The latest addition is Season 2 featherweight tournament semifinalist Georgi Karakhanyan, a former professional soccer player. He will be looking to fight his way through the Season 4 tournament for a shot at Bellator featherweight champion Joe Warren, the man that defeated him in Season 2.
“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,” said Karakhanyan. “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.”
Karakhanyan joins Eric Larkin, Kenny Foster, and Zac George as confirmed participants in the Season 4 featherweight tournament, which will air live on MTV2 beginning sometime in March.
