Bellator returns to Ireland for the first time in over a year and a half today to host Bellator 270 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland. MMASucka will have all of your Bellator 270 results covered right here.
In the main event, a sequel bout between bout between Ireland’s Peter Queally (13-5), and Brazil’s Patricky Pitbull (23-10) will go down with Bellator lightweight gold on the line. In their bout back in May at Bellator 258, Queally landed a slicing elbow opening a vicious cut on the Brazilian head, which forced the ref and the doctor to make the decision call the fight off, declaring the Queally the victor.
This bout has extreme implications for the Irishman; it will be his first Bellator main event, his first time fighting in his home country in over two years, and his first opportunity at Bellator gold. However, this hasn’t seemed to phase the 32-year-old, as he strictly has his sights on taking down Patricky Pitbull once again. Queally, a longtime teammate of Conor McGregor at SBG Ireland, has just three fights since 2019. All three of those bouts have been with Bellator and he’s scored two victories by stoppage. In the biggest opportunity of his career yet, he looks to become Bellator’s lightweight champ in his own backyard.
Patricky Pitbull will stand in his way with hopes of earning the strap his brother, Patricio Pitbull, held for quite some time prior to vacating it a few weeks ago. The Brazilian is nothing short of an experienced veteran who has been in the cage with the likes of Michael Chandler, Josh Thompson, Eddie Alvarez and Marcin Held. Pitbull steps in the Bellator cage for the for 23rd time today and holds a promotional record of 14-8. The 35-year-old will make that walk seeking revenge and a halt to his two-fight skid. He’s only lost three straight once in his career, and that was back in 2012-2013. Overall, this is a highly anticipated title fight that you don’t want to miss.
Co-headlining the card are two of the top bantamweights in all of Bellator. Hometown hero, James Gallagher (11-1), makes his 10th walk to the Bellator cage as he squares off with the crafty submission specialist Patchy Mix (14-1). This one has gotten a bit personal, as the two have exchanged words on social media and Mix missed the mark on the scale.
Gallagher has been one Bellator’s prized possessions for sometime now, as he was somewhat sought to be the next big thing out of Ireland following the surge of Conor McGregor. This is, without a doubt, his toughest test to date and the move to Glory MMA with head coach James Krause seems to only benefit the 25-year-old. Along with Krause, Gallaher’s longtime head coach at SBG Ireland, John Kavanaugh, will still be in his corner. Like Mix, Gallagher has most of his wins by submission so this could be quite the chess match.
Patchy Mix did his training at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas this time around. This will be his fifth walk to the Bellator cage as he holds a 3-1 promotional record with his lone loss coming to former champion, Juan Archuleta, at Bellator 246. Mix has all the skills to become the champ one day, and at 28-year-old he is entering his prime. His resume speaks for itself already as he has wins over Andre Ewell, Tony Gravely, and Ricky Bandejas. In a highly-anticipated scrap between two top bantamweights, do not blink.
Also on the card, a high-level featherweight scarp between former title challengers Daniel Weichel (41-12) and Pedro Carvalho (11-5), a lightweight battle between Daniele Scatizzi (10-5) and Brian Hooi (16-7) and the return of highly touted Irish prospect Ciaran Clarke (3-0) take place.
