Tachi Palace Fights, the reincarnation of the once-popular Palace Fighting Championships, returns for its second show on Dec. 3, and the organization has secured recent UFC fighter Xavier Foupa-Pokam for the night's main event.

The French kickboxer takes on Mike Moreno in a middleweight bout.

Other notables on the card, which takes place at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif., include Diego Saraiva, Cyrille Diabate and Kyle Pimentel.

TPF began a new era earlier this month with its "Most Wanted" card, which featured Bellator champ Joe Soto's win over Mike Christensen and David Mitchell's controversial split-decision victory over UFC vet War Machine (formerly known as Jon Koppenhaver). Promoter Christian Printup recently took over sole control of the California-based organization, which has produced many notables who went to the UFC, WEC and other major promotions.
