Chris Honeycutt, two-time NCAA Division I All-American wrestler for Edinboro University, has been named to the fight card for Bellator 210 slated for Friday, Nov. 30 at WinStar Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla.
Honeycutt is expected to face Cosello Van Steenis in a middleweight (185-pound) bout.
While reports from multiple MMA websites such as MMAJunkie.com are saying the deal has yet to be signed, the former Fighting Scot wrestler posted this message on his Facebook page this week: "November 30th is my Next Fight. It is in Thackerville Oklahoma at the Windstar Casino. I am fighting this dude >costello van steenis< It will be broadcast on Paramount."
Honeycutt, 30, is 11-2 in his pro MMA career launched in Jan. 2013. His most recent bout was in July, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over Leo Leite at Bellator 202.
The 26-year-old Van Steenis brings a 10-1 record to his anticipated bout with Honeycutt. "Although nicknamed The Spaniard," Van Steenis is a native of The Netherlands. He has just one loss (a unanimous decision to Jake Bostwick in Dec. 2015) in a pro career started in April 2014.
