Georgi Karakhanyan Says He Nearly Quit During His WSOF 7 Win
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.08.2013



Georgi Karakhanyan spoke last night after submitting Lance Palmer to win the inaugural WSOF featherweight title. Check out the highlights:

On nearly giving up after getting poked in the eye: "I was really close to saying I couldn't continue. I didn't even start to see clear until the beginning of the third round."

On his win: "I'm really happy with my performance. My fight was going into deep waters, and it was all about the heart and the mental – how tough I could stay. I felt I could find the finish. I knew I could get the finish and I'm extremely happy I did it."

On nearly submitting Palmer with an armbar and then a heel hook: "The first armbar I went for, his arm popped. Of course, he didn't tap. Then I went for a heel hook and his knee popped. So I was impressed how tough he was."

On keeping with his gameplan: "I knew if we went to the ground, I could get him because I attack differently than any other MMA fighter. If he took me down, I wasn't worried. So I was satisfied with my wrestling."

On getting his first world title: "I had to stay strong mentally there, and I think my experience played a role. I'm very happy to be the first WSOF champion."
