Giorgio Petrosyan Faces Off With Jordan Watson in Bellator Kickboxing This December

While we've known for a while that Giorgio Petrosyan will be making his Bellator Kickboxing debut this December in Firenze, his opponent has remained unknown. That is, until now. Bellator has confirmed to LiverKick that Giorgio Petrosyan's first test inside of the Bellator ring will be against none other than British muay thai standout Jordan Watson. The two were scheduled to clash earlier this year until Watson was forced to pull out due to injury.

Watson is coming off of a victory over Sanny Dahlbeck earlier this year in the Yokkao ring and has been one of the names to help put the UK on the map over the past few years, participating in wars with fighters like Dahlbeck, Sitthichai, Saiyok, Khem, Steve Moxon, Aikpracha, Yodsanklai and more. This will prove to be an interesting test for Petrosyan.

Petrosyan took some time off after his loss to Andy Ristie in December of 2013 and since his return has been fighting, but the toughest test that he's had has been the young Josh Jauncey. Watson will be a great litmus test to see where the Greatest of All-Time stands currently and fans should welcome the chance to once again see the Doctor do what he does best.
