Lewis Monarch vs Jeremy Petley set for Bellator 191 in Newcastle

Englishman Lewis Monarch (8-2) will take on U.K. based Canadian Jeremy Petley (11-8-1) in a featherweight bout at Bellator 191.

Petley was originally scheduled to face AJ McKee at Bellator 187 in Dublin, Ireland next month but Bellator shuffled things around after a knee injury forced James Gallagher out of the main event and McKee was rebooked as the Dublin main event against Gallagher’s team mate Brian Moore.

Monarch won his last outing against Nathan Thompson to stop a two fight skid after having started his career with seven straight victories.

Petley is also coming off a win in the form of an unanimous decision over Chase Morton on the prelims of Bellator 179: Daley vs. MacDonald back in May 2017.

Bellator MMA 191 takes place on Friday 15th December 2017 at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England, United Kingdom and will be another co-promotion with BAMMA.
