Three months after his unexpected release from the UFC, Todd Duffee will begin the process of rebuilding his career.

HDNet Fights CEO Andrew Simon today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that Duffee is scheduled to appear on a Titan Fighting Championships event scheduled for Jan. 29 in Kansas City, Kan.

Duffee (6-1) meets "The Ultimate Fighter 10" cast member Abe Wagner (6-3) at the HDNet-televised event, according to Duffee's manager, Monte Cox.

It's Duffee's first fight since May, when he was upset at UFC 114 by Chicago fighter Mike Russow. After dominating the fight on the feet for two-plus rounds, the iron-jawed Russow landed a right hand that knocked Duffee out cold in one of the most dramatic come-from-behind wins in UFC history.

Duffee, who works with Grudge Training Center in Denver, was expected to take on Jon Madsen at UFC 121 but withdrew from the fight in August with a knee injury. Less than a month later, he received an email from the UFC notifying him that he had been cut by the promotion because of his loss to Russow.

Really? Cut because he lost to Russow?

You don't get cut for dominating a whole fight and getting KO'd at the end by an optimistic haymaker.

The explaination was simle I though....he was tossed for having a bad attitude and for making threatening comments to the UFC staff....I'd have fired him too.

I think he is completely overrated and people jumped on the bandwagon because he had a quick KO
