Despite marijuana charge, WSOF still plans to book Miguel Torres vs. Tyson Nam
Bantamweight Miguel Torres' recent bust for marijuana possession hasn't deterred his promoter's plans for his career.
World Series of Fighting President Ray Sefo told MMAjunkie.com that Torres (40-6) will still fight Tyson Nam (12-5) "if they both want it to happen."
Sefo discussed the plans today's media call in advance of Friday's WSOF 5 event in Atlantic City, N.J.
"As far as I know, Tyson definitely wants that fight," Sefo ssaid. "So that's a good fight. We all make mistakes, and Miguel has obviously run into a situation, and we'll support him. He's still fighting for World Series of Fighting."
Torres is due in court in October to answer for a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession, according to a rep with his management company, Authentic Sports Management. The Marshall County (Ind.) Sheriff's Department arrest him this past month, and on the same day, Torres posted a $1,500 bond.
If convicted, the former WEC champ faces one year in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000.
