USA

Falls to 1-3 in past four bouts
FlyweightUFC
July 15, 2023
Nam lost to Azat Maksum via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN 49 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Nam could have easily earned this decision and nobody would have batted an eye, which is saying something considering he entered as the second-largest underdog on the entire card at +300. A brawler that is always willing to eat a punch in order to land two of his own, Nam was the far more effective striker in this fight, landing 98 total strikes compared to 46 from Maksum. Nam did allow two takedowns, but did a nice job of not allowing his opponent to spend too much time in a dominant position. Nam's brawling style and inability to generate any forms of secondary offense make it difficult to string together victories. He's 1-3 in his past four bouts dating back to January 2021.

Tabbed for July 15 fight
FlyweightUFC
April 25, 2023
Nam will take on Azat Maksum at the UFC event on July 15, Team Iridium Sports Agency reports.
ANALYSIS
Nam was submitted last month against Bruno Silva. That came following a knockout victory over Ode Osbourne in August after taking a year-and-a-half off. Maksum will be making his UFC debut but has yet to lose in MMA competition.
Brutally finished by Bruno Silva
FlyweightUFC
March 11, 2023
Nam lost to Bruno Silva via technical submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:23 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Nam returned from a year-and-a-half layoff to knock out Ode Osbourne last August, but he had a much more difficult time in this one against a considerably better opponent in Silva. Nam never seemed to be able to find his range from a striking perspective before eating a front kick to the face early in Round 2 which essentially ended the fight right then and there. Nam is tough, and his power is legitimate, but he struggles to generate secondary offense. His 3-4 career UFC record is nothing to write home about, and it seems highly unlikely a prolonged winning streak will be forthcoming at age 39.

Nam is set to take on Bruno Silva at a UFC event on Mar. 11, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS

Wins following long layoff
FlyweightUFC
August 13, 2022
Nam defeated Ode Osbourne via KO (punches) at 2:59 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 41 on Saturday in San Diego.
ANALYSIS
Full marks for Nam for coming up with a massive victory in his first fight since January 2021. Nam has always had legitimate power, but his chin has proven questionable in the past, and his offensive game is limited. Fortunately for the soon-to-be 39-year-old, he was able to connect with one huge punch following a foolish flying knee attempt from Osbourne, and that was all it took to secure Nam's win. It also earned him one of the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses awarded Saturday. Nam is highly unlikely to go an a prolonged winning streak given his advanced age and limited arsenal, but he has quietly now won three of four, all via knockout, dating back to June 2020.
