Jeremiah Labiano questions legitimacy of Gallagher’s withdrawal from Bellator 187 fight


Fil-Am Jeremiah Labiano isn’t that happy with James Gallagher pulling out of their Bellator 187 encounter with less than a month remaining.

Earlier today, the undeafeated Irish featherweight Gallagher announced that he had suffered multiple injuries, forcing him to withdraw from his November 10 fight versus Labiano in Ireland. That, however, didn’t sit well with his Filipino-American would-be opponent.

“I want your MRI scans so I know it’s real #thejimmynoshow,” replied Labiano on Gallagher’s Instagram.

According to Gallagher (7-0 MMA, 4-0 BMMA), he tore his Lateral Collateral Ligament and Posterior Cruciate Ligament in training leading up to the fight.

With their matchup now scrapped, the 30-year-old Labiano (11-5 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) will instead face former UFC vet Noad Lahat in his home country of Israel at Bellator 188 a week later.
