Tyson Nam never fought for Bellator, but they left him with a headache. After he knocked out their bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas in a non-title fight at a charity show, Bellator informed Nam that they could match any offer proposed to him.
Nam was under the impression that he was released after two failed promises for a tournament spot. The entire process cost Nam some needed cash.
“I actually lost money because the tournament that they promised me, I had to go off and get medicals, get CAT scans, blood work done and it actually cost me money,” said Nam to Sherdog. “I was really upset that they would actually come back at me this way.”
The World Series of Fighting (WSOF) helped Nam settle his dispute with Bellator. He makes his debut for them at WSOF 2 against Marlon Moraes.
They are the co-main event of Saturday’s card, which airs on the NBC Sports Network. It comes from Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.
