Gallagher to make Bellator return in May

James Gallagher's journey to an MMA world title shot will continue at the start of May in America.

Gallagher (11-1) will return to the the cage to face American Patchy Mix at the Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, USA at Bellator 258 on the 7th May.

The County Tyrone man, known as the Strabanimal, has lost just one of his professional bouts just like his opponent Mix (13-1).

The 24 year old Bantamweight was last in the ring in October 2020 where he beat Cal Ellenor with a first round stoppage.
