TPF 33: Results & Recap

Thirty-three events in the memory bank, and Tachi Palace Fights (TPF) continues to intrigue MMA fans for the future.

At TPF 33, the promotion attempted to crown a new champ at 135-pounds, sifted out which heavyweights will meet at TPF 34 for the title, and reminded its audience, either sitting inside the Tachi Palace Casino and Hotel’s Bingo Hall or streaming the show live on YouTube, of the region’s wealth of experience in the sport.

Though two bantamweights, Rolando Velasco and Rodrigo LIma, entered the TPF cage to claim ownership of the vacant TPF Bantamweight Title, Lima, unfortunately, forfeited himself from earning a twelve-pound trophy around his waist because he didn’t reach the necessary limit at the scale.

Along with sorting out the top of the heap in a lighter weight class, TPF’s executives pieced together a four-man tournament to determine who would compete for TPF’s heavyweight strap at TPF 34. Mohammed Usman and Mitchell Sipe, highly-touted prospects, finished their opposition in the first-frame and met face-to-face before doing so again in early 2018.

NorCal MMA’s Performances of the Night

The front office at Tachi Palace Fights (TPF) finalized their upcoming event—TPF 33, a mid-week melee set for November 2, 2017, which is so stacked with talent: MMA enthusiasts are clamoring for the curtain to close on the weekend.

Cody Garbrandt Really Did Drop TJ Dillashaw in Practice

Actions speak louder than words, and the UFC’s Bantamweight Champion, Cody ‘No Love’ Garbrandt, stamped every one of his syllables leading into UFC 217 with a bold exclamation point after releasing footage of his knockdown of former teammate, and current contender, TJ Dillashaw.

By releasing this undocumented, until now, sparring session, all the sticks-and-stones Dillashaw claimed Garbrandt was throwing were shattered into splinters and gravel with a heavy right hand.

Adding insult to a concussive injury, Garbrandt recommended the UFC’s President, Dana White, should prepare the bonus check he intends to collect on November 4, 2017 after defending his 135-pound title.
