One of Bellator's top prospects is back in the cage next month.

Chris Honeycutt will meet Mikkel Parlo at Bellator 156 on June 17 in Fresno, Calif., the promotion announced Thursday. Also added to the card, Ben Reiter will take on A.J. Matthews and Rickey Rainey meets Thiago Jambo.

Honeycutt (7-1, 1 NC) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Bellator 153 in April. Before that, he lost to Paul Bradley -- the first defeat of his career -- in January. Honeycutt and Bradley fought to a no contest due to an accidental headbutt last July. Honeycutt, 27, is a Fresno resident and protégé of MMA veteran Josh Koscheck.

Parlo (13-2) sports a 4-2 record in Bellator. Most recently, he beat Abusuplyan Magomedov by unanimous decision last November in Germany. Parlo, 26, is a native of Denmark.

Bellator 156 is headlined by a bantamweight title fight between champoin Marcos Galvao and challenger Eduardo Dantas. In the co-main event, Douglas Lima takes on Chidi Njokuani.
