“I’m 40!” Revenge of the Geezers (Alexis Vila Edition)

Alexis Vila headlines Bellator 55 this weekend after an impressive victory over Joe Warren in the semi-final round of the Bellator Bantamweight Tournament…

Let me re-phrase: Alexis Vila knocked out Joe Warren, in devastating fashion. Bellator’s current featherweight champion. Joe Warren, who’s known for his resiliency. Joe Warren, “the baddest man on the planet.” Joe Warren, whose eyes got big when he first got hit with Vila’s power.

Both men cut weight to get to 135. It’s not unusual for a fighter who cuts weight to lose power. Vila says he didn’t lose power and judging from his performance, I believe him.

He’s 10-0 with seven wins coming by KO/TKO, two submissions and one by unanimous decision.

In other words: Alexis Vila is a bad man!

He’s fighting at Bellator 55 Saturday on MTV2/EPIX HD against former WEC fighter Marcos Galveo. The two men are friends. But this is business.

He says he’s just now hitting his prime. It’s hard to argue with that.

And, he’s 40.
