James Gallagher will return to the Bellator cage in June where he will take on Jeremiah Labiano as part of the organisation’s June 22 fight card in London, England, it was announced today.
Gallagher and Labiano was slated to meet in the main event of a Bellator event in Dublin more than a year ago but an injury suffered by the Irishman in training necessitated him being removed from the card but now fully fit and fresh off a first round submission victory against Steven Graham in Bellator’s most recent Dublin event a little over a month ago, it seems that it is time to renew hostilities.

Gallagher is 6-1 under the Bellator banner, while Labiano is 2-3. It was recently announced that Gallagher has signed a new six-fight deal with the organisation, with his next fight after London likely to be in a headlining capacity in Dublin next September.
Also announced for the event is a main event between Rafael Lovato Jr. and middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi, while Paul Daley and Erick Silva will battle in the co-main event. Reality TV star turned fighter Aaron Chalmers is also slated to compete.
