Gallagher (7-1) is one of the most dynamic fighters in the sport with his brash personality and unique fighting skills. But he looks to rebound after suffering the first loss of his career when he got knocked out by Ricky Bandejas at Bellator 204 in August.

Graham (5-3) will be making his Bellator debut coming off the back of a four-fight winning streak, with all of them coming via stoppage. 

The crowd will be rabid in favor of Gallagher. This has all the makings of a setup fight for the Irish mixed martial artist, but that is why they put on the four-ounce gloves and do battle inside the cage.
