Chris Honeycutt
Honeycutt, a two-time NCAA Division I All-American and runner-up at 197 pounds at the 2012 Nationals, brings an 8-1-0 record to next month's bout. The 28-year-old former Fighting Scot suffered his only pro MMA loss in a first-round TKO at the hands of former University of Iowa wrestler Paul Bradley at Bellator 144 in Jan. 2016.

Reiter, 29, has built a 17-1-0 record in MMA since launching his pro career in June 2011. The former Penn heavyweight's one loss in MMA was to "Kiko" Francisco France at Bellator 146 last November.

The Honeycutt-Reiter middleweight (185-pound) bout featuring the two former collegiate mat stars joins a lineup featuring two top-of-the-card matches: Bellator MMA bantamweight champion Eduardo Dantas who wants to avenge his loss to former Greco-Roman wrestling world champion Joe Warren…while unbeaten prospect A.J. McKee faces Emmanuel Sanchez at 145 pounds.
