Isaac DeJesus and Georgi Karakhanyan is set for a featherweight title match at Tachi Palace Fights 11.

Tachi Palace Fights’ Jeremy Luchau announced on Monday that Isaac DeJesus would step in the cage against Bellator veteran, Georgi Karakhanyan, for a featherweight title match at TPF 11.

Isaac DeJesus won the Tachi featherweight title at TPF 3, but never had an official defense of his belt. A supposed title defense against Rob McCullough came afterwards, but ended being a catch weight match since the latter came in larger than required. Unfortunately, Isaac DeJesus lost the match, and it was followed by a submission loss from Micah Miller.

However, he was able to knocked out Russ Miura at TPF 9, but the result was ruled to No Contest by the CSAC. It was after Isaac DeJesus tested positive to marijuana, which subsequently stripped off his title belt. At TPF 11, Isaac DeJesus will attempt to retrieve his title against Georgi Karakhanyan — who has a modest 2-2 record during his Bellator tenure.

More updates on TPF 11 are sure to come, so just keep it posted here at Fighting Insider.
