Jack May will step in for Matt Mitrione and face Tyrell Fortune in a heavyweight contest at Bellator 255.

Sherdog.com confirmed the change with a promotion official on Monday following an initial report from MMAjunkie.com. Mitrione withdrew from the bout for undisclosed reasons. Bellator 255 takes place on Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and is headlined by a featherweight grand prix semifinal between reigning champion Patricio Freire and Emmanuel Sanchez. The card will air on Showtime.

Fortune and May initially squared off last September at Bellator 245, but the bout ended 2:42 into Round 1 after Fortune landed an accidental kick to the groin of his opponent. Fortune returned to action at Bellator 251, where he outpointed Said Sowma on Nov. 5. The 30-year-old Arizona Combat Sports representative is 9-1 with on no contest as a professional.

May last appeared at Xtremme MMA “Fick vs. Fialho,” where he suffered a split-decision loss to Kyle Noblitt on Jan. 30. May, who has competed for organizations such as the UFC, Professional Fighters League, Titan FC and Tachi Palace Fights, has won just one of his last six appearances.
