GLENDALE — Karen Darabedyan’s recent misfortunes in the cage followed him to Texas on Saturday night.
The Glendale High graduate dropped his third consecutive fight, losing to Daniel Straus at Shark Fights 13 at the Amarillo Civic Center in Amarillo, Texas via unanimous decision. The bout was streamed live on sherdog.com as part of the preliminary portion of the event, which offered its main card on pay-per-view.
After the final bell, Darabedyan raised his hands as a sign that he thought he had won the bout, but after the judges’ scorecards were read — incorrectly as 10-9 on all three — the Glendale resident was clearly surprised and disappointed with the result.
