World Champion Boxer Vic Darchinyan Considering Move to MMA

Author: Jesse Denis

Boxing’s undisputed Super Flyweight Champion Vic Darchinyan has recently stated that he is interested in making a transition to MMA sometime in the near future. Darchinyan, who recently moved up to bantamweight in an attempt to become a three division champion, was last seen in the ring on July 11, 2009 when he dropped a decision to IBF Bantamweight Champion Joseph Agbeko.

"At the right time, I want to have a go at a cage fight," he told The Daily Telegraph. Unlike most boxers who choose to make the switch in fight sport, Darchinyan has already had some grappling experience. "I've done wrestling since I was very young, so I believe it's something I could compete at if I wanted to."

Darchinyan’s father, a former Olympic wrestling coach for Armenia, began training Darchinyan in wrestling at a very young age. Combined with his experience as a world class boxer with a record of 35 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw, Darchinyan’s background in wrestling could be key in helping him transition to MMA. Darchinyan has recently trained with Australian James Te Huna, who will be making his Octagon debut at "UFC 110: Nogueira vs. Velasquez."
