Camera Captures Heated Exchange Between Bellator’s Patricio “Pitbull” And Georgi Karakhanyan
By FCF Staff
Patricio “Pitbull” Freire and Georgi Karakhanyan clearly have some unresolved issues, as a camera recently captured a heated exchange they had at a Bellator poster signing session.
Freire’s brother, Patricky, is scheduled to fight Saad Awad this Friday at Bellator 141, and the two were signing posters for the event. Karakhanyan is a teammate of Awad, and when he encountered Patricio, the two began exchanging words. The featherweights fought in 2011 and Freire won the bout via third round stoppage. The two have reportedly been trading verbal jabs on Twitter recently as well.

Freire (24-2) is scheduled to defend the featherweight title versus Daniel Straus on November 6th. Karakhanyan (24-4-1) returned to Bellator in January and choked out Bubba Jenkins. The vet is currently not scheduled for a fight.
