The fight card for Bellator’s return to the Emerald Isle is looking packed with British and Irish talent as the promotion prepares to head back across the pond for a pair of events that will feature a plethora of European fighting talent.
Bellator will return to the SSE Arena, Wembley in London on October 1 for Bellator 268, with former welterweight champion Douglas Lima facing England’s Michael ‘Venom’ Page in a blockbuster rematch.
Then, on November 5, the Bellator cage will head back to the atmospheric 3Arena in Dublin for Bellator 270, with local star James Gallagher set to feature in the main event.
Gallagher will take on former title challenger Patrick Mix in the bantamweight headliner, while lightweight contenders Peter Queally and Patricky Pitbull will face off in a pivotal rematch at 155 pounds in the co-main event.
But the fight card has filled out considerably since the event date was first announced.
Top 10 middleweights will clash on the main card, with Ireland’s Charlie Ward set to face undefeated London-based Hungarian Norbert Novenyi Jr, while fellow former featherweight title challengers Daniel Weichel and Pedro Carvalho will do battle at 145 pounds.
The preliminary card also features a host of European talent, with English light heavyweight Lee Chadwick, Dutch featherweight striker Ilias Bulaid and undefeated Irish featherweight prospect Ciaran Clarke all set for action.
