Waterford native, Peter ‘The Showstopper’ Queally has suffered an undisclosed injury ahead of Friday’s Bellator 275 co-main event bout against Kane Mousah at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
Queally, who headlined the promotion’s most recent visit to the capital, competed for the vacant lightweight championship in a rematch against Patricky Pitbull, suffering a second round knockout loss to the Brazilian.
Per an initial report from Severe MMA, Queally has suffered an injury late into his training camp for his bout against Manchester-based veteran, Mousah, forcing his withdrawal from this weekend’s co-headlining bout at Bellator 275.
As a result, the bout has been shelved entirely, with Mousah also removed from proceedings at the 3Arena. It has also been reported that a preliminary card bout between Ciaran Clarke, and Abou Tounkara will move to the main card as a result.
Prior to his headlining bout against Pitbull back in November, Queally defeated the Niteroi veteran with a second round doctor’s stoppage TKO victory at Bellator 258 in May. The victory came as Queally, a staple of Straight Blast Gym’s second in the promotion since his move from Fight Nights Global – after landing a rallying knockout win over Ryan Scope.
13-4 as a professional, Mousah boasts a 2-2 record under the Scott Coker-led Bellator banner, scoring wins over both Mateusz Piskorz, and Alessandro Botti.
Bellator 275 is slated to take place on February 25. from the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland – with an undisputed middleweight title fight between reigning division champion, Gegard Mousasi, and challenger, Austin Vanderford slated to headline the event.
