Bellator will make its second trip to the Irish capital in 2019 when the promotion returns to the 3 Arena on Sept. 27.
Head of Bellator Europe Dave Green announced the event at Thursday’s Bellator London press conference. The event will be the fourth installment of the promotion’s European Series.
The last Dublin show took place on Feb. 23. James Gallagher got back to winning ways in the main event with a first-round submission win over American Steven Graham. The co-main event saw SBG’s Peter Queally take on former SBG fighter Myles Price, who trained at AKA ahead of Conor McGregor’s title bid against Khabib Nurmagomedov, which commanded widespread interest nationally.
The September event will mark the fourth time that Bellator has touched down in Ireland. The first event Bellator hosted in the Irish capital was Bellator 169, a co-promoted event with BAMMA, which saw Muhammed Lawal defeat Satoshi Ishii via unanimous decision in the main event.
