It’s the only MMA any of us will be seeing this week, so if you vehemently hate the sport of mixed martial arts, despise equally matched title fights and refuse to see spectacular finishes, don’t watch Bellator 27 tonight on Fox Sports West. Your friends will make fun of you behind your back, but you can go to bed with the reassurance that you’ve effectively stood behind your belief of hating MMA. For those of you who want to get their fill of Bellator tonight, check out what Joe Soto said about Joe Warren leading up to his featherweight title fight.
“I think I’m a lot better rounded that he is. This isn’t a wrestling, this is MMA. We don’t know whose wrestling is going to be better until we get in there. I’m more well rounded – I’m going to kick his ass. It’s going to take a different opponent for me to lose this belt – not Joe Warren. I’ve grown a lot in this sport, but I feel like I haven’t gotten the opportunity to use all of my tools. Maybe Joe Warren will push me to use all of those tools. It would suck to lose to him; I never want to lose to a dirt bag like that.”
When we interviewed Joe Warren while he was cutting weight for his Bellator tournament bout with Patricio Pitbull (which is the worst time to do any interview), he told us that he’s been legally cleared to possess marijuana in California, Michigan and Colorado. There, now you finally have something in common with Joe Warren. [Source]
