This Friday, Bellator MMA is scheduled to put on yet another great fight card. The headline bout is a title unification match between current bantamweight Champion Eduardo Dantas and current Interim Bantamweight Champion Joe Warren. The two have had no loss of words for each other leading up to this fight and The MMA Corner spoke with Eduardo Dantas to see how he sees things going this Friday night.

The defending champion, Eduardo Dantas has faced many foes and dispatched almost all of them in the time that he has been at Bellator MMA. With a record of 16-3, Dantas has defeated the likes of Zach Makovski, Alexis Villa, and Wilson Reis to name just a few of the top fighters he has gone through to get to where he is today. At only 25 years old, he will be stepping into the cage for his 20th professional fight when he faces his opponent, Joe Warren.

Joe Warren, a decorated wrestler with a total professional MMA record of 11-3, has found a great deal of success during his Bellator tenure. He is the former Bellator Feather Weight Champion and current Interim Bantamweight Champion and he fully intends on capturing the legitimate strap come Friday night. Dantas has other plans for the fight.

Dantas is not concerned with the trash talk that has been displayed and he even shared that he doesn’t believe that Warren is his most difficult challenger yet. Dantas specifically pointed out that he had defeated opponents that had toppled Joe Warren. Eduardo Dantas hasn’t been beyond the 2nd round of a fight in almost 3 years and has never gone the distance in a five round fight. He expressed confidence in his stamina and conditioning, but expects this fight, like his others to end before the final bell.

Be sure to tune into Spike TV for Bellator 128, this Friday night as these two men go head to head to determine who the best bantamweight in Bellator’s ranks is.
