This morning Bellator MMA announced they had added six bouts to their Bellator Dublin card. Joining the headline act James Gallagher & Cal Ellenor in Dublin will be reality TV star, turned professional fighter Aaron “The Joker” Chalmers (5-1) against Austin Clem (3-1)
Chalmers, who has won five of his six professional bouts will be looking to produce his first back-to-back wins under the promotion. have previously competed on BAMMA, picking up 3 first-round finishes before moving to Bellator. Opposite Aaron will be Austin Clem, who will be making his Bellator debut. Clem has won three of his four professional fights prior to signing for Bellator but also has an impressive amateur career of 6-1. Clem has much more fight experience coming into this fight but can he perform in the big stage? Fighting Aaron brings a lot of attention & media commitments that will no doubt have an effect on Clem.
Also added to the card is SBG Ireland’s Will Fleury (6-2) goes up against Justin Moore (9-4). Fleury is a stallwalt of the Bellator Dublin shows. Fleury will be looking to bounce back after his unanimous decision loss to Norbert Novenyi in September.
This will be the second fight under the Bellator banner for Moore, who made his debut at Bellator London, where he lost Charlie Ward via TKO in the second round. Both these men will come to fight and should stand and bang for all the fans to watch.
Another SBG product, Richie Smullen (5-1-1), fights on his third Bellator Dublin card and is aiming to maintain a perfect record in Dublin. The Irish featherweight recorded back-to-back Dublin wins against Adam Gustab and Sean Tobin in 2019 and faces England’s Ranjeet Baria (3-1), who is searching for his first win under the promotion, having made his Bellator debut in Newcastle earlier this year.
