Tachi flyweight champ Darrell Montague welcomes Ian McCall fight, move to UFC
Most in-the-know MMA fans thought a meeting between Tachi Palace Fights champ Ulysses Gomez and Jussier da Silva was a sure thing, and the winner of that fight could claim the mantle of world’s greatest flyweight.
So much for those plans.
Montague took the 125-pound belt from Gomez this past Friday at Tachi Palace Fights 8, and McCall stole the highly regarded da Silva’s thunder. But the newly crowned champ today told MMAjunkie Radio that the alternative is just as good.
