A busy weekend in MMA got started early with last night’s Tachi Palace Fights 15: Collision Course. The nine bout fight card got the jump on the others this weekend streaming live on Sherdog from inside the Tachi palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California.
Tachi Palace Fights 15 was headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Angel DeAnda and Anthony Ruiz for the vacant TPF 205 pound title. From the opening bell the fight was all DeAnda and the MMA veteran Ruiz displayed a granite chin but was no match for the fighter nicknamed “The Dream”. The victory for DeAnda was his 10th in his last 11, while Ruiz drops his second consecutive fight.
In the Tachi Palace Fights 15 co-main event, Rolando Velasco snapped the six fight winner streak of Carson Beebe with a decision victory. The fighter spent a large chunk of the fight on the ground with Velasco scoring takedowns in every round, while Beebe was only able to secure one in the final round. All three judges saw the fight two rounds to one in favor of Velasco who improved to 8-2.
