Bellator Europe 9 was held last night from the Allianz Cloud in Milan, Italy. The main event saw James Gallagher earn a first-round submission victory over Cal Ellenor. You can check out the fight-ending sequence below.
With the win, Gallagher moves to 11-1. The co-main event saw another teammate of Conor McGregor, Charlie Ward, get a victory, with Ward earning a unanimous decision win over Andy Manzolo.
One fight that stole the show was a catchweight bout between Charlie Leary and Kiefer Crosbie, which delivered an action-packed first round and ultimately saw Leary pull away and nearly finish the fight. He did enough damage for the doctor to call the fight between rounds, however. Peep the highlights below.
