'The Showstopper' Peter Queally will once again be back in action in front of the 3 Arena when he faces Yancy Medeiros at Bellator Champions Series: Dublin.

The Lightweight contest is the second bout announced for the show, set to take place on Saturday June 22nd.

The Irishman has been a regular feature on Bellator Dublin cards in recent years, with Queally's walk to the cage as Zombie by The Cranberries echos around the arena becoming an iconic moment of the Dublin shows. 

However, it has been a difficult time of late for the 39-year-old, having not had his hand raised since his win against Patricky Pitbull at Bellator 258 in May 2021. 

In his rematch with Pitbull 6 months later, Queally was stopped for the first time in his 12 year career, with some heavy strikes in the second round. 

'The Showstopper' then faced Benson Henderson in the Irishman's only bout in 2022. After a 15 minute affair, Queally found himself on the wrong side of a unanimous decision.

He was handed his stoppage loss in three bouts when he squared off against Bryce Logan at Bellator 291 before a no contest ruling against Daniele Miceli in his last outing, at Bellator 299.

Yancy Medeiros will be looking to silence the 3 Arena in his pursuit for his second Bellator victory since parting ways with the UFC.

Medeiros spent 8 years competing in the UFC, facing some big names such as Dustin Poirier and Jim Miller. A three fight skid against Donal Cerrone, Gregor Gillespie and Lando Vannata led to the American parting ways with the promotion and opting to sign with Belaltor.

His promotional debut came at Bellator 279 when he faced Emmanuel Sanchez. The Hawaiian cruised to a unanimous decision victory an instantly made his mark under the Bellator banner.

Like Queally, Medeiros only managed to make the walk once in 2023. In a catchweight contest he faced Brit, Charlie Leary. In what would be widely considered as his best performance for a number of years, Medeiros submitted Leary in the very first round. However, the bout was then ruled a no-contest, due to a positive drug test.

At the top off the Bellator Champions Dublin card, Jason Jackson will look to make the first defence of his title against the undefeated Ramazan Kuramagomedov.
