Dave Meltzer said on the newest edition of WOR that Warren got knocked out in training and is out of the Kirk fight. Fight Network says that Kirk's team was told that Warren was cleared to fight a week ago and the fight is a go. Bellator hijinks.

That main event was a absolute blast and was a fan-damn-tastic free basic-cable fight. By the end, I was cheering pretty hard for Cooper just because Shlemenko kept going for those spinning back fists (I think he was 1 for 10, maybe) and kept doing that ridiculous taunting after he got rocked. 


There were sections of the Rogers-Parlo fight where they reminded me of Rock Em Sock Em Robots, just standing in one place hitting each other.


As soon as I said to myself "man, that Butcher guy looks awkward in there, like he doesn't really belong," he knocks the old man out. Old man - he's younger than me and is retiring. Even if I wanted to be a cagefighter like my hero Kip Dynamite, I'm too old. :(


I just hate I missed the Torrey-Ward fight, from reading about it.
