Joe Warren brutally KO'd; complete Bellator 51 results


Warren, Bellator’s current featherweight champion, was attempting a run at a second championship belt. However, the promotion did him no favors in the opening round by pairing him up against the 2006 Olympic freestyle-wrestling bronze medalist.

Despite being at a visible size disadvantage, the 40-year-old Vila proved to be the superior striker.

After a big right hand from Vila stunned Warren early, he shot in for a single leg takedown but was unable to secure it.

The final sequence began when the pair separated and reset. Vila immediately landed a left hook to Warren’s chin that had him out cold before he even hit the mat.

I think it's a combination of his arrogance coupled with his gift decision win over Galvao that really makes people hate him with a burning passion.  I like him, but I've met him before so I've seen his personality outside of fight-hyping -- and he's cooler than Mr. Cool Ice.

It just dawned on me who crying Joe Warren looks like in this pic.  He is a dead ringer for Drew Fickett!

I agree. The only thing I hate more than seeing fighters hit an opponent that is absolutely knocked the fuck out is referees so slow to react that they allow multiple hits to occur.

Anyone who goes by the "self described baddest man on the planet" is pretty douchey and fair game. Calling a guy juiced up and mocking his speaking ability is as well. Vila made me a fan though, dude has a tough life story, not seeing his 15 yr old daughter since she was a baby. The next round should be insane, Ed West looks like the weak link though and is in trouble with whomever they match him with.
