Oktagon/Bellator Kickboxing Results from Italy: Petrosyan Brothers Pick Up Victories

Credit: Wagner Mela

Yesterday in Torino, Italy the yearly tradition that is the Oktagon event happened, this one the biggest yet, working with Venum Victory World Series and Bellator. The Bellator portion of the event will be at the bottom of the post if you are looking to avoid spoilers for the American Spike TV broadcast of the Bellator Kickboxing event on Friday, April 22nd. 

On the Victory World Series portion the Petrosyan brothers both walked away with decision victories over their respective opponents. For Giorgio he is getting back into his groove after his lengthy time away from the ring. In his last few fights he has looked good, but it would be hard to argue that there wasn't some ring rust. As he's taken more and more fights he has started to look more like his polished self. While his opponent did change for this fight multiple times, he still was able to handle Ravy Brunow and put on a Petrosyan-like performance.

Giorgio Petrosyan (R3 - Decision) Ravy Brunow 

Chingis Allazov (R? - TKO) Wu Sihan 

Armen Petrosyan (R3 - Decision) Wang Tengyue 

Igor Bougaienko (R3 - Decision) Bruno Sousano 

Tarik Totts (R3 - Decision) Wang Shanwei 

Gloria Peritore (R3 - TKO) Li Mingrui 

~Bellator Spoilers Below~

As for the Bellator Kickboxing debut, there weren't a lot of surprises here, but there were some. It's interesting to note that the ISKA Championship bout between Karim Ghajji and Mustapha Haida was indeed on the Bellator card and there was a photo of Scott Coker standing with Ghajji, wearing the ISKA title. On their debut instead of focusing on their own branded titles they had a title fight for an outside governing body, which may set a precedent for future events. 

Melvin Manhoef fell to Alexandru Negrea, which is interesting considering Manhoef is challenging for Bellator's Middleweight Championship in MMA coming up and they've been keeping the rematch between Schilling and Manhoef on the back burner for a bigger show. I'd say it's now or never. Ghajji was able to defeat Haida in what looks to be the best fight of the night, one that I'm definitely looking forward to watching. Raymond Daniels delivered on his promise of a big knockout victory with a spinning back kick to the live to put away Francesco Morrica in short order. 

Kevin Ross entertained, as always, against Matteo Taccini and picked up a decision while Denise Kielholtz also went to a decision against Veronica Vernocchi. This show airs on Friday, April 22nd at 11pm Eastern time on Spike TV.

UPDATE: Ghajji won both the Bellator Kickboxing and ISKA 165lbs Championships.
