Not too long until the Weasel will return to the Bellator cage as he will square off with fellow featherweight Karakhanyan (24-4-1) as the co main event of Bellator 147. The event ist set to take place on December 4th in San Jose/California. Karakhanyan was originally scheduled to face the champion Freire in June, but tore his cross ligaments and Daniel stepped in. A dominant first round would end with a knockdown, which many thought was the end of the fight only to find out that the referee had ended the first round. Daniel came out of his corner to finish the fight and pressed his foe against the fence- it was a moment of carelessness that cost him the fight as Pitbull countered him with a left hook that send Daniel to the floor and made the referee step in to stop the fight.
These events lie in the past and Daniel hasn´t lost his sight on the title as he will do everything in his powers to work his way back to gold!
