‘The Strabanimal’ James Gallagher’s bantamweight debut is official.

The SBG Ireland product, who has registered 4 wins from 4 at featherweight (7-0 overall) in his Bellator tenure thus far, drops to 135-pounds to face Ricky Bandejas in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on Friday.

A win, he says, will guarantee a title shot at 135-pound in Dublin before the end of the year.

Gallagher registered an official weight of 135.4-pounds, while Bandejas came in at the exact same weight.

Darrion Caldwell, the Bellator bantamweight champion, faces Noad Lahat in the main event — oddly enough, at featherweight.
