Henry Corrales will square off with Keith Lee, the younger brother of UFC talent Kevin Lee, on the Bellator 258 undercard.

Promotion officials confirmed the pairing to Sherdog.com on Tuesday, along with two other bouts set for the preliminary draw: Johnny Eblen vs. Daniel Madrid at middleweight and Weber Almeida vs. Johnny Soto at featherweight.

Bellator 258 takes place on May 7 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and is headlined by a bantamweight title tilt between Juan Archuleta and Sergio Pettis. The card will air on Showtime.

Corrales snapped a two-bout skid with a split-decision triumph over Brandon Girtz at Bellator 250 this past October. The former King of the Cage champion is 6-5 during his tenure with the California-based organization.

After besting Shawn Bunch and Vinicius Zani in his first two promotional appearances, Lee dropped a unanimous verdict against Raufeon Stots at Bellator 253 on Nov. 19. The 24-year-old Extreme Couture representative is 7-4 as a professional.

Anchored at American Top Team, the 29-year-old Eblen is unbeaten in his first seven professional outings, including a trio of victories under the Bellator MMA banner. Most recently, Eblen outpointed Taylor Johnson at Bellator 250 on Oct. 29.

The 36-year-old Madrid enters that matchup with Eblen on a five-bout winning streak. He was victorious in his promotional debut, earning a unanimous verdict over Pat Casey at Bellator 246. Madrid has compiled an 18-6 professional mark while competing in organizations such as Legacy Fighting Alliance, M-1 Global and King of the Cage.

A protege of Lyoto Machida, Almeida has finished all five of his professional opponents by knockout or technical knockout. In his last outing, Almeida dispatched Salim Mukhidinov via first-round TKO at Bellator 244.

Soto, meanwhile, has won three consecutive bouts on the California regional scene after losing his pro debut.
