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?

I don't blame Rebney at all but he has to give Nam an immediate title shot for this to be logical at all. Dantas got put to sleep. It's a risk promoters take. Most comparable situation I can think of is when Chuck got Ko'd by Rampage like what...8 years ago??? Man I'm getting old :)
