This Bellator 139 fight may leave you in "stitches," but it's no laughing matter for either man.

Kickboxing veteran and two-time Bellator MMA Middleweight Joe Schilling (2-4) will put his reputation on the line against 185-pound Japanese standout Hisaki Kato (4-1), who thus far has fought exclusively for the Japanese "Heat" promotion. It will be Kato's debut both in Bellator and in North America.

"Stitch 'Em Up" Schilling will look to rebound from his performance at Bellator 136, where he was favored to beat Rafael Carvalho but wound up with a split decision loss.

The newly announced bout becomes the fourth and final match-up of the main card set to air on Spike TV on Fri., June 26, 2015, from Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas.
