Here are 4 fights that you need to see on Bellator Dublin and Bellator 227 this weekend.
#4 James Gallagher vs Roman Salazar
Let's talk about the fight that everyone is waiting for first.
Taking place at the contract weight of 140 lbs, James Gallagher will face Roman Salazar.
John Kavanagh, the man who helped corner and coach Conor McGregor on his road to greatness, is the same man who has taken responsibility of coaching the young fighter. At only 22 years of age, Gallagher has already been bookmarked for greatness and with his 9-1 record, it appears that's exactly what he is on his way to do.
With Kavanagh's help, Gallagher has been able to bounce back from his defeat to Ricky Bandejas with two wins to his name. The man he is facing is no pushover, however.
Former UFC fighter, Roman Salazar is making his debut in Bellator at the highest level by facing James Gallagher in the main event of the European series of Bellator Dublin. A win here for Gallagher will see him grab the 10th win in his professional MMA career.
