Bellator 140 will come from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on July 17 and will be headlined by a title fight as Douglas Lima defends the welterweight title against two-time tournament winner Andrey Koreshkov.

Sterritt (6-1) has won six in a row since losing his pro debut in 2008. His last two wins have come in the Bellator cage and his last win came at Bellator 114 last year as he submitted Mike Estus with a guillotine choke.
