Joe Warren was unable to defeat Eduardo Dantas for a second time last night at Bellator 166, as the latter scored a majority decision win over the decorated wrestler.
Warren took the bantamweight title from Dantas in 2014, by earning a unanimous decision over the Nova Uniao fighter. Last night, however, two judges saw Dantas winning the bout, and one scored it as a draw. Dantas recalimed the 135 belt earlier this year by decisioning Marcos Galvao.
