Peter Queally vs. Myles Price booked for Bellator 217 in Dublin

Peter Queally will meet former teammate Myles Price in a lightweight co-main event bout in Dublin, Ireland on Feb. 23 at 3 Arena on the recently announced Bellator 217 card.

Bellator confirmed the bout to MMA Fighting on Wednesday.

Queally (11-4-1) was on the verge of fighting for the Fight Nights Global lightweight title following a first-round TKO of Russian fan favorite, David Khachatryan, in May. After parting ways with the Russian promotion, “The Showstopper” was snapped up by Bellator in September.

Price (10-7-0) is a former SBG teammate of Queally’s who signed for Bellator in July. A representative of Team Ryano, Price has recently spent time at AKA during Khabib Nurmagomedov’s UFC 229 camp for his lightweight title fight against Conor McGregor.

The Kilkenny native called for a showdown with Queally on a recent episode of Eurobash.

“I was meant to fight Peter Queally, I think it was twice now, and he pulled out twice. He didn’t give my team any reason as to why he pulled out. I’d like to fight him because of that, to be honest,” said Price.

Update: Bellator 217 was originally titled “Bellator 218”, but Bellator officials later informed MMA Fighting that the event would be titled “Bellator 217”, as the promotion’s Newcastle card on Feb. 9 will mark the official start of the European series, which will start a new numbering sequence.

James Gallagher is set to main event the Bellator 217 card. He joined the latest episode of Eurobash to talk about his first booking since his first professional loss to Ricky Bandejas. The interview begins at 51:50.
