Combat Corner Professional Joe Warren Grinds Out a Win at Bellator 80
At Bellator 80, Joe Warren showed not only why he is “The Baddest Man on the Planet” but also one of the best wrestler in MMA. In his bantamweight debut Warren was relentless against Owen Evinger, despite Evinger’s best efforts to keep the fight standing, Warren continued to close the distance and get takedown after takedown. In what Bellator commentators called a “must win” fight for Warren, he did what he had to do to get that win. Warren simply controlled the fight and continued to work while on the ground, whether in mount, side control, or half guard, Warren attempted submissions and worked knees, elbows, and punches throughout all three rounds and maintained top position for nearly the entire fight. Warren manhandled his opponent the entire fight and the judges saw it scoring the fight 30-27 and giving Warren the unanimous decision victory.
