sexy_boxing_girls_16According to marijuana news, Bantamweight Miguel Torres recent bust for marijuana possession hasnt deterred his promoters 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 todays media call in advance of Fridays WSOF 5 event in Atlantic City, N.J.”

As far as I know, Tyson Nam definitely wants that fight,” Sefo ssaid. “So thats a good fight. We all make mistakes, and Miguel has obviously run into a situation, and well support him. Hes 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. Sheriffs 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.

Torres and Nam were on course to fight earlier this year after both were upset by hot up-and-comer Marlon Moraes. But the arrest shelved the match for WSOF 4, which took place this past month.

Tyson Nam’s trainer expressed frustration at the delay, which mirrored the fighters limbo following a contractual dispute with Bellator that led him to the upstart WSOF.”We just want to fight,” said Phil Claud at Portland, Ore.s Sports Lab. “One of the reasons we went with WSOF over Bellator was they promised to keep us active, and here we are back with long periods of inactivity. Whether its Tyson or any other Sports lab fighter, we just want to stay active.”Nam most recently fought in March at WSOF 2, where he lost a decision to Moraes. The setback snapped a five-fight winning streak that culminated with a knockout of Bellator bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas.
