A pair of bouts have been added to Bellator 243, as Myles Jury will face Georgi Karakhanyan at lightweight, while Adam Borics will face Derek Campos in a 150-pound catchweight clash.
Sherdog.com confirmed the bookings with a promotion official following reports from MMAjunkie.com and Combate. Bellator 243 takes place on Aug. 7 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut and is headlined by a rematch between Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson. Jury vs. Karakhanyan is slated for the main card, while Borics vs. Campos is set for the preliminary draw.
After falling to Benson Henderson in his promotional debut, Jury outpointed Brandon Girtz in his second outing at Bellator 239 on Feb. 21 to halt a three-fight skid. Karakhanyan, meanwhile, returned to the win column following a three-fight winless stretch with a second-round submission of Paul Redmond at Bellator 240.
Borics suffered defeat for the first time in 15 professional appearances at Bellator 238, where he was submitted in the opening round of a featherweight grand prix bout by Darrion Caldwell. After besting Daniel Straus in the opening round of the 145-pound bracket, Campos tapped to an A.J. McKee armbar in the quarterfinals at Bellator 236.
