Undefeated Bantamweight Darrion Caldwell looks to improve to 9-0 and prove he’s title-worthy, but a “Bad Man” named Joe Warren stands in his way.
Bellator 151: “Warren vs. Caldwell” comes to WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla., this Friday night (March 4, 2016), airing live on Spike TV.
In the main event of the evening, the self-proclaimed “Baddest Man on the Planet,” Joe Warren, collides with undefeated (8-0) prospect, “The Wolf” Darrion Caldwell, in a key Bantamweight battle. Caldwell has been quietly creeping up the ranks since his Bellator debut in 2014. He delivered on his promise to defeat the highly touted Rafael Silva last May, then earned Friday’s fight with a first round submission of Shawn Bunch.
Coincidentally, Warren won the Bellator 143 main event that night. It may not have been obvious that night because Caldwell fought on the “Prelims” undercard, but his record put him on a perfect collision course with Warren.
Caldwell recently spoke with MMAmania.com about the large opportunity looming in front of him this weekend, one that potentially looms larger with “Galvao vs. Dantas 2” scrapped.
Indeed, “The Wolf” was not pleased with that news given he’s potentially next in line for the champion.
“It’s just disrespect. These guys sign on the dotted line and then back out, leaving guys like me who really want this title shot and really know who the real champ is in this division. It’s just bullshit to me. Either way, they’re going to get it. It’s just a matter of time until I get my hands on these guys. If they want to bullshit and battle around each other and tiptoe then do it on someone else’s clock, don’t do it on mine. Right now this window of opportunity is mine and they’re fucking with it.”
His displeasure is understandable ….View full article
