Bellator may be fraught with old timers long past their prime, but there is some top talent lurking within their roster.
Bantamweight stud Darrion Caldwell is some of that talent.
Taking on former champ Joe Warren in the main event of Bellator 151, it was anticipated that this matchup would be pitting the high-level wrestling skills of Caldwell against the high-level wrestling skills of Warren. Well, only one dude seemed to have brought those skills with him into the cage.
From beginning to end, Caldwell had his way with the elder Warren, taking him down whenever he wanted and even scoring with a sweet suplex. Warren had nothing, and when Caldwell took his back and slipped on the choke, the former champ could only go to sleep and hope for sweet dreams.
The official time of the technical submission was 3:23 of the first round.
With the win, Caldwell is now next in line for the belt, and will face the winner of Eduardo Dantas vs. Marcos Galvao.
