Georgi Karakhanyan Feeling 100-Percent Healthy Ahead Of Bellator 155


Georgi Karakhanyan had a rough 2015 between a technical submission of Bubba Jenkins and a decision loss to Daniel Weichel.

Karakhanyan (24-5-1) takes on former Bellator champion Pat Curran this Friday night at Bellator 155 in the co-main event on Spike TV.

“I got about five surgeries last year and the last surgery was just a meniscus tear but after that, Bellator took good care of me,” he said, during a recent press conference. “They put me in a very good rehab place and I’ve started my training and feel 100-percent.”

Karakhanyan is in his second stint with Bellator, having gone 2-2 between 2010-11 before heading to a handful of other promotions. That included stops with Tachi Palace Fights, where he won the featherweight title, and the World Series of Fighting, where he also captured the belt.

“i know everybody is talking about the title but to me I don’t think about that, right now I have a good opponent in front of me with Pat Curran, a former champion and I can’t ask for a better opponent than him,” he said. “I am very excited, I cannot wait and I am ready to put on a great show and I’m for sure coming out with my hands right.

“I can’t wait for Friday night. I am going out there with nothing to lose, just going 100-percent and fighting my fight and come out with a victory.”
