Georgi Karakhanyan and Bubba Jenkins will square off for a second time at Bellator 160.
The featherweight rematch was announced during the Bellator 159 broadcast on Friday night. Bellator 160 takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Aug. 26 and is headlined by a lightweight No. 1 contender bout between Benson Henderson and Patricio Freire. The evening’s main card airs on Spike TV at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.
Karakhanyan defeated Jenkins via first-round guillotine choke in their initial encounter at Bellator 132. Since then, the Milennia MMA native has suffered back-to-back decision losses to Pat Curran and Daniel Weichel.
Jenkins, meanwhile, has won three straight bouts since that defeat. Most recently, “The Highlight Kid” earned a unanimous verdict over Goiti Yamauchi at Bellator 151. Jenkins is 8-2 under the Bellator banner overall.
