NEW YORK (March 22, 2024) – The Professional Fighters League (PFL), the fastest growing and most innovative sports league, today announced that Bellator Champions Series on Saturday, June 22, will emanate from the 3Arena in Dublin, headlined by Welterweight World Champion Jason Jackson (18-4) facing undefeated Ramazan Kuramagomedov (12-0).

Tickets for the event can be purchased beginning March 29 through Ticketmaster.ie. Additional matchups will be announced shortly.

On the heels of his victory against former two-time PFL Welterweight Champion Ray Cooper III at PFL Champions vs Bellator Champions card, Bellator Welterweight World Champion Jason Jackson returns to the Bellator cage to make his first official title defense and attempt to extend his winning streak to nine. At Bellator 301, Jackson squared off against former champion Yaroslav Amosov who at the time boasted the longest active winning streak in MMA. The Jamaican born star dismantled Amosov and ultimately scored a third round TKO, proving to be an undeniable force in the talent-stacked welterweight division. A PFL and Bellator veteran who is flawless in his career thus far, Kuramagomedov has accumulated eight finishes, six coming by way of submission and two knockout victories. In his last outing, Kuramagomedov submitted veteran Randall Wallace in the second round, punching his ticket to his first world title shot on June 22.
