McKee (9-0), who will now face Gallagher’s SBG Ireland teammate Brian Moore (10-5) on Nov. 10 at 3Arena in Dublin. Gallagher is expected to be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks.
Absolutely heart broken to have to pull out from my fight Nov 10th due to a knee injury. I’ve tore the LCL and PCL. I’m going to let it heal up and recover 100% and I’ll be back stronger than ever! Hopefully we can get the “jimmy show” back in the new year!
