Tyson Nam Done with Bellator, Signs with World Series of Fighting

Bellator announced today that they declined to match an offer to Tyson Nam (12-4), who knocked out the company's current bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas (14-3) over the summer. Nam has since signed with the new upcoming promotion World Series of Fighting.

"Bellator received the offer for Tyson Nam's next fight from a new promotional group [The World Series of Fighting], and we are not going to match that offer," CEO Bjorn Rebney to MMA Junkie Radio. "We wish Tyson good luck as he moves forward."

It's not confirmed if Nam will fight on the November 3 debut show.

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