On Friday May 2nd Bellator invaded the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ for Bellator 118. Headlining the event was a bout for the interim bantamweight title between Combat Corner Professional, Joe Warren “The Baddest Man on the Planet” and Rafael Silva. Warren was originally supposed to square off against the promotions current bantamweight Champion Eduardo Dantas, but a head injury forced Dantas to withdraw from the bout.

The first round saw Silva getting the better of Warren as he wobbled Warren with a big uppercut but Warren’s superb wrestling skills allowed him to get a takedown that would slow the pace and allow him to survive the round. The second was more of the same with Silva landing another big uppercut as Warren looked for a takedown but failed to capitalize, Warren again was able to wrestle the Brazilian to the ground and started wearing Silva down. In the third Warren was able to land a solid right hand of his own but was cut open by a right hand from Silva as well, but scored another takedown to grind out another round. The fourth and fifth round Warren simply imposed his will on Silva getting takedown after takedown and controlling the fight as Silva looked gassed.

When all was said and done it was up to the judges’ scorecards to determine the winner and all three judges scored the bout the same 48-47 declaring Joe Warren the winner by unanimous decision. Winning the bantamweight interim title Joe Warren becomes the first ever fighter in the promotions history to win belts in multiple weight classes as Warren had won the featherweight title back in 2010.
