MMA fighter Leah McCourt while laying down her predictions for Dublin Bellator 270 called the main event between Peter Queally and Patricky "Pitbull" Friere a "war". She said that Irish MMA player Peter will have the crowd behind him and that can overwhelm "Pitbull" so she picked Peter to win the fight while acknowledging Patricky's all-around game. Meanwhile, she picked James Gallagher versus Patchy Mix in the bantamweight while also favoring Pedro Carvalho over veteran Daniel Weichel in the featherweight battle.
I think it is going to be a war. It will be another tough fight, back and forth. Peter has come back from some bad losses and bad positions in fights and he always comes back stronger. I can see him just feeding off the energy in the crowd in Dublin. This is a pivotal moment in his career, I can't see anyone but Peter winning the belt. This will come down to who can implement their game plan first. Patricky is so well rounded in every area: striking and grappling, but when he walks out to the Dublin crowd that is going to make a big difference, especially on such a big occasion. It will be in Peter's favour, he always talks about how he feeds off the crowd. His walk-out song is so iconic and it is such a special night for Irish MMA. Peter will come away with the belt.
