Kiefer Crosbie Becomes Latest Irish Prospect To Sign With Bellator

Irish welterweight Kiefer Crosbie has joined the list of Irish fighters signed to Bellator.

“Big Daddy” becomes the second Irishman to join the promotion in as many days following the news that Richard Kiely had been added to their ever-expanding roster.

Crosbie who has notched up an impressive 4-0 record coming off a win from his brawl with Josh Plant, which acted as the co-main event for BAMMA 35 at Dublin’s 3 Arena.

The Dubliner finished Plant with a series of elbows as he was held against the fence in the first round.

In his first pro bout, Crosbie gained a measure of revenge over Keith McCabe for an amateur defeat the previous year, finishing him in the first round of a clash at Battlezone Fighting Championships 15.

Eight months later, Crosbie made it two for two on an altogether grander stage, when he finished Conor Riordan at BAMMA 27.

Crosbie was one of Pundit Arena’s “Irish Prospects To Watch Out For in 2018″ at the start of the year.
