Ireland’s top prospect is heading to Bellator as James Gallagher has signed a contract with the Viacom owned promotion per MMA Fighting.
James Gallagher (3-0 MMA) is coming off an impressive win at BAMMA 24 over Gerard Gilmore, a bout which the SBG fighter dominated on the ground before finishing Gilmore with a rear-naked choke in the first round.
“[I’m] very proud to have another fighter on another big show,” Kavanagh said via MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. “Today is a good day for SBG and Irish MMA.”
Helwani also noted that before he makes his Bellator debut, Gallagher will fight Sean Tobin (4-2) June 4 at BAMMA.
