Today, BELLATOR MMA announced it will be returning to the iconic 3Arena in Dublin on Friday, September 23, with an event sure to please one of the greatest sporting fanbases in the world.
After thrilling, sell-out events in Dublin in February and last November, the stage is set for another unmissable night of MMA action at the 3Arena as the Bellator cage lands in the Emerald Isle for the third time in the span of a year.
Irish star and #5-ranked BELLATOR lightweight Peter Queally will make his comeback from injury after his recent withdrawal from BELLATOR 275, as he looks to launch a renewed charge for the world title in front of his home crowd with a commanding victory.
Sinead Kavanagh has also been confirmed to return to the cage in her hometown, following a bruising encounter which saw her overcome a knee injury to beat Leah McCourt in a monumental all-Irish clash in February. Currently ranked fourth in the women’s featherweight division, and with her sights set on the winner of Cris Cyborg vs. Arlene Blencowe at BELLATOR 278, Kavanagh will be aiming for another electrifying performance in front of the Dublin crowd.
Additional fighters and confirmed bouts will be announced in the coming weeks.
