Corrales Continues “Life Saving Journey” At Bellator 192
A self-described troublemaker, who grew up just minutes down the road from the Forum, Henry Corrales hopes that for the second time in two years he can pick up a victory in his hometown building.
Looking back almost a year to the date prior to his upcoming fight against Georgi Karakhanyan at Bellator 192, Corrales snagged his first victory in four fights when he defeated Cody Bollinger at Bellator 170. Following his third round knockout of Bollinger, Corrales was able to keep the momentum rolling with a unanimous decision victory over Noad Lahat at Bellator 182.
When speaking to FIGHT SPORTS, Corrales attributed his recent run of victories on changing camps, as he joined the MMA Lab prior to Bellator 170. Corrales claimed that working with the Arizona based team has helped him “get his S*** together.”
To his opponents, he says not to blame him, but the coaches that push him to set a higher standard..
“Its all their fault. If you show up, and work your ass off you’ll become a better fighter.”
Corrales told FIGHT SPORTS that MMA saved him from going down the wrong path, and that it allowed him to combine his love for working out and training, with some of his more troublemaking characteristics. And while an injury slowed down Corrales in 2017, he’s hoping that after his third fight in 12 months on January 20th, that he can have three more fights in 2018, as he continues to tweak the little things in his game to make him a more complete fighter.
Watch Henry Corrales take on Georgi Karakhanyan at Bellator 192, this Saturday at 9pm EST on the Paramount Network (formerly Spike).
