Andre Harrison Puts Titan Belt and Potential UFC Call on the Line

For undefeated Titan FC featherweight champion Andre “The Bull” Harrison, his 2015 went about as well as he could have wanted it.

In three fights last year, Harrison defeated much more experienced fighters like Cody Bollinger, Kurt Holobaugh, and Des Green.

“I feel they were all three quality wins,” Harrison told MMAWeekly.com. “They were definitely tough guys with solid names, so the fact that I can go in there against those guys and come out victorious meant a lot.

“I feel it pushed me up the rankings at featherweight and shows people that I can get in there and go with guys who are UFC and Bellator caliber.”

While Harrison is pleased with what his wins have done for his career, he still feels he’s yet to show his full potential in the cage.

“I don’t feel I went out there and did what I wanted to do,” said Harrison. “I feel there are a lot of things I could have done, should have done, but I didn’t necessarily do.

“I watch fights and every single time I notice something, so I get a little frustrated because I know I’m better than what I displayed. It’s frustrating not doing what you’re able to do.”

On Friday in Ridgefield, Wash., Harrison (11-0) will defend his Titan FC featherweight title against veteran Steven “Super” Siler (28-14) in the evening’s main event.

“I have to put solid pressure on him,” said Harrison of Siler. “You definitely want someone like him backing up. You don’t want him coming forward, feeling comfortable, and setting the pace. I just want to push the pace on him and make him have to adapt to what I’m doing.

“The key to victory is the same in every fight: everybody’s going to have something they’re good at, you just can’t let them get to their thing, and you have to make them worry about what you’re doing.”

Though he’s highly regarded by many in the MMA community, Harrison himself feels he’s accomplished something when he makes it to the next level.

“I don’t really think about it like it’s buzz,” said Harrison. “People say I should be in the UFC or I should be doing this, but I’m not there yet.

“I just try to go out there and put on a dominant performance and make the crowd, my teammates and my coaches happy. I definitely have to dominate people.”
