A strawweight pairing between undefeated prospect, Danni Neilan and Marseille native, Audrey Kerouche has been added to a Bellator Dublin event on November 5th. from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland in the promotion’s return to the region.
Set for her second professional walk of the year, Roscommon native, Neilan last featured under the National Fighting Championship banner in Germany, where she lodged an impressive unanimous decision triumph against Katharina Dalisda — improving to 4-0 in the process.
For France native, Kerouche, the 33-year-old makes her Bellator MMA debut, off the back of a third round ground strikes loss against Micol di Segni under the scrutiny of the Ansgar Fighting League. Bellator MMA confirmed the pairing of Neiland Kerouche in an official press release this Tuesday afternoon.
Competing three prior times under the Scott Coker-led banner, Neilan, a staple of Straight Blast Gym and Relentless Martial Arts and Fitness, made her professional mixed martial arts debut back in September of 2019 with a home soil unanimous decision victory over Camila Rivarola.
At Bellator 240 in February of last year, Neilan managed another unanimous judging triumph, this time against Chiara Penco. Featuring twice last year as well, the strawweight upstart lodged an impressive rear-naked choke stoppage against Claire Lopez at the Bellator Euro Series 8 in Milan, Italy — scoring her first professional finish.
Headlining in her last bout against di Segni, Kerouche fell to 7-5 as a professional from 12 outings. The Team Sorel trainee has notably taken four separate submission wins across her career — including a trio of armbar stoppages against Mandy Deschamps, Akvile Vitkauskaite, and Morgane Delagnau.
Bellator Dublin takes place on November 5th. from the 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland — with a bantamweight headlining bout between the #6 ranked contender, James Gallagher and one-time title challenger, the #2 ranked, Patchy Mix slated. A co-main event rematch pairing between Neilan’s SBG teammate, Peter Queally and former lightweight title chaser, Patricky Freire has also been booked for the November return.
