ACS #76 Karen Darabedyan & Sevak Magakian – Giving Back

Childhood friends Karen and Sevak are Armenian-American mixed martial artists, they are Judo Black Belts and hold black belts in many other martial arts as well as being Elite Grapplers. Karen is best known for fighting in WEC’s lightweight division, he also had a 12-0 amateur boxing record before he began MMA and is also the founder of KD MMA Training Center in Glendale, CA. Sevak was a contender on the Ultimate Fighter 12 Show. They both have been close friends of mine for a long time so it’s always great to catch up.
