Warren withdraws from Dream.16

by Joe Meyers | source: sherdog.com
 

One of the top fights slated for Dream 16 on Sept. 25 in Nagoya, Japan, was a featherweight matchup pitting the world-ranked Michihiro Omigawa against newly crowned Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight titleholder Joe Warren.

However, during an appearance on the Sherdog Radio Network’s Savage Dog Show on Friday, Warren said he will not face Omigawa at the event.

“It doesn’t look like I’m fighting in Japan,” said Warren, who knocked out Joe Soto at Bellator 27 in San Antonio to win his title. “It just didn’t work out very well. We didn’t come to an agreement, and it didn’t look like it was the best opportunity for me at that time. I thought it was, but it just isn’t going to go down.”

Even though the fight with Omigawa did not materialize, Warren -- a Greco-Roman wrestler who won gold medals at the 2006 Pan-Am Games, the 2006 FILA Wrestling World Championships and the 2007 Wrestling World Cup -- hopes to have two more fights before the end of the year.

Great to see cole fighting again, he had an awesome KO of meada.I would be curious why warren dropped out.I mean i didnt think he should be fighting 3 weeks after anyway, but even after the fight he was telling reporters im going to fight omigawa at dream. Then he pulls out?Im thinking bellator or someone else stopped this.Good idea, omigawa is better striker, bigger (much bigger then warren) much better submissions. Excellent takedown defense. I think warren would have had some serious trouble.

 Bellator wont let their champs fight for anybody else. Kinda makes you look bad if your World Champion goes and gets beat by someone in another org.

Warren would have swollen Omigawas already gigantic head even bigger.

 Hopefully Bellator will rematch Warren and Freire before year's end, Patricio definitely deserves a rematch considering how many people had him winning the first fight comfortably
