Tonight marks the return of Bellator to the emerald isle of Ireland. Bellator have brought with them a pretty decent card to the 3Arena, despite a few injury setbacks with Peter Queally & James Gallagher having to withdraw; the card is still relatively decent. It’s not going to be competing with the likes of Wilder VS Fury or UFC Auckland, but if you’re a discernible cage-fighting fanatic, it’s well worth the watch.

In the main event of the evening, Belfast’s Leah McCourt (3-1) will be fighting the rising German contender Judith Ruis in what’s set to be either a one-sided quash match for McCourt, or a massive upset for the German. Also on the card; Geordie Shore super-star, and newly turned and increasingly impressive MMA fighter Aaron Chalmers (5-1) will be taking on American prospect Austin Clem (3-1) in the co-main event.

Further down the card, there’s a phenomenal matchup between the ex-Bellator lightweight champion Brent Primus and Scottish star Chris ‘The Bad Guy’ Bungard (15-5). With a win tonight, Primus will cement himself in the 155lb picture and with a loss Chris Bungard will likely be put on the worldwide MMA radar.

The card also plays host to a bunch of Irish MMA stars like Kiefer ‘Big Daddy’ Krosbie, Frans Mlambo, Richard Kiely, Will Fleury, Paul Redmond and Richie Smullen.
