Kavanagh will look to keep the momentum going after winning a decision over McCourt. | Lucas Noonan, Bellator
A month out from Bellator’s recent show in Dublin, the company has already announced the next trip to Ireland for Sept. 23.
This is the first time since 2019 that Bellator visits Dublin twice in a calendar year, making it up for an eventless year in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The most recent show in Ireland had Kavanagh coming back from a championship defeat to Cris Cyborg with a decision over Leah McCourt. Bellator had mentioned a possible rematch with Cyborg after the victory, but changed plans afterwards.
Queally was also scheduled to fight that night at the 3Arena but was forced out of a co-main event clash with lightweight Kane Mousah due to injury. In his most recent bout, also in Ireland, “The Showstopper” challenged Patricky Freire for the vacant 155-pound belt in front of his countrymen but lost via second-round knockout.
