On Friday, October 10th Bellator hosted Bellator 128: Dantas vs. Warren from the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

In the night’s main event, two champions faced off to determine who the true bantamweight kingpin is. Bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas defends his title against interim champion Joe Warren. This fight was initially supposed to take place in May, but when an injury forced Dantas off the card, Warren and Raphael Silva faced off to crown an interim champion. Warren won that bout by unanimous decision and now he is in search of a Bellator title in a second weight division. Warren was the Bellator featherweight champion but was brutally defeated by Pat Curran to lose that title. After that and another subsequent loss many were calling for Warren’s retirement, but he has since rattled off four straight victories. Dantas will be looking to make the third successful defense of his title. He has consecutively finished Marcos Galvao and Anthony Leone and his only recent loss came outside of Bellator against Tyson Nam.

Also getting a featured spot on the main card was the flashy Michael “Venom” Page. The main card aired on Spike TV Friday night at 9 pm E.T.
