Bellator Dublin adds Yancy Medeiros vs. Peter Queally matchup


Bellator’s upcoming trip to Ireland is continuing to take shape.

On June 22, Bellator Champions Series: Dublin takes place at 3Arena, an event headlined by a welterweight title fight between champ Jason Jackson and challenger Ramazan Kuramagomedov.

The summer event continues to take shape as the promotion announced the addition of a lightweight bout between Yancy Medeiros and Peter Queally. It’s a unique matchup in that both fighters are coming off no contest results in their previous outings.

Medeiros (12-8 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) would have two consecutive wins on his record, but his Bellator 295 submission win over Charlie Leary was later overturned due to a failed drug test. Before that, the Hawaiian picked up a unanimous decision win in his Bellator debut over Emmanuel Sanchez at Bellator 279.

Queally (13-8-1 MMA, 2-4 BMMA) was kicked illegally just 26 seconds into his Bellator 299 bout against Daniele Miceli, leading to a no contest. In June, he will get the opportunity to return to the win column on home soil, which has not produced favorable outcomes despite having the crowd on his side. Queally’s last four outings, including the no contest against Miceli, were at 3Arena, but he could not record a victory.

With the addition, the current Bellator Champions Series: Dublin lineup includes:

  • Jason Jackson vs. Ramazan Kuramagomedov – for welterweight title
  • Yancy Medeiros vs. Peter Queally
