Joe Warren Will NOT Be Fighting for Bellator Tomorrow Night

Bellator was really hyping up the return to the ring for former Featherweight Champion Joe Warren this Saturday night in Connecticut, but apparently the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation has reviewed Warren’s medicals and have refused to let him fight this Saturday night, although, there was no explicit reason given for the failed medicals.

“I’ve been fortunate to work with one of the best commissioners in the sport in Mike Mazzulli, and after carefully reviewing Joe’s medical documents, everyone agreed to err on the side of caution with the goal of ensuring our fighters safety,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney in a statement provided to the media.

“It was determined Joe would be unable to compete this Saturday at Mohegan Sun. Joe’s been with us since the beginning and as is the case with every fighter here, it’s incumbent on me to ensure Joe is 100% healthy and medically cleared to fight before he steps into the Bellator cage.”
