Undefeated Roscommon native, Danni Neilan is slated for her sixth professional outing on February 25 at Bellator Dublin from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland – drawing French flyweight striker, Stephanie Page.
Neilan, a trainee at Straight Blast Gym Ireland and Relentless Martial Arts in Dublin, featured most recently just last month at Bellator 270 also in the capital – stopping Page’s French counterpart, Audrey Kerouche with a hugely one-sided third round ground strikes knockout.
For Brest native, Page, the 33-year-old is set for her second walk under the Scott Coker-led Bellator banner, and boasts a 5-3 professional record from eight outings. Page’s most recent outing came in October at Bellator 259 – dropping a unanimous decision defeat to Irina Alekseeva in Moscow, Russia. News of the pairing between Neilan and Page was first reported by BoxeMag reporter, Olivier Angelini.
Competing four times for Bellator during her five-fight career, Neilan, an IMMAF alum, debuted back in September 2019 – taking a unanimous judging win over Camila Rivarola.
The following February, the 31-year-old managed another judging win over Chiara Penco, before landing her first finish at Bellator Euro Series 8 in September last year in Milan, Italy.
In between her win over Kerouche, Neilan competed under the National Fighting Championship banner in Germany, scoring another unanimous decision win against Katharina Dalisda.
Page, a stunning 100 fight kickboxing alum, landed a 67-33 record during her tenure in the sport, as well as 8 knockout wins.
Competing in professional mixed martial arts since September 2013, Page has competed majorly in her native France, and holds wins over Clemence Schreiber, Charnia Chabbi, Esther Cardenas, and fellow kickboxer, Amsterdam native, Mellony Geugjes.
Bellator Dublin takes place on February 25 from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland – with an undisputed middleweight title fight between reigning champion, Gegard Mousasi, and the undefeated challenger, Austin Vanderford slated to take main event status.
In the co-headliner, one-time lightweight title challenger, Peter Queally returns against Manchester native, Kane Mousah. An eye-catching top-5 featherweight matchup between the surging, Leah McCourt and recent title chaser, Sinead Kavanagh is also official for the card.
