MMA Promotion Bellator Interested In 205 Live Star

MMA Promotion Bellator Interested In 205 Live Star

In a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it seems that MMA promotion Bellator is interested in bringing in 205 Live star Jack Gallagher for a fight.

It wouldn’t be the first time the promotion has used a WWE star, with both Jack Swagger and Bobby Lashley fighting for them. However, both Lashley and Swagger were no longer with WWE when their fights too place, and it isn’t clear whether WWE would allow Gallagher to take a fight while under contract.

Bobby Lashley has indicated that he is keen on a return to the octagon, and may well take some time out this summer to prepare for a fight.

Given that WWE quite clearly doesn’t care about 205 Live, Gallagher may be more likely to be given leave to take a fight with Bellator, but given how clearly threatened WWE are feeling with the rise of AEW, perhaps it isn’t too keen on allowing one of their stars to fight for any kind of rival promotion.

Gallagher has a history in MMA, and given how little he’s doing on 205 Live, you wouldn’t blame him if he wanted a bit of a change on scenery.
