“The Baddest Man On The Planet” is back. Former multi-division Bellator champion Joe Warren will square off with Shawn Bunch at Bellator 210 on Nov. 30.
MMAJunkie was the first to report the fight booking.
Warren (15-7) will look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since Mar. 2012 as he’s coming off a split decision setback to Joe Taimanglo at Bellator 195 in March. The 42-year-old has alternated wins and losses over his past seven fights. Prior to that, the Colorado native had won titles in both the featherweight and bantamweight division. When he steps into the cage on Nov. 30 he’ll also be the third fighter in Bellator history to reach 20-fights with the promotion.
Bunch (7-3) hasn’t competed since a June 2017 unanimous decision win over Rodrigo Lima at Conquer FC 4. The 35-year-old started his career with Bellator in 2012 and amassed a 4-2 record with the promotion before he was released in 2015. The American Kickboxing Academy product heads into this matchup on a three-fight win streak.
