A number of fights have been added to Bellator’s Dublin event on February 22.
Among the most recent additions to Bellator Dublin, former ‘Geordie Shore’ star Aaron Chalmers (5-1-0) is set to welcome Austin Clem (3-1-0) to Bellator in a welterweight featured fight. Chalmers got back to his winning ways with a submission win over Fred Freeman in his last outing, following his first career defeat to Corey Browning at Bellator Newcastle.
Bellator’s European branch announced the news Monday via press release, with the promotion’s official website updated to reflect the most recent bookings. A host of Irish fighters have been included for the Bellator’s latest ‘European Series’ event.
The card will be topped by James Gallagher (10-1-0), in a do-over of what was supposed to be the main event last September at Bellator 227. Now booked for the second time, Gallagher is expected to face England’s Cal Ellenor (8-2-0). ‘The StrabAnimal’ went on to defeat ex-UFC fighter Roman Salazar by guillotine choke submission 35-seconds into the first round at Bellator 227. That came after Ellenor was forced off the card due to a medical condition.
Also at February’s Bellator Dublin, SBG’s Will Fleury (6-2-0) will go toe to toe with Justin Moore (9-4-0) in a middleweight contest.
Richie Smullen (5-1-1) will look to add to his perfect Bellator record against Ranjeet Baria (3-1-0), while Blaine O’Driscoll (7-3-0) will be looking to get back in the win column when he faces Ezzoubair Bouarsa (7-1-0) and Danni Neilan (1-0-0) is looking for a second career victory when she meets Chiara Penco (4-1-0).
Elsewhere on the card a welterweight fight between Lewis Long (17-5-0) and Oliver Enkamp (8-2-0) promises fireworks. Further announcements are expected to come in the following days and weeks but the card, as it stands so far, is:
