————————————————————————

WEC and UFC veteran Edgar Garcia will replace injured Jesse Forbes at Tachi Palace Fights 8 against Mike Moreno. The event takes place on February 18th at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California.

Edgar Garcia burst on to the the welterweight scene after knocking out former title contender Hiromitsu Miura in the first round of his WEC debut. When the WEC folded their welterweight division and Garcia was transfered to the UFC, he wasn’t able to duplicate the success. Garcia was given his release following back-to-back losses against Brad Blackburn and DeMarques Johnson. After a year-long break, Garcia returned to action and defeated Alejandro Velasquez with a second round triangle choke victory last December.

Mike Moreno returns to fighting after nearly two years away from fighting. Moreno last competed in Februray of 2009, when he defeated Bellator-vet Gary Padilla by unanimous decison.

Isaac DeJesus will defend his featherweight title against Russ Miura at Tachi Palace Fights 9. The event takes place on May 5th at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, California.

DeJesus defends his title for the first time since becoming Tachi Palace’s inaugural featherweight champ after defeating Nam Phan by TKO in the first round in February 2010. DeJesus has since lost two fights: one was to former WEC lightweight champion, Rob McCullough at a catchweight of 160-pounds, and the other was to Micah Miller who missed weight by several pounds.

Russ Miura will get a shot at the featherweight title in his TPF debut, but carries a five-fight win streak with him outside the promotion. Miura’s only professional loss came to the former flyweight “King of Pancrase” Mitsuhisa Sunabe in January 2006.
