Tachi Palace Fights Validation Report


On September 7th Tachi Palace Fights presented their Validation card. The event featured mostly quick but exciting finishes with some fighters with serious "big show" potential. Several fights however were marred by the embarrassing referee job by Marcos Rosales. He let several fights go much longer than they should and risked injury to fighters, the most blatant being when Antonio Duarte clearly tapped out to Rolando Velasco's guillotine, Rosales missed the tap and then when Duarte was clearly unconscious it still took Rosales way to long to stop it. A good night of fights and sadly the most talked about thing is an incredibly shameful performance by a referee.
