If you have a problem with Joe Warren's controversial victory over Marcos Galvao at this past weekend's Bellator 41 event, take your complaints elsewhere.

Sure, he knows many fans are up in arms over the judges' controversial decision.

But at this point, it's out of his hands, and he'd rather focus on the positives of his performance.

Warren, a season-two tournament winner who defeated then-champ Joe Soto with his guaranteed title shot in September, topped Galvao via 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28 scores.

Probably not though...

my dvr cut off before they showed the decision. I just found out now that Joe won.

Initially I was super surprised but that's because of the first round and the commentary throughout the whole fight.

I thought it was a super close fight that could have went either way but I assumed Joe lost the decision.

I do think a loss would do him some good...hopefully he'll see this as a loss and get humbled a bit and really learn to strike.

I was impressed at how well he avoids subs...not really with technique just heart, scrambling and will power.


I did think it was crazy how he was moving down in weight and seemed much smaller. Galvao is either huge for his weight or Joe is really small...or both.

You have to judge the fight strictly on aggresion cause Warren did push the pace but paid with every shot he took at Galvao....The knees he ate were ridiculous...

30 - 27 that judge must have missed the first round and been in the bathroom...

just watched the fight for the first time. did my own lil judging with sound off etc...
I didnt think warren won round 1 or 2. oh well.
and imo holding someone against a cage, attempting td's unsuccessfully and deliverying minimal strikes isn't being in control, it is being agressive, but not in control.
