Vicious Knockout: Pat Curran KOs Joe Warren at Bellator 60 [Video]
by Shawn M. Smith on December 20, 2012

Welcome back, fight fans. This morning, we’re presenting a top KO for the year, one that DIDN’T fall under the auspices of the ZUFFA banner (as we don’t need to have our page removed from Google again!) but it’s still amazing and well worth the watch.

The featherweight championship was on the line in March 2012 as Pat Curran challenged Joe Warren for the strap. The event: Bellator 60. The “Baddest Man on the Planet”, however, was steamrolled by the challenger in the third round of their title bout with a barrage of strikes that lead to the ref stopping the bout as an unconscious Warren slumped to the canvas.

Pat Curran and Joe Warren promised fireworks in their main event Featherweight Title Fight, but it was Curran who stopped the former Champion Warren in one of the most entertaining Bellator bouts seen in recent memory. The last time the Bellator Featherweight Championship changed hands, it was Joe Warren stopping Joe Soto at Bellator 27. Pat Curran, the Bellator Summer Series Featherweight Tournament Champion, was looking to capitalize on his second tournament championship with a victory in the main event at Bellator 60. The first round opened up at a feverous pace, with both featherweights exchanging blows. After hurting Warren with an onslaught of punches and knees, Curran pursued “The Baddest Man on the Planet” looking for the finish. Warren, however, showed why he is the defending Bellator Featherweight Champion, as he found a way to avoid being finished. In the second round, it was Warren who controlled the fight with his Greco Roman wrestling for a majority of the round and seemed to be building some momentum in his favor. When the third round started, Pat Curran came out energized. After landing a knee to the chin of Warren, Curran followed up with a barrage of strikes that forced the referee to stop the fight.
