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.
