The HDNet-televised Titan Fighting Championships return Friday night with the company’s 17th installment.

In anticipation of the show, which features the MMA return of former WWE star Bobby Lashley, we take a look at a TFC 16 fight between UFC vet Rich Clementi and local prospect Aaron “Daddy Long Legs” Derrow.

The lightweight bout provided one of the night’s most shocking finishes.

Each week HDNet and MMAjunkie.com release a new and exclusive fight from the ever-growing HDNet Fights video library. Stunning knockouts, slick submissions, shocking finishes and legendary brawls are the norm for this weekly feature.

Clementi vs. Derrow is no exception.

Clementi (39-17-1) entered the January bout much more experienced and with a busy 2010 fight schedule in which he went 4-2. A former member of the Navy Seabees, the Louisiana-based gym owner took the fight on short notice while hoping to kick off his 2011 campaign in successful fashion.

But he first had to get by Missouri submission specialist Derrow (9-2), whose lanky frame has provided a number of triangle-choke and rear-naked-choke victories. Clementi represented his most notable opponent to date.

Would the veteran pull of the victory, or would Derrow secure the upset?

Check out the embedded clip for the answer.
