Tachi Palace Fights middleweight champion Leopoldo Serao and flyweight ace Ulysses Gomez each made weight Thursday ahead of their respective title bouts at Friday’s TPF 8 “All or Nothing.”

Both titleholders will make their first defenses, as Serao (182.5) puts his belt on the line against nine-time UFC veteran David Loiseau (184.5) and Gomez (125), who came in one pound over on his first attempt, but hit the limit on try No. 2, clashes with dangerous up-and-comer Darrell Montague (125). The event takes place at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif.

On the undercard, the man widely considered the world’s top 125-pound fighter, Jussier “Formiga” da Silva (125), will make his second appearance under the Tachi banner when he takes on World Extreme Cagefighting veteran and newly-minted flyweight Ian McCall (126). The WEC vet was over the limit initially, but later his his mark. UFC lightweight veterans John Gunderson (156.5) and Fabricio Camoes (155) will meet Dominique Robinson (156.5) and Steve Lopez (155.5), respectively.
