    "The baddest man on the planet" Joe Warren indicated on social media yesterday that he would be making his return to the Bellator Cage at Bellator 161 and earlier today Flo Combat learned he will face Sweden's own Sirwan Kakai at bantamweight in the co-main event.

    Warren is coming off a submission loss to Darrion Caldwell via rear naked choke at Bellator 151 which was billed as a No.1 contender's match and will no doubt be looking to get back to in the win column. Sirwan Kakai meanwhile is coming off back to back losses with his last out also at Bellator 151 where fell to a unanimous decision to Joe Taimanglo.

    They should stop calling an old 13-5 MMA 135lbs fighter "the baddest man in the planet".

    I know man, its fucking weird isn't it.

    This card looks dog-rough so far. Kongo/Johnson is gonna be a massive snooze-fest, Warren/Kakai probably will be too.

    Weird fight, especially considering that Kakai is 0-1 in bellator. Then again, they have like 5 guys at BW, so not that surprising. I think Warren will get it done, but I hope Kakai wins, just for the sake of the division. In the state it is, it needs new contenders badly.

    Kakai got outgrappled by Taichi Nakajima. His anti-wrestling has improved since then, but Warren will still most likely murder him. His best chance is to outpoint Warren, but even in the stand-up I can see Warren hurting him.

    This card needs something to Motivate it into becoming better, something to Validate it. Because on paper it looks kinda boring and I was hoping Bellator would stop letting Kongo Participate in Main Events.

    Not a bad fight, decent booking with the options they have in the div but yeah this card is meh.

    This is the problem with Bellator, they arent doing anything to make these cards bigger.

    STill no HW title fight? Where is Lashley?
