Just a month after visiting Dublin, Bellator has announced it will return to the Irish capital one more time in 2022.
The promotion will head back to the 3Arena on Sept. 23, with tickets expected to go on sale Friday. Two of Ireland’s most popular fighters in Peter Queally and Sinead Kavanagh have been confirmed for the event, but their opponents are yet to be revealed.

Less than a month ago, Bellator 275, headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Gegard Mousasi and formerly unbeaten Austin Vanderford, took place at 3Arena in Dublin. Mousasi needed just more than a minute to retain his title by TKO.
In the co-main event, Kavanagh (8-5 MMA, 5-5 BMMA) battled through a knee injury when she snapped Leah McCourt’s six-fight winning streak. Although the broadcast team announced that Kavanagh was next in line for another shot at featherweight champion Cris Cyborg, the promotion ended up booking Cyborg in a rematch against Arlene Blencowe at Bellator 279.
Meanwhile, Queally (13-6-1 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) will look to rebound from his vacant lightweight title fight loss against Patricky Freire at Bellator 270 this past November. The SBG Ireland fighter was scheduled to face Kane Mousah at Bellator 275 but withdrew due to injury.
