James Gallagher will face Jeremiah ‘The Kid’ Labiano in the main event at Bellator Dublin.

Bellator today confirmed the bout for November 10, 2017 in the 3Arena.

Straight Blast Gym fighter Gallagher remains undefeated after beating Chinzo Machida in Madison Square Garden in June.

'The Strabinamal' was expected to move down to bantamweight but has opted against it and will stay at featherweight.

Gallagher has vowed to choke out American Labiano in the capital.

He said: "Welcome to the real Jimmy show. It will be a first for the fans here to have a Bellator event of this magnitude in Ireland and it's the first time that my opponent will ever be strangled, so I'm glad it's in front of my people.

"It's the first phase of building the Jimmy empire, and I'm still only 20."
