News Flash: Joe Warren not injured; Still scratched from Vale Tudo Japan 2009

joe_warren

Contrary to our previous report that Joe Warren was forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout at Vale Tudo Japan 2009 on Oct. 30 from the JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan, against Rumina Sato because of injury, a new report has surfaced that Warren is completely fit.

Earlier this week leading Shooto promoter, Sustain, announced that Warren tore a ligament in his left knee during training. However, Warren's Team Quest management contacted Sherdog.com to rectify the Sustain's misleading report, saying Warren simply could not reach terms for the Sato match up.

Therefore, Warren is healthy and will continue to train. He is aiming for a potential return to action on New Year's Eve.

Aside from the confusion regarding Warren's withdrawal, Warren's Team Quest teammate and fellow former University of Michigan wrestler, Cory Grant, will fight Sato as previously reported. The bout will be contested at 138 pounds -- the official weight of the DREAM's "featherweight" division.
