MMA: Jason Jackson v Ramazan Kuramagomedov headlines Bellator Dublin on 22 June

Bellator welterweight champion Jason Jackson will defend his title against Ramazan Kuramagomedov on 22 June in Dublin.

Jackson, 33, defends his belt for the first time since dethroning long-time champion Yaroslav Amosov last November.

Russia's Kuramagomedov, 27, is undefeated in 12 fights.

Bellator announced the match-up will headline in Dublin and also confirmed there would be an event in London on 14 September.

Jackson has four defeats on his 22-fight record, but pulled off a major upset when he became the first man to beat Amosov, ending the Ukrainian's 27-fight unbeaten streak.

The Jamaican competed in February, beating the two-time Professional Fighters League (PFL) welterweight champion Ray Cooper III in two rounds after the PFL acquired Bellator.
