A welterweight bout between Chris Honeycutt and Paul Bradley has been added to the Bellator 140 lineup.
A promotion official confirmed the pairing with Sherdog.com on Wednesday. Bellator 140 takes place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., on July 17 and is headlined by a 170-pound championship clash between Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov.
A two-time NCAA All-American wrestler at Edinboro University, Honeycutt is unbeaten in six professional outings, with five of his triumphs coming inside the distance. He last appeared at Bellator 133, where he scored a third-round technical knockout victory over Clayton MacFarlane.
Bradley, meanwhile, twice earned All-American honors as a wrestler at the University of Iowa. “The Gentleman” is 2-1 in Bellator MMA, with unanimous decision triumphs over Karl Amoussou and Josh Neer during his promotional tenure.
