MMA DNA was first to report the booking. Bellator 258 takes
place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, on May 7 and
is headlined by a 135-pound championship tilt between Juan
Archuleta and Sergio
Pettis. The main card will air on Showtime 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m.
The 27-year-old Mix suffered his first professional defeat 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
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
Ellenor in the opening stanza on Oct. 3.
