James Gallagher will be enjoying home cage advantage when headlining Bellator 270 against Patchy Mix in front of a devoted Dublin audience.
Bellator announced its plans for Bellator 270 on Tuesday. In addition to the main event between Gallagher and Mix, the co-main event will feature Peter Queally facing Patricky Freire in a rematch of their bout from earlier this year that came to a premature end due to a doctor’s stoppage win for Queally. The event will take place from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, and tickets will go on sale Friday, August 27.
SBG Ireland’s James Gallagher (11-1) has followed in the footsteps of his Notorious teammate Conor McGregor by being nothing but confident and self-assertive thus far in his MMA career. The 24-year-old has now won four consecutive fights, most recently defeating Cal Ellanor via rear-naked choke last October. His opponent, Patchy Mix (14-1), has a 3-1 Bellator record, only falling to Juan Archuleta last September. Mix most recently defeated Albert Morales in May at Bellator 258.
Bellator 270 will air live at 5 PM ET on Showtime with a replay at 10 PM. In the UK, the event can be viewed on the BBC iPlayer; and in Ireland, it will be available on Virgin Media Two & Virgin Media Sport.
