The fight card for TPF 13 "Unfinished Business" hit another snag on Monday, as an expected flyweight clash between Adam Rothweiler and Hector Sandoval [pictured] has fallen through, according to a promotion official.
Sandoval was tabbed as a replacement for Ulysses Gomez, who withdrew from the fight after discovering a boil on the back of his leg that turned out to be a staph infection. Although the new bout was announced last week, Tachi Palace officials informed Sherdog.com that Rothweiler never officially accepted the fight.
The promotion lost also lost its co-main event last week when Francisco Rivera pulled out of his matchup with Casey Olson to accept a spot on the May 15 UFC on Fuel TV 3 card.
TPF 13 “Unfinished Business” takes place at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Leemore, Calif. on Thursday and features a featherweight main event between former Bellator champion Joe Soto and ex- WEC competitor Chad George. The fight card streams live on Sherdog.com.
Rothweiler, a California native, has won three straight fights, most recently besting Dillion Croushorn in March. Sandoval has won four consecutive bouts since falling to Gomez in his professional debut in 2008.
