Georgi Karakhanyan Becomes 4th Confirmed Participant for Bellator’s Featherweight Tournament

MMA Junkie Reports:

http://mmajunkie.com/news/22234/georgi-karakhanyan-returns-for-bellators-season-four-featherweight-tourney.mma

Georgi Karakhanyan

14-2-1 MMA/ 2-1 Bellator Record

– Won 10 of last 11 Fights

– Notable Wins:  Albert Rios, James Pettus, Bao Quach

—————————————————————————-

Bellator officials announced today that Georgi Karakhanyan will get a second chance at a tournament championship.

Karakhanyan competed in season two’s tournament, scoring a highlight reel knockout on Bao Quach with a knee-strike in the first round. He then went on to meet eventual tournament winner Joe Warren, in which he lost a unanimous decision. Many believe he should have got the victory, since he was actively looking for submissions while on his back. He then went on to win a non-tournament bout against Anthony Leone in September of last year.

Karakhanyan joins Zac George, Kenny Foster, and Eric Larkin already confirmed to compete in this year’s tournament.
