In a battle between two explosive bantamweight striking prospects, something had to give. Unfortunately for Tyson Nam, he found himself on the receiving end of a first round finish in the co-main event of World Series of Fighting II courtesy of Marlon Moraes. Find out how he pulled it off below.

Two highly entertaining bantamweight prospects duked it out tonight (March 23, 2013) as Marlon Moraes battled Tyson Nam in the co-main event of World Series of Fighting II in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Both men were powerful strikers coming off the biggest victories of their respective careers, but it was Moraes who would continue that momentum.

Moraes took control of the cage center in the early portion of the fight, winging some quick strikes but not quite finding a home for them. Nam looked to counter with push kicks and catch him on the way in but Moraes was just a bit too quick early on.

Nam, normally a counter striker, tried to mix things up by going on the offensive and he scored with some jabs and outside leg kicks, but this set up an explosive finish.

After throwing several kicks low and even threatening a couple takedowns, Moraes went over the top with a head kick which grazed the Hawaiian in the temple and had him in dire straits. Nam tried to regain his senses, but Moraes stayed right on him and pounded away until the referee had seen enough.

With the victory, Moraes has now won four straight and his future prospects look very bright. Where do you think he stacks up, Maniacs?
