James Gallagher is back in the win column. After suffering the first defeat of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career in August, Gallagher defeated Steven Graham in Ireland earlier today (Sat. February 23, 2019). The action took place from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. Just a few minutes into the first round, Gallagher took Graham’s back and sunk in a rear-naked choke.
Graham had no choice but to tap out. Check out the highlight here:

Gallagher was handed his first loss by Ricky Bandejas by way of a first-round knockout. Now, after submitting Graham, he hopes to get back on a win streak, and perhaps be a part of Bellator’s planned featherweight Grand Prix Tournament.
What did you think of Gallagher vs. Graham?
