find himself and overcome some mental health issues. When O’Brien heard from Cage Titans owner Mike Polvere that Al Kinani was in need of an opponent, the competitive juices began to flow and the 29-year-old jumped at the chance to face one of the region’s best up and comers. The former amateur lightweight champion has finished al four of his victories inside of two rounds and predicts he will do the same in his first fight in nearly 13 months.

Al Kinani will make his Cage Titans debut on Saturday night, but he is certainly no stranger to the New England MMA scene. Al Kinani has won six out of his seven fights, finishing four of those victories via strikes in the first round. After losing the first fight of his career at Combat Zone 66 last June, Al Kinani picked up a first-round TKO victory over Clifford Redman at NEF 36 in November, and a unanimous decision win over John McAndrews at Combat Zone 69 in February. This will be a true battle between two of New England’s best at 155-pounds. 

Cage Titans returns to action this Saturday night with Combat Night 2 and it will be an event you won’t want to miss. If you’ve seen Cage Titans events in the past, you know that the crowd will be going bananas, the action will be fast and furious, and the competitors will be looking to make the highlight reels across the sport. Check out all of the combat sports action, LIVE on FloCombat, beginning at 6 p.m. EST. 

Youssef Zalal: The Morrocan Cowboy

Donald Cerrone is someone of a folk hero with MMA fans. In his first year with the UFC, Cerrone stepped into the octagon an astounding five times, picking up four performance bonuses along the way. While he’s begun to slow down just a bit in his advanced age, there isn’t a lack of people who have adopted that same mentality.
