A former two-division champion, Warren has won six of his last seven fights in Bellator MMA. The 39-year-old last appeared at Bellator 143 on Sept. 25, when he captured a unanimous verdict against L.C. Davis. Warren owns notable triumphs over the likes of Eduardo Dantas, Marcos Galvao, Patricio Freire, Georgi Karakhanyan and Norifumi Yamamoto during his professional tenure.
The 27-year-old Caldwell is 8-0 in his burgeoning career, including five triumphs under the Bellator banner. In his last outing, the former NCAA national champion wrestler choked out Shawn Bunch inside of a round at Bellator 143.
