Undefeated Irish featherweight James Gallagher is aiming to build on a promising start with Bellator as he prepares for his second bout with the promotion.

'The Strabanimal' (4-0 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) will feature on the main card at Bellator 163 against Israel's Kirill Medvedovski (7-2 MMA, 0-0 BMMA).

The card, which takes place on November 10, will see Medvedovski fight on home turf at the Menora Mivtachim Arena in Tel Aviv.

The SBG fighter got his Bellator career off to the perfect start in July as he beat Mike Cutting at Bellator 156 and moved the 19-year-old to four consecutive victories since turning professional just under a year ago. 

Other fights on the card include welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov defending his title against Douglas Lima and Scott Cleve faces Noad Lahat.

Joaquin Buckley also takes on Jackie Gosh in a welterweight bout.
