Joe Warren deemed medically ineligible to compete at Bellator 98 on Sept. 7 at Mohegan Sun
Former Bellator Featherweight Champion Joe Warren has been deemed ineligible to compete by the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation. After reviewing the medical documentation submitted by Warren, the now Bellator Bantamweight Semifinalist will have his fight delayed until further notice. "I've been fortunate to work with one of the best commissioners in the sport in Mike Mazzulli, and after carefully reviewing Joe's medical documents, everyone agreed to err on the side of caution with the goal of ensuring our fighters safety. It was determined Joe would be unable to compete this Saturday at Mohegan Sun. Joe's been with us since the beginning and as is the case with every fighter here, it's incumbent on me to ensure Joe is 100% healthy and medically cleared to fight before he steps into the Bellator cage."

Five observations about TUF 18
Whenever the colors of the "Ultimate Fighter" franchise begin to bleed together a little bit the UFC gets to experimenting. Over the years we’ve seen the shake-ups: There was the live version. There was Kimbo Slice season, which produced the single most comical epiphany of all time ("The enemy is the inner me," realized the back-alley brawler). There was the invisible season (purportedly TUF 16, which nobody can confirm because nobody watched). And there was the "comeback" season, which regurgitated the likes of Shonie Carter and Matt Serra back into existence. This season -- the 18th -- is sort of being rolled out as an evolution. It’s the first time we’ve seen an elixir of women and men in the same house. That the women are part of the enterprise isn’t so much a movement for fistic equality as a long-overdue inevitability. And this was all made possible by current UFC champion Ronda Rousey, who made up for Dana White’s concerns regarding divisional depth by containing multitudes, star appeal and armbars...

Ryan Thomas Poised for Rematch at XFC 25, Wants to Become Two-Promotion Champion
Heading into his scheduled fight against Ian Stephens at XFC 25 on Friday, former UFC and Bellator welterweight Ryan “The Tank Engine” Thomas had experienced opponents dropping out of fights, but hadn’t quite been anticipating what was going to happen the week before this fight. “I was supposed to fight Ian Stephens and from what I heard, he supposedly told the XFC that he signed a UFC contract and wouldn’t be fighting me,” said Thomas. “Then (XFC president John) Prisco told me that he got a hold of the UFC to tell them that Stephens is under contract with them to fight me, and from what I heard, the UFC doesn’t even know who Ian Stephens is...
