Georgi KarakhanyanSouthern California | Inland Empire/LA/OC
I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. When I was 12 years old my family and I moved from Russia to the U.S and settled in Riverside, CA. When I was 21, I started experimenting with mixed martial arts and began to find a passion in Jiu-Jitsu. The same year I got involved in Jiu-Jitsu, I got booked for my first professional fight where I won. After fighting for a few different organizations, I ended up securing two championship belts in the featherweight division. In 2014, I got my black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and shortly after I got picked up to fight for Bellator, where I currently fight. I’m coming up on 15 years of fighting professionally and I’m constantly looking for new ways to level up. On season or off season, I train non-stop and always look for ways to strengthen my mind and body to get me ready for the next fight.
