Joe Warren will have to turn away one of Bellator MMA’s brightest young stars if he wants to keep his place in line in the bantamweight division.
Warren hit the scales at 135.2 pounds ahead of his battle with the unbeaten Darrion Caldwell (135.6) in the Bellator 151 main event on Friday at the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Welterweight co-headliners Fernando Gonzalez (171) and Gilbert Smith (170.4) also met their mandated thresholds at Thursday’s official weigh-in.
Bellator 151 -- which airs on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT -- will also feature a featherweight clash pairing Goiti Yamauchi (146) with Bubba Jenkins (146) and a bantamweight tilt pitting Sirwan Kakai (135.6) against Joe Taimanglo (135.4).
Sherdog.com will stream the prelims live at 6:45 p.m. ET/3:45 p.m. PT.
