Joe Schilling will make the walk to the Bellator cage once again.

On Tuesday morning, sources confirmed Schilling will square off against Tony Johnson in a middleweight bout on the preliminary card of Bellator 229 in October.

Schilling (4-5 MMA, 23-9 kickboxing), a multiple-time kickboxing and Muay Thai champion, is currently riding a two-fight win streak under the Bellator banner, which includes a decision over Keith Berry and a TKO over Will Morris.

Johnson (8-2) was last seen earning a decision over Alton Cunningham during the second week of this year’s Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series. This win extended his win streak to four straight, which includes a second round KO win over Mike Ortega at Bellator 183.
