Former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Liam McGeary will face off against Brett McDermott tonight at Bellator 173 in Belfast, Ireland in a catchweight bout as he looks to rebound from a rough 2016 in which he lost his belt to former UFC LHW Phil Davis.
Before Bellator: McGeary vs McDermott airs on Spike TV @ 9:00 p.m. ET, Check out Liam McGeary’s official highlight reel, which was just released on the company’s Youtube page:
McGeary boasts an 11-1 record with ten wins coming by way of stoppage, and holds notable victories over Emanuel Newton and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz. Liam will face Brett ‘The Spartan’ McDermott (MMA Record 7-4) after multiple opponents fell through at the eleventh hour. It’s fortunate McGeary could remain on this card after last weekend’s Bellator 172 kidney stone fiasco which forced the company to scrap the originally scheduled main event altogether.
James Gallagher is scheduled to face Kirill Medvedovsk at featherweight in the co-main event.
