Hey, guess what? There’s a Bellator going on tonight, with Bellator 210 bringing us the likes of Chidi Njokuani, David Rickels, Joe Schilling and Goiti Yamauchi. Essentially, it’s a “whatever” card. But the prelims just went down, and on it, we got to see former featherweight- and bantamweight champ Joe Warren get creamed by Shawn Bunch.
Both men are wrestlers, so of course this one was a face-punching contest. Unfortunately, Warren got hit in what looked like the collarbone, and was semi-defenseless after that, so Bunch just punched the living daylights out of him.
Warren didn’t go down, he just cowered, and eventually the ref mercifully jumped in.

Afterwards, Warren was saying something about not feeling his hands. That’s, uh, pretty scary stuff.
Bellator tells me Joe Warren is being transported to the hospital. No other information about his condition is available at the moment.

Look, we just watched an ancient Chuck Liddell get smoked last weekend. Seeing another aging vet like Warren get demolished… this is getting hard to stomach.
Someone needs to get Warren to retire as soon as possible before he winds up paralyzed.
