Joe Warren gets back in the cage for the second time this year at Bellator 210, as he is set to face Shawn Bunch at the end of the month.
Former two-division champion Joe Warren will return to action at Bellator 210 at the end of the month. A Bellator official confirmed Warren’s involvement with the card to Cageside Press, after the fighter himself revealed on social media that he’d be fighting at the show in Thackerville, OK. Warren previously held the bantamweight and featherweight titles in Bellator MMA.
Warren will reach the 20-fight milestone with Bellator thanks to the pairing, and has spent nearly his entire professional MMA career with the outfit. Warren (15-7) last fought at Bellator 195 in August. That night, ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ came out on the wrong end of a split decision against Joe Taimanglo. Warren has been trading wins and losses since unifying the interim and undisputed featherweight titles against Eduardo Dantas in 2014. His last win came against Steve Garcia in July 2017 at Bellator 181.
Shawn Bunch (7-3) started his career in Bellator, going 4-2 with the promotion. He has not fought under the Bellator MMA banner since since 2015, but will enter the fight against Warren on a three-fight win streak. Bunch, however, has been out of action over a year.
Bellator 210 takes place November 30 at the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Oklahoma. The main event features Chidi Njokuani taking on John Salter.
