James McErlean vs Shay Walsh and Colin Fletcher vs Alex Lohore added to Bellator 173

Promotion officials confirmed to us tonight that Bellator MMA have added two more bouts to the Bellator 173 card in Belfast in February.

Irishman James McErlean (7-3) will face Britain’s Shay Walsh (14-4) in a featherweight clash and Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher (13-7) will take on Alex Lohore (10-1) in a welterweight bout.

McErlean is riding a 4 fight win streak including back to back victories over then undefeated fighters in Daryl Golding and Sam Spencer in his last two outings.

Walsh was also on a four fight run before he ran into hot prospect and recent UFC signing Tom Duquesnoy back in May 2016 at BAMMA 25.

Fletcher has had mixed results since being cut from the UFC but returned to winning ways in his last bout against Aymard Guih at Made 4 The Cage 22 back in November 2016.

Lohore has only been defeated once in his professional MMA career when he lost out to Carl Booth in October 2015, since then he has won six straight including four finishes.

Bellator 173 and BAMMA 28 is set to take place at the SSE Arena in Belfast on 24th February 2017 with the Bellator portion of the card being headlined by Liam McGeary vs Chris Fields and the BAMMA portion headed up by Norman Parke vs Paul Redmond.
