Bellator chief Bjorn Rebney said his promotion was trying to give Tyson Nam an opportunity when it greenlighted a fight with bantamweight champ Eduardo Dantas – despite having released the fighter two months prior.
Now that Nam has capitalized on that opportunity, Rebney said, Bellator wants its own opportunity to match other offers the fighter has received since his stunning KO of Dantas.
"If you have an agreement with someone, and ultimately you give them a great opportunity … when that agreement is over, you have the right to match,"
- You gonna cry Bjorn? Do I see a little bit of moisture forming in the corner of your eye?
