A Meathead is making his way to Missouri.

Matt Mitrione will make his Bellator debut on June 24 at Bellator Dynamite 2, when he meets Carl Seumanutafa in the evening's co-feature MMA bout in St. Louis.

The heavyweight nicknamed "Meathead" recently became the latest former UFC fighter to jump over to the Viacom-backed promotion. Mitrione (9-5) brings a two-fight losing streak into Bellator, but his most recent performance, a controversial loss to Travis Browne in Boston in January, still has a pending commission appeal.

Seumanutafa (10-6) is a veteran heavyweight from San Francisco who has fought in both Elite XC and Strikeforce Challengers. He's won two out of his past three fights and took his Bellator debut by knockout when he finished Javy Ayala at Bellator 148.

Seventeen of Mitrione and Seumanutafa's combined 19 career wins are by knockout or TKO, with eight for Mitrione and nine for his opponent.
