Bellator, the promotion with the enlightened social media strategy has shared the complete 1:17 of Alexis Vila vs. Joe Warren from this Saturday's Bellator 51. Warren, Bellator's featherweight champ and one of the top Greco-Roman wrestlers in the world entered this season's bantamweight tournament hoping to become a two division champ.
Those dreams were dashed by Vila. Here's Jackie Maden's account from Bloody Elbow:
Round one: Vila opens with a head kick that's blocked. Warren is swinging hard but Vila is out of reach. Vila connects and staggers Warren, then lands a beautiful right that knocks Warren out cold!! Holy crap, that was a fantastic punch! Alexis Vila def. Joe Warren via KO, 1:04 of round one
