By Brian Knapp Mar 8, 2012

Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight titleholder Joe Warren will defend his crown against Pat Curran in the Bellator 60 main event on Friday in Hammond, Ind., six months after he was on the receiving end of a violent knockout from 1996 Olympic bronze medalist Alexis Vila. The 35-year-old Warren, in an exclusive interview with, said he expected the critics to come out of the woodwork following his Sept. 24 defeat and claimed to be unfazed by those who doubt him:

“I don’t really pay much attention when I hear people saying things like, ‘He’s done’ after my last fight. I’m used to winning, so I’m used to people talking about me. Plus, I do a lot of talking, so there has to be a lot of people talking about me (laughs). The thing is I’m so young in this sport that I’ve actually been doing most of my learning inside the cage instead of in practice. The people that are out there talking bad about me, I don’t give two s---s about what they have to say. I’m only worried about pushing myself to the limit inside the gym so nobody can hang with me in that cage in the future.”
