Lemoore, Calif.,-based mixed martial arts promotion Tachi Palace Fights returns for the first time this year on Thursday with what supposed to be a championship doubleheader. The main event was slated to be lightweight champion Danny Navarro’s first defense of his title against Cain Carrizosa but at Wednesday’s weigh-ins, the challenger was overweight by several pounds.
Carrizosa was the first to step to the scale and he didn’t even come close to the 155-pound limit. A winner of three straight bouts after losing to Navarro at TPF 25, the Central Valley Combat Academy fighter weighed in at 159 pounds for his rematch. Navarro, meanwhile, has won four straight and is expecting to repeat his win over Carrizosa. However, the champ didn’t fair too much better as he tipped the scale at 156.4 pounds. Though they still will collide in the main event, it is no longer a title bout.
The promotion’s vacant flyweight title is still up for grabs in the co-feature as Casey Kenney will oppose with Alvin Cacdac. Kenney strolled to the scale and checked in officially at 125 pounds, as did Cacdac.
The action will be streamed live from Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino right here on Sherdog beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m.
