James Gallagher and Michael Page score quick wins at Bellator Dublin

September 27, 2019

James Gallagher put on a spectacular, if brief, performance at Bellator Dublin on Friday in Dublin, Ireland. 

Gallagher submitted late replacement Roman Salazar in the main event with guillotine choke just 35 seconds into the fight, never giving his opponent much of a chance to even get started. 

Michael “Venom” Page rebounded from the lone loss of his career in a fashion that was just as impressive. Known for his knockout power from all angles, Page used a flying knee to lay out Richard Kiely 2:47 into the first frame of their fight in Dublin.

In the main event of Bellator 227 earlier in the night, former WEC and UFC champion Benson Henderson earned a unanimous nod over fellow UFC veteran Myles Jury.
