Patrick Mix will be fighting James Gallagher in a bantamweight showdown at Bellator 258 this upcoming May.
MMA DNA was the first to report the clash. Bellator 258 will be taking place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, US, on May 7 and is headlined by Juan Archuleta and Sergio Pettis.
The 27-year-old Mix suffered his first pro loss in 14 outings in a championship bout against Archuleta at Bellator 246 last September. The former King of the Cage standout began his tenure with the California-based promotion with victories over Ricky Bandejas and Isaiah Chapman before submitting Yuki Motoya in a crossover bout at Rizin 20.
Gallagher, meanwhile, has won four consecutive bouts since losing to Bandejas at Bellator 204 in August 2018. The 24-year-old SBG Ireland product last appeared at Bellator Milan, where he tapped out Callum Ellenor in the opening stanza on Oct. 3.
