The main card for Bellator 160 is taking shape.
A pair of featherweight bouts were announced Monday for the Aug. 26 event in Anaheim, Calif., as A.J. McKee (4-0) will take on Henry Corrales (12-3) and Bubba Jenkins (11-2) squares off with Georgi Karakhanyan (24-6-1).
One of the sport’s top prospects, the 21-year-old McKee, from Long Beach, Calif., has competed in Bellator his entire pro career, and has one all four of his fights via first-round finish.
Corrales, of Whittier, Calif., has a three-fight losing streak, but they’re all to top-level competitors, as he’s gone toe-to-toe with Patricio Freire, Emmanuel Sanchez, and Daniel Straus.
Jenkins, meanwhile, is a former NCAA wrestling champion out of Arizona State and has won three consecutive fights. He’ll look to avenge his most recent loss when he rematches Karakhanyan, who has lost consecutive fights since scoring a technical submission over Jenkins at Bellator 132.
