The Palace Fighting Championship on Thursday announced the full line-up for its Sept. 26 event at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif. The main event features Ultimate Fighting Championship and Pride veteran Phil Baroni squaring off with popular Mexican fighter Olaf Alfonso.

The fight will be Baroni's third since making the move down to the 170-pound division following a three-fight skid in his last three middleweight bouts. He has defeated both of his opponents thus far at welterweight.

Alfonso is a popular fighter in Lemoore area, winning his two most recent bouts. He is trying to stay on track following a six-fight nosedive spanning most of 2005-2007.
