Show 119 and move out the way…. THE CHAMPS ARE HERE!!! That’s right I didn’t say the champ, I said the CHAMPS!!! This show is loaded with the champ and two guys that are knocking on the door of stamping their name in the sport and looking to get a belt back around their waist. I wouldn’t sleep on this show either as it is the last show with our TUF14 correspondent. This show is loaded like a cash register on Black Friday.
Our first guest is the number one 125 pound fighter in the world! Tachi Palace Fights flyweight champ “Uncle Creepy” Ian McCall is back in the house to talk about having to pull out of his December 2nd main event bout at Tachi Palace Fights 11 and see how he is recovering from his injury. We will discuss when McCall thinks the UFC might add that 125 pound division and come calling for “Uncle Creepy”. All this and much more… Follow Uncle Creepy on Twitter at @Unclecreepymma.
This week’s second guest is a man that is no stranger to the shop or to having a title around his waist. Ulysses Gomez is stopping by to talk about his upcoming Tachi Palace Fights bantamweight title fight against Cody Gibson. We will have plenty to talk to Ulysses about from his win at TPF 4 where he won the first Tachi Flyweight Title, to announcing directly after the win that he was leaving for Bellator and their tournament. We will also talk about the frustration of winning his first fight in the Bellator tournament, to being forced to pull out due to an injury/illness, and coming back to Tachi and what this title shot means to him. You can follow Ulysses on Twitter at @uselessgomez.
In the second hour we got another man that wants a Tachi Palace Fights belt around his waist and on December 2nd he will get that shot. Isaac DeJesus is set to take on Bellator vet Georgi Karakhanyan for the vacated TPF Featherweight belt. Isaac hit a bump in the road after his last fight, but if I know Isaac it has only made him hungrier to get back in the cage and make a statement. We will talk to Isaac about what he did during his off time, how it feels to be able to come back to the Palace and be fighting for a title, and what it would mean for him to win this title after the layoff. Of course we will talk to Isaac about what he is looking to do after this fight, how long he is signed to TPF, and where he would like to be at this time next year.
I hate to say it, but this will be our last guest’s final show (for now at least)… If you don’t know who I’m talking about it’s Stephen Bass, our TUF 14 correspondent. This coming Wednesday will be the last show of the season, and we get to find out who makes it into the finals. We will talk to Stephen about if he would do this all again if given the chance, what he learned from the experience and the highs and lows for him on and off camera. Don’t miss it!
