Live fights to return to Tachi Palace
Live fights will return this year to to Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino, on the Santa Rosa Rancheria reservation near Lemoore, Calif. The casino’s tribal council has voted to hold events this Summer and Fall, as well as four more shows in 2014.
The decision represents a turnaround from the council’s previous vote this past December, which resulted in the cancellation of TPF 16 on Feb. 21, and discontinued plans to hold further shows for the foreseeable future.
The venue joined the MMA business in 2001 by hosting 22 of the first 24 WEC events.
The casino then began hosting Palace Fighting Championship events and served as the home of PFC for 17 of the organization’s first 19 shows before the promotion shuttered its doors in May 2009.
TPF was then formed just two months later, and has since held 15 shows
