Joe Warren will be looking to rebound from losing his Bellator featherweight title this fall when he gets back in the cage to face Owen Evinger, brother of female fighter Tonya Evinger. Although a location hasn’t been named, the bout is set to take place at Bellator 80 on November 9.
Warren (7-3) is currently riding a two-fight losing streak with both involving knockouts. Though he’s known for his toughness, Warren hasn’t competed since his March 9 when he was brutalized by current featherweight champion Pat Curran in what many would call one of the worst stoppages of the year.
Evinger (7-3) has also dropped his last two outings and will be looking to turn things around at the event. Evinger first joined Bellator undefeated, but has been submitted in all three of his performances under the promotion’s banner.
Sherdog was first to report the upcoming bout.
