Bellator London promises to continue the promotion’s strong start to their new plans for the European scene, as a host of talented Irish and UK fighters appear alongside some revered veterans.
After the incredible success of Bellator Dublin in the Irish capital in February, several of those who made appearances on that night are set to return to the Bellator cage for June 22’s trip to London.
There are more than enough reasons for those within the Irish MMA scene to be excited about this one but with a host of incredibly-talented British fighters and some huge names on the international scene bolstering the line-up, it really does appear as though The SSE Arena will be the place to be for European MMA in June.
With the middleweight title up for grabs in the main-event, the return to Tyrone star James Gallagher to be found two fights below, and a number of known-showstoppers littered throughout, expect a memorable night of mixed martial arts action – one that could well see more fights added before the night draws closer.
