Bungard In, Queally Out Of Bellator Bout Against Primus

Another fight has been altered prior to Bellator MMA’s return to Dublin on February 22. Peter Queally is out of his Bellator 240 matchup against Brent Primus. According to the promotion, Chris Bungard will now face Primus in the headliner bout.

Queally ended up releasing the following statement on social media, citing a tear in his LCL as the reason for him missing the fight:

Bungard (15-5) last fought in November at Bellator London, beating Benjamin Brander via submission. Prior to that bout, he lost to Charlie Leary at Bellator 223 in June via unanimous decision, snapping a four-fight win streak. Queally initially requested to face Bungard on the Bellaor 240 card, as they are both former training partners-turned rivals.

Primus (9-1) is coming off of a submission victory over Tim Wilde at Bellator Birmingham back in May. It was his first fight back following his unanimous decision loss against Michael Chandler at Bellator 212, losing the Bellator Lightweight Championship. That was a rematch from their Bellator NYC bout in 2017, where Primus beat Chandler for the belt.

Bellator 240 will be taking place at the 3Arena and will be shown on Paramount Network and DAZN via tape-delay. The main event of the Bellator Dublin card is James Gallagher v. Cal Ellenor.
