    It’s about time somebody knocked old boy down a few notches! Warren needed a good ass whoopin’ for all the shit talkin’ & self praisin’ he’s been doin’ . . .he’s been proclaiming to be the “Baddest Man on the Planet ” . . . . . .well maybe the 2nd baddest now. Him getting viciously KO’d is almost justice for the gift decision he got in his last fight against Marcos Galvao although it doesn’t help Galvao in any way who was blatantly robbed by all 3 judges in his fight vs.Warren back in April(2011)

    This is why champions should stay in their division. Now he just looks like a clown running around with a belt after being starched like a nice dress shirt.

    Bellator must have the worst judges in MMA, all of Joe Warren’s gift decisions and when Zoila Frausto (now Gurgel) got a decision over Jessica Aguilar, that was some bad judging. I’m glas Warren finally got ktfo.
