Sanchez Takes Decision At Bellator 218
Emmanuel Sanchez would need to go to the judges, but would walk out of Bellator 218 with another win over Georgi Karakhanyan.
Facing off in the main event of the live card from the Winstar Resort and Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, Sanchez would win across the board 29-28, improving from a majority decision win against Karakhanyan in 2017.
The former featherweight title challenger bounced back from his loss to Patricio Pitbull back at Bellator 209, while Karakhanyan has his Bellator return spoiled, as he made his return following a year long absence.
