The second event of a weekend double-header for Bellator MMA, Bellator 240/Bellator Dublin (a hybrid card with two main events, one for the west and one to appeal to Irish viewers) went down Saturday at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
While names like Brent Primus and Leah McCourt topped the event, there was far more action early on. Opening up the affair was a preliminary card featuring a handful of familiar names. Among them, kickboxer Richard Kiely returned, after a devastating outing against Michael ‘Venom’ Page last year. Also in action, Paul Redmond was facing featherweight grand prix alum and former WSOF champ Georgi Karakhanyan. And Richie Smullen, known to MMA fans for his stint on The Ultimate Fighter, was also in action.
Check back come fight time (11AM ET) for the Bellator 240 live stream from Dublin. Full results can be found below.
