A middleweight showdown pitting Chris Honeycutt against Leo Leite has been added to the Bellator 202 lineup.
MMAFighting.com was first to report the booking. Bellator 202 takes place at Winstar Resort and Casino in Thackerville, Okla., on July 13 and is headlined by a women’s featherweight title bout between Julia Budd and Talita Nogueira. The evening’s main card airs on Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, while prelims stream immediately prior on Bellator.com. Honeycutt vs. Leite is scheduled to air on the preliminary draw.
Honeycutt had a four-fight winning streak snapped in his most recent outing, as he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Rafael Lovato Jr. at Bellator 189 on Dec. 1. The 29-year-old Dethrone Base Camp representative is 6-2 with one no contest under the Bellator banner and 10-2 as a professional overall.
Leite, meanwhile, made his promotional debut at Bellator 186, where he dropped a unanimous verdict to former 205-pound champion Phil Davis. The 40-year-old Brazilian began his professional tenure with 10 consecutive triumphs.
