    This is never explained, but in Chronicles it is stated that Demons cannot die outside the Twisting Nether, and it is implied that the Titans cannot enter the Twisting Nether, which is why Sargeras imprisoned them in the prison world Mardum.

    @Commander Javik the titan keepers were created with the sole purpose to guard and protect azeroth from any threats ( the old gods specifically). Instead of an army they had sargeras, who discounting azeroth was the most powerful titan. When they confronted him they expected that they will be able to convince him to abandon his crusade and return back to the pantheon. They were wrong.
