The Bellator Fighting Championship’s season 4 featherweight tournament continues to round into shape. Bellator announced today that season 2 semi-finalist Georgi “Insane” Karakhanyan will be participate in the upcoming tournament.
Karakhanyan (14-2-1) joins Eric Larkin, Kenny Foster and Zac George as the confirmed participants in the featherweight field. He has won ten of his last eleven bouts, with the lone loss coming to current champion Joe Warren at Bellator 18 in May 2010. The winner of the featherweight tournament will receive a title shot against Warren, however, that fact will not distract Karakhanyan.
I need to take this tournament one fight at a time. I’m trying not to focus on Joe Warren right now. Whoever they put in front of me, that’s who I’m going to focus in on. I never underestimate anyone. There are going to be some really dangerous fighters in this tournament so I’m just going to take things one fight at a time, focus on that person, and then go from there.
