By FCF Staff
Tachi Palace Fights has announced the line-up for the promotion’s upcoming “Deck the Halls” event, which will take place December 2nd, at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Leemore, California.
Headlining the card will be a light-heavyweight bout between UFC vet James Irvin and Jorge Oliveira. Irvin last competed on October 2nd, when he knocked out Angela DeAnda on a Rebel Fights card. Oliveira hasn’t fought since November, 2008, when he submitted Isaiah Larson.
In the card’s other main-event bout, renowned flyweight Jussier da Silva will take on Danny Martinez. The Shooto vet da Silva (7-0) last fought in August and worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Alexandre Pantoja. Martinez hasn’t fought since June, 2009, when the WEC vet stopped Nick Honstein under the King of the Cage banner.
The December 2nd card is also set to feature two championship bouts, as featherweight champion Isaac DeJesus will look to defend his title against Michah Miller, while Phil Collins will battle well traveled veteran John Alessio, for the vacant welterweight belt.
