Joe Warren: ‘The Desire To Win Is Still There’

September 24, 2015 12:20 am by BJPENN.COM News

Former Bellator bantamweight champion Joe Warren lost his title to Marcus Galvao in March, when he verbally tapped to a knee bar in the second round.

Now he’s set to return to action this weekend against L.C. Davis in the main event of Bellator 143. Ahead of that scrap Warren talked to MMAFighting and said that he was obviously upset after the loss to Galvao, but he got over it, got back in the gym and says the desire to reclaim his title is still there.

Here’s what he said:

“It sucked, it sucked to have that taken away. I sulked for a little while, but the desire comes back and then you can’t wait to be back in the gym. If that fire ever goes away, that’s when its time to step away, but it’s still there.”

I didn’t hesitate to take the fight. Of course I want the title shot, but I also want to stay busy, I want to get paid. I’d rather stay active than sit out at this point.”
