Last night, just moments after Kiefer Crosbie accidentally let it slip that Bellator would be returning to Dublin in September, an announcement was made.
Thankfully, BDK didn’t find himself in hot water due to his rather well-timed slip of the tongue.
Bellator announced in the middle of last night’s Bellator 217 event that they are planning to make a return to Dublin’s 3Arena in September – a night that will no doubt be another massive occasion and likely, an even quicker sellout.
We already delved into why last night as a whole was the perfect showcase for the growth of this sport and the culture that surrounds it on Irish shores but upon hearing that we are going to be treated to another night of fighting in the very same venue, it’s hard to imagine anything other than a lineup of this country’s very best on the billing.
Irish MMA is well and truly on the rise folks.
We are still only at the beginning of this journey.
