Bellator MMA comes to WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla., tomorrow night (Fri., March 4, 2016) with Bellator 151: “Warren vs. Caldwell,” which will air live on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET.
Following last week’s “Galvao vs. Dantas 2” card in Kansas, Bellator MMA is in need of more contenders to the Bantamweight title. The main event between former champion Joe Warren and the undefeated Darrion Caldwell could be just such a fight.
Before the breakdown of the main card begins, I’d like to remind the MMA Mania readers to participate with their own predictions in the comments section below. See if you can best me in determining the outcome of these bouts!
Here we go:
135 lbs.: Joe Warren (13-4) vs. Darrion Caldwell (8-0)
Warren, the self-proclaimed “Baddest Man on the Planet,” meets the undefeated “Wolf” in the main event of the evening, but there’s more at stake than who gets bragging rights to the better nickname. Following his win over L.C. Davis at Bellator 143, Warren is inching ever closer to redemption and getting the Bantamweight title back. With less fanfare, but equal resolve and wrestling ability, Caldwell has strung together five wins in Bellator, with perhaps the biggest surprise being his domination of Rafael Silva at Bellator 137.
Up to that point Silva had only lost one fight in four years. And it’s no coincidence Warren was that one man. Indeed, a pretty clear pecking order has been established here, and if the winner isn’t the next challenger for the title, he should probably be fighting whoever else is in consideration in an eliminator match. Warren has a trophy case full of gold medals for Greco-Roman wrestling around the world along with Bellator titles in two weight classes. ….View full article
