Bellator MMA Star James Gallagher Aiming for May Return

News broke on the “MMA Hour” Monday that James
Gallagher
was injured and would not be able to fight at

Bellator 196
against Adam
Borics
. Instead, Benson
Henderson
would face Roger
Huerta
as the new main event.

In a social media post Gallagher apologized to fans and let
them know the details of his injury and when he expects to return
to action.

This injury is coming after Gallagher had undergone knee surgery
last October and worked his way back to training for competition.
The 21-year-old featherweight is one of the younger rising stars on
the Bellator
MMA
roster.

His last appearance against Chinzo
Machida
at Bellator 180 in Madison Square Garden this past June
not only elevated the young man as a legit force of his own to be
reckoned with, but put his submission game on full display. Five of
Gallagher’s seven wins come by way of rear-naked choke.
