Bellator’s blockbuster June event now has a complete lineup of 14 action-packed contests with the addition of Spike.com-streamed mathchups of featherweights Justin “The American Kid” Lawrence vs. Sean “P-Town” Wilson, lightweights Eric Irvin vs. Hugh Pulley and bantamweights A.J. “Let’s Go” Siscoe vs. Garrett Mueller, as well as a pair of dark preliminary contests with welterweights Adam “El Natural” Cella vs. Kyle Kurtz and lightweights Garrett Gross vs. Chris “Stump” Heatherly.

Featuring one of the most anticipated fights in the history of the sport with Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock, Bellator 138 takes place Friday, June 19, at St. Louis’ Scottrade Center and airs live on Spike.

The night’s first contest takes place at 6 p.m. CT local time, while the Spike-televised main card starts two hours later.

Lawrence (7-2), of Pacific, Mo., is a former national boxing and kickboxing champion and RFA featherweight champion who now makes his Bellator MMA debut on the strength of a three-fight winning streak. His opponent, Wilson (34-25) has the disticintion of reaching the judge’s scorecard just once in his 59 career bouts.

Irvin (9-3), of Pilot Knob, Mo., boasts a four-fight winning streak and is 6-1 in his past seven appearances. He now fights for Bellator MMA for the first time and meets fellow Missouri native Pulley (4-2), who hopes to snap a two-fight losing streak.

Cella (6-3), a veteran of the 17th season of The Ultimate Figher now faces the undefeated Kurtz (3-0), a Missouri fighter who already boasts three career victories despite just turning pro in January.

In a battle of Illinois-based fighters, Gross (6-3) has won four of his past five outings and has gone to a judges’ decision just once in nine professional appearances. His opponent, Heatherly (8-3), is a big show veteran who hopes to snap a disappointing two-fight losing streak, the first consecutive losses of his career.

Siscoe (0-1) and Mueller (1-0) will both be making their Bellator MMA debuts.
