Irish prospect Paul Hughes is ready to make a splash in the co-main event of Bellator Dublin on June 22 at the 3Arena. Hughes will face off against Bobby King in what promises to be an electrifying lightweight showdown.


Bellator Dublin will be headlined by the welterweight championship bout between Jason Jackson and Ramazan Kuramagomedov, adding to the excitement of this stacked event.


Hughes, with an impressive record of 11-1, has been making waves in the European MMA scene. He previously held the Cage Warriors belt and avenged his only career defeat before entering free agency on a five-fight winning streak. His signing with PFL after a dominant victory over Fabiano Silva further solidified his status as a rising star in the lightweight division.


On the other side of the cage, Bobby King (12-6) brings his own set of skills and experiences to the co-main event. Having gone 3-3 under the Bellator banner, King holds notable wins over fighters like Nick Newell and Aviv Gozali. Despite recent decision losses, King remains a formidable opponent known for his resilience and striking prowess.
