In your day to day life the word ‘upset’ is usually used to describe your girlfriend. You can’t figure out why though. Before you moved in with her and started spending your days sitting on her couch playing video games all day, dropping cheetos crumbs on the floor and leaving your sweaty gym socks on the bathroom floor she seemed to be the exact opposite of upset. It must be all of your irresistible manliness making her having a hormonal imbalance. You are such a stud-driving the girl crazy, you are. Mmm hmm.
When talking about the fight game though, ‘upset’ is used in a completely different conjecture. An upset in the fight game happens when the fighter everyone expects to destroy his/her opponent actually becomes the destructor. An upset is what went down in both Tyson Nam and Marlon Moraes’ prior fights. Tyson Nam blew a whole bunch of MMA heads’ minds when he KO’d the highly favored Bellator champ Eduardo Dantas at Shooto Brazil 33 in just 1:40 in August of 2012. Then just a couple of months later-at the debut event for the World Series of Fighting, Marlon Moraes stepped in the cage to fight the favorite-former WEC and UFC fighter Miguel Torres and won via decision.
Now the two will face each other in what is being deemed by many as ‘striking lover’s dream fight’ this Saturday March 23rd at the second WSOF event. Today, WSOF released this slick promo for the fight and giving a little inside look at the mental state and physical training they’ve both been enduring leading up to their fight.
