Joe Warren can be seen coaching on Fight Master and when the season concludes, the former featherweight champion will be right back inside the Bellator Cage opposite Nick Kirk.
“They’re letting me fight and I’m happy for it,” said Warren to MMA Weekly. “I’m going to make one more push for a belt and leave it in the cage and see what happens.”
It will be the ninth time Warren competes for Bellator. Since dropping the title along with losses to Alexis Vila and Pat Curran, Warren defeated Owen Evinger in November.
Kirk is 10-2 since turning pro in 2010. Both losses have come in his only Bellator appearances.
They are set for Bellator 98, which will kick start Season 9. It’s on Saturday, September 9.
