Watch: James Gallagher Flawless In First-Round Submission Victory

James Gallagher faced very little in the way of trouble as he managed to completely outclass Steven Graham in the Bellator 217 headliner this evening.

A truly fantastic night for the Irish was capped off by a near-flawless first-round submission victory from headliner James Gallagher over his opponent Steven Graham.

It really wasn’t too much hassle for Gallagher to dominate once the fight hit the mat – something that happened within the opening ten seconds.

From there, it was a methodical beatdown by the Strabane man before he was able to sink in the fight-ending rear-naked choke before the first-round was through.

With that, he moves to 8-1 as a professional in a fight on perhaps the biggest stage of his career, all things considered.
