After the withdrawal of Olympic bronze medalist, Alexis Vila, Tachi Palace Fights sign current King of the Cage flyweight champion Mamoru Yamaguchi to fight John Dodson at TPF 9. The event is expected to take place on May 5th at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California.

Mamoru Yamaguchi earned the King of the Cage flyweight title after beating Frank Baca with a second round rear naked choke back in January of last year. He then defended the title against young prospect, Greg Guzman with a TKO stoppage in August. Yamaguchi returned to Japan to face Furnihiro Kitahara, in which he earned a stunning first round head-kick KO.

John Dodson makes his Tachi Palace debut following a victory over previously undefeated John Moraga at Nemesis Fighting down in the Dominican Republic. The victory marked Dodson’s fourth win in five fights, only being defeated by current Palace Fighting and Ultimate Warrior Challenge champion, Pat Runez.
