Bellator Fighting Championships continues to add to its roster, signing UFC veteran Alvin Robinson to face Bellator standout HyeFighter Georgi Karakhanyan. The two will meet in a featherweight feature bout at Bellator 28 on Sept. 9 in New Orleans.
Sources close to the bout on Wednesday confirmed the signing to MMAWeekly.com.
Karakhanyan (13-2-1) is one of Bellator’s top featherweights. He was derailed in the Season 2 by eventual featherweight tournament winner Joe Warren. That loss came after winning nine straight fights, capped by a victory over veteran fighter Bao Quach in his Bellator debut.
Robinson (10-5) was a top prospect when he entered the Octagon with a professional record of 8-1. He had a difficult time assimilating, however, garnering a record of 1-3 in the UFC. The Gracie jiu-jitsu black belt has since dropped down to featherweight where he is currently 1-1.
Bellator 28 takes place on Sept. 9 at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts in New Orleans.
