Look out Lone Star state, the “Baddest Man on the Planet” is heading your way.
Combat Press has learned through sources close to the situation that former two-division champion Joe Warren will meet WEC veteran L.C. Davis in the main event of Bellator 143 on Friday, Sept. 25, in Hidalgo, Texas.
The 38-year-old Warren relinquished the Bellator MMA bantamweight belt in March with a second-round submission loss to Marcos Galvao. Prior to that, Warren had reeled off five straight wins, including a hard-fought decision win over Eduardo Dantas last October.
Davis, meanwhile, has yet to taste defeat in the Bellator cage. The 34-year-old has picked up wins in seven of his last eight outings, with the lone loss coming in a tightly contested split decision against UFC veteran Ryan Roberts at VFC 41. Since then, he’s risen through the 135-pound ranks, including a thrilling, fight-of-the-year battle with Hideo Tokoro at Bellator 135 in March.
Bellator 143 will air live on Spike TV with the preliminary card streaming on Spike.com. The event will likely take place from the State Farm Arena. Bellator MMA officials are expected to officially announce the Warren-Davis main event, as well as more bouts for the card, in the coming weeks.
