Rich Chou doing a great job! Love these squahmatches (?)
These fight as Main Event probably will have full attendance.....
I guess this is another BAMMA/Bellator co-promotion as I see BAMMA 28 is also taking place in Belfast on that same day with the BAMMA card headlined by a fight between UFC veteran Norman Parke vs Paul Redmond.
I guess they could have put Karl Moore in there because he is Irish. Fields is the 32nd best LHW in Western Europe according to Fight Matrix.
Well this is one way to get Liam a bounce back win. GO from fighting Davis to Chris Fields.
They aint even trying with this shit.
Bellator has become a joke under Coker and Rich
Shitty ass matchmaking with the mcgeary fight, but Bellator needs all the contenders they can get. Mcgeary is also one of their biggest European stars. They need to showcase him for those two reasons. Gallagher drew well for Bellator last time around. I'm sure he will draw even better this time.
Ireland show must have been a huge success for them to turn around this quickly.
Should have picked someone a bit more well known than this fields fellow
I like Bellator in general but being in Belfast again probably means another tape delayed card unfortunately.
Well this is unexpected! Kind of makes sense with the co-promotion I guess. I'm a little bummed they didn't rebook Fields vs Clamp though. I hope we see Clamp or Karl Moore on either this card, or the BAMMA card.
Man—Bellator needed McGeary to beat Davis pretty bad. Not just because McGeary's a homegrown "Bellator" talent, but Davis is bound back for the UFC, IMO—especially given the shitty state of their light heavyweight division.
This is an awful fight - Fields doesn't belong anywhere near a Bellator cage.
Dont think so and now as champ I'm sure Phil's deal will extend. He's not going back to UFC anytime soon.
Bellator would have been good with Liam winning because with their international expansion into Europe having an unbeaten UK champ would def helped them.
Yep. Speaking of BAMMA looks like UFC signed Fire Kid, will debut on April 15th.

Liam is in a weird spot. His wrestling defense is bad enough that I do not think he ever puts up a fight against Davis. However every Bellator division is so thin that a win over anyone will put him back up there.
Vassell can probably get a shot. After that it is slim pickings. Davis was so far superior in that fight though that it killed all the buzz I had for Liam.
God, I can't wait to see how Jimmy Smith tries to hype up Chris Fields as some type of threat. And its not Chou's fault considering how people still buy into this crap.
What are you talking about? Chris Fields is a superstar. He was on TUF!
I thought Fields was a MW?! This match is relevant and exciting and is in no way just set up for Liam to get easy W.
This is absolutely amazing. McGeary headlining against a guy with a drab record, no big wins and who looked like turd on TUF.
It's like giving Alexander Gustafsson or Rumble, someone like Matt Van Buren but about 5 x worse.
What is the point of that fight? And to top it off it's the headliner. At this point I just wish Bellator would go under so someone else can make better use of their assets. They used to hold an event every week and the cards and headliners managed to somehow be better than what they're putting out now.
