An exciting flyweight matchup is heading to the Golden State.
Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that a bout between Ode Osbourne and Tyson Nam will serve as a late addition to UFC San Diego. The event takes place Aug. 13 at the Pechanga Arena and will be headlined by a pivotal bantamweight fight between Marlon Vera and former champion Dominick Cruz.
After a 1-2 start to his octagon tenure, Osbourne has picked up consecutive victories in his new division of 125-pounds. “The Jamaican Sensation” most recently picked up a vicious knockout victory in just over a minute against Zarrukh Adashev at June’s UFC Vegas 56 event.
Nam will make his first promotional appearance in nearly two years after a pair of bookings with Tagir Ulanbekov in June were scratched. Nam will look to bounce back from a split decision loss to Matt Schnell at UFC Fight Island 8 in January 2021, which snapped a two-fight win streak for the 38-year-old.
