After an appeal filed to the California State Athletic Commission, the Tachi Palace Fights bout between Russ Miura and Isaac DeJesus has been motioned to “no decision.”

After Isaac DeJesus tested positive for Marijuana following his bout against Russ Miura at Tachi Palace Fights, the latter’s management team made an appeal last May 6 at the California State Athletic Commission. Then on Monday, the CSAC made the ruling to ‘No Decision’.

CSAC executive – George Dodd – explained that because the Tachi Palace Fights tournament had taken place, they could not rule a bout to no contest. Hence, the commission opted to call the bout a No Decision. Under Section 386 of the California Code of Regulations, the commission can overturn the decision in a fight. Based on the recently amended rules, a bout can be overturned in case a participant tested positive for a banned substance.

Fortunately, the motion was seconded and carried without further interruptions.
