Review: 2014-10-10, some good exchanges between Eduardo Dantas and Joe Warren but it is not enough to get three stars. Eduardo Dantas entered this fight with a mma record of 16-3-0 (62% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.7 bantamweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is TJ Dillashaw), he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Tyson Nam at Shooto Brazil 33; after this bout he went back to the Bellator promotion and he successfully defended his Bw belt against Marcos Galvao (=Dantas vs Galvao) and Anthony Leone (=Dantas vs Leone).
His opponent, the 2006 Greco-Roman world champion Joe Warren, has an official record of 11-3-0 (36% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.11 in the same weight class, he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Pat Curran losing his Bellator Fw title (=Curran vs Warren), after this bout he went back to the bantamweight division winning four consecutive fights; in his last bout he defeated Rafael Silva (=Warren vs Silva). Dantas vs Warren, main event of Bellator 128, is valid for the Bellator bantamweight title (Dantas’ third defense); they also faced each other a second time on December 2, 2016 (=Eduardo Dantas vs Joe Warren 2).
