Georgi Karakhanyan continues to find success at 155 pounds.
Karakhanyan picked up his 31st professional win and the first finish of the night at Bellator 263 on Saturday. “Insane” put away Kiefer Crosbie at the 4:25 mark of the opening round with a nasty arm-triangle submission.
Check out video of the finish below:
Much like his fellow Irishman Brian Moore in the first bout of the night, Crosbie attempted to insert himself in the lightweight contest with hard leg kicks. Crosbie put Karakhanyan against the cage and the clinch battle began. After several reversals, Crosbie took Karakhanyan to the mat and looked to take his back. The 42-fight veteran was able to end up on top before working his way to an advantageous position to lock in the choke.@GeorgiMMA with the ‘Insane’ finish!
That’s submission No.16 for the #Bellator veteran.
