Queally beats Scope in thriller before Gallagher produces lightning-quick finish at Bellator Dublin

Danni Neilan made a successful debut in the pro ranks by finishing strong to beat Camila Rivarola.

JAMES GALLAGHER RECORDED a first-round stoppage in the main event of last night’s Bellator event in Dublin’s 3 Arena.

Gallagher made short work of late replacement opponent Roman Salazar, going for a choke inside 15 seconds and the submission was called with just 35 seconds on the clock.

While the co-main event also brought an early finish, a flying-knee knock-out win by Michael Paige over Richard Kelly, Peter Queally offered the best value at the show as he came out on top of a tough contest with Ryan Scope.

Scope dropped Queally with a head kick early on, but the Waterford man held on to avoid the stoppage and showed greater stamina to finish round two on top and with the stoppage win.
