Bellator 299 is set to take place in Dublin, Ireland on September 23, and on Monday, promotion officials announced a four-pack of new bookings for the event.

Among the names added are a number of Irish stars, including Peter Queally, Ciaran Clarke, and Charlie Ward.

A former title challenger in the Bellator MMA lightweight division, Queally (13-8-1) will be looking to pull out of a tailspin in his fight. The 34-year old known as “The Showstopper” has not won a bout since his 2021 title fight with Patricky Pitbull, for the belt vacated by Pitbull’s brother Patricio.

After being finish in the second round of that contest (moving Queally’s career series with Patricky Pitbull to 1-1), Queally dropped a decision against Benson Henderson, then was finished by Bryce Logan in his last outing.

Against Queally on September 23 in Dublin will be Daniele Miceli (10-5). The Italian fighter is coming off a submission win that saw him put away Cédric Severac with a Von Flue choke last November. Miceli has competed for Bellator MMA once before, but it’s been a while — he’s returning to the company for the first time since Bellator 152 in 2016.

The bout has been booked in the welterweight division, with Queally returning to 170lbs for the first time since his BAMMA days.

The undefeated Ciaran Clarke (7-0), meanwhile, looks to continue his winning ways against Poland’s Przemysław Górny (5-3), who will be making his promotional debut in the fight. That fight is set for 135lbs. And Charlie Ward (10-6), a teammate of Conor McGregor at SBG Ireland, takes on veteran Gregory Babene (22-11) in middleweight action.

The final fight added to Bellator 299 on Monday sees featherweight Darragh Kelly (4-0) throw down with Jelle Zeegers (2-2).
