Titan Fighting Championships returned to Fort Riley in Kansas for a Fight for the Troops show at Titan FC 23, which was headlined by Jorge Santiago taking on Justin Guthrie.

The Blackzilian’s, Jorge Santiago, who was cut from the UFC after being unable to win a fight in his second stint with the promotion in 2011, forced Justin Guthrie, who came into the fight on a five-fight winning streak, to tap out after locking in an inverted heel hook in round one.

The fight started on the feet, with both men trading shots. Guthrie was looking to land his big, looping overhand left before taking Santiago to the mat. Santiago scrambled and locked in the inverted heel hook from his back to earn the tapout at 1:34 of round one.

“That’s something I was training for,” said Santiago. “I’ve seen some of Guthrie’s fights and had planned for it. This is my last fight at 185 pounds. I want to drop to 170.”

Santiago now improves his record to 25-10 and is on a two-fight winning streak following two straight losses in the UFC against Brian Stann and Demian Maia.

In the co-main event, Joe “The Nose” Wilk picked up his 14th submission victory out of 17 wins with a guillotine choke against Josh Huber at 2:09 of the first round. Wilk improved his record to 17-6 with the win.

-Jorge Santiago def. Justin Guthrie via Submission (Inverted Heel Hook), Round 1 at 1:34
