GIF: Joe Warren lands illegal, upside-down head kick against Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 128
Joe Warren unified the bantamweight championship last night (Fri., Oct. 10, 2014) in the Spike TV main event of Bellator 128 and in the process, shinned Eduardo Dantas with a bone to the dome in the waning minutes of their 135-pound affair. "The Baddest Man on the Planet" -- who insists he was simply trying to push off the cage -- received a stern talking-to from veteran referee "Big" John McCarthy, but no point deduction, and managed to leave the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, with the belt around his waist.

Hallmann: 'Brazil drug test procedures crazy; I am innocent'
Piotr Hallmann says he is out to clear his name after post-fight drug tests administered at September's UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Arlovski event came back positive for banned substances. Hallmann's $50,000 ‘Fight of the Night' bonus was rescinded once the result came back but he says he is more concerned about his good name. He says the testing process in Brazil was badly flawed and claims that he is innocent of having taken any banned substance.
