“‘Overtime’ isn’t satisfied,” Anderson said. “We have more work to do. More names to beat.”

With the win, Anderson improved to 18-6, leaving the Irish fans disappointed for Moore, a native, who fell to 12-3.

In the co-main event, Patricio Pitbull retained his featherweight title by finishing Jeremy Kennedy. Following a series of strikes, the referee called a stop to the fight in the third round.

Pitbull, who is now 36-7, called out his next opponent after.

“I’m not done yet,” he said. “Aaron Pico, you’re next.”

Bellator Returning To Ireland In June

Officials confirmed that the promotion will return to Ireland in June. Jason Jackson will defend his welterweight title against unbeaten Ramazan Kuramagomedov from the 3Arena in Dublin.

The next Bellator Champions Series event is set for May 17 from the Accor Arena in Paris, France.
