Undefeated bantamweight Darrion Caldwell is getting a major step up in competition for his next fight, as Bellator announced on Friday that he’ll take on Joe Warren in the main event of Bellator 151 on March 4.
The event hits the WinStar World Casino & Resort in Thackerville, Okla., and will air live on Spike.
The 8-0 Caldwell has picked up five of those wins under the Bellator banner. A former NCAA D-1 wrestling champion, the 27-year-old has had nothing but success in his MMA career, and got this booking after a first round submission win over another wrestling standout in Shawn Bunch.
Warren, the former Bellator Featherweight and Bantamweight Champion, is 11-3 in the organization, and is 6-1 in his last seven fights. He lost the Bellator Bantamweight Championship to Marcos Galvao earlier this year, but bounced back with a win over LC Davis in his most recent fight in September.
