Joe Warren (Pictured) claims he’s the “Baddest Man on the Planet.” If that is indeed the case, then Alexis Vila should be considered “The Baddest Man in the Universe” for his thrilling knockout of Bellator’s featherweight champion.
Although Warren owns Bellator’s 145-pound title, the veteran decided to drop a weight class for an opportunity to don two belts. Unfortunately for Warren, he found himself on the wrong end of a highlight-reel knockout just 64 seconds into his bantamweight debut.
The 40-year-old Vila not only made quick work of Warren, but he did so in dramatic fashion by unleashing one of the most vicious knockouts in company history.
Vila now advances to the semifinals of Bellators 135-pound tournament.
