By Tristen Critchfield Mar 1, 2021

Patrick Mix will square off against James Gallagher in a bantamweight showdown at Bellator 258.

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. PT.

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 Ricky 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 out Callum Ellenor in the opening stanza on Oct. 3.
