“It doesn’t look like I’m fighting in Japan. It just didn’t work out very well. We didn’t come to an agreement, and it didn’t look like it was the best opportunity for me at that time.” -- Joe Warren
The Joe Warren vs Michihiro Omigawa fight in DREAM 16 will no longer pursue, as both parties did not come up with an agreement. However, Warren hope to have two more fights before 2010 ends. The newly crowned Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight title holder came into the MMA scene in March 2009, getting a TKO victory over Chase Beebe. After that, he outperformed Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto. He then made four wins in five months heading towards winning the second season of Bellator title. In an attempt to make the 2012 Olympic wrestling team, a drop to 135-pounds is on the horizon.
“I’d be a lot more comfortable at 135, but there’s more money for me at 145,” Warren said. “In four years, I’ll be too old to [try to make an Olympic team], so the time to push is now. I’ve been lucky that I’ve had no injuries to keep me from training or keep me off the mat. We’re confident with what we have going on. I’m still training at the Olympic Training Center, and I’m focused on that. I’m still focused on winning in fighting, as well.”View Article Source »
