Ex-Bellator champ and Fight Master reality show star Joe Warren was reportedly KO'd during training which forced the cancellation of his Bantamweight semi-final tournament bout with Nick Kirk at Bellator 98.

I don't know if I would train full contact fighting with a fight just around the corner

that dude needs to be careful. we've seen him KO'd a few times now and they were pretty brutal. after the loss to Curran i thought "damn, that KO probably just shortened his career like 5 years". i just dont want to see the guy continue to fight and get KO'd a bunch of times and end up like big daddy with dementia.

Agreed, sometimes there are knockouts you don't come back from like Chuck's knockout to Rashad and Gonzaga's over Cro Cop and Curran did the same to Warren. Warren can't take a punch anymore and I have no interest in seeing him unconscious again.

Warren is 36, I wouldn't be surprised if he retired in the near future.
