Jimmy "The Titan" Ambriz (born March 20, 1977) is an American professional mixed martial artist currently signed with Super Fight League. He is the former King of the Cage Super Heavyweight Champion. His nickname "The Titan" is for his enormous size and raw power. He is also a veteran of the WEC, Tachi Palace Fights, K-1 Hero's, Pancrase, the MFC, and DREAM.

Ambriz was expected to face former WWE and TNA wrestling star Bobby Lashley on January 30, 2010 at Strikeforce: Miami,[1] but for reasons unknown, Ambriz was dropped as an opponent for Lashley.[2]

Ambriz stepped in for injured Jesse Wallace to fight Mike Guidry at Tachi Palace Fights 7 on December 2 in the heavyweight division.[3]

He then faced Bulgarian Lyubomir Simeonov at the MAXFIGHT-21 event, in May 27, 2011.[4] After numerous punches Ambriz was forced to tap in the first round.

Ambriz then fought at the first Super Fight League event, SFL 1, and he fought against debuting Indian fighter Satish Jha. He won the fight via TKO (punches) 14 seconds into the first round. He was expected to return to the SFL at SFL 4 against Japan's Satoshi Ishii.[5] but due to the change in the organisation's structure the fight was scrapped. However at SFL 10, Ambriz stepped in for an injured Singh Jaideep to fight Mohamed Abdel Karim. Ambriz won via arm-triangle choke.
