Tyson Nam’s First WSOF Opponent Announced

Bantamweight sensation fighter Tyson Nam (12-4) has his fight lined up for the World Series of Fighting (WSOF). According to the company’s executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz, the winner of Miguel Torres (40-5) vs. Marlon Moraes (8-4) will challenge Nam.

Nam gained attention over the summer after knocking out Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas (14-3) for another promotion. It was followed with contract disputes between Nam and Bellator, before the company allowed him to sign for WSOF. According to MMA Fighting, it’s a four fight deal.

The first show takes place from the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and airs on NBC Sports Network.

The second show will take place in January. No exact date or location has been announced.
