Karl Amoussou made his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2006. When the native Frenchman made his Bellator debut in 2011, he had plenty of international experience under his belt. Amoussou, a notoriously fast starter, has earned more than half of his wins in the first round.
Though "Psycho" entered Bellator as a middleweight, he has truly found his groove at 170 pounds. In the season six tournament quarterfinals, he quickly dispatched of Chris Lozano and followed his performance up with a gutsy decision win over previously unbeaten David Rickels. He then defeated three-time tournament vet Bryan Baker in the Season Six Welterweight Tournament Finals at Bellator 72 with a first-round heel hook. The win earns him a world title shot at Ben Askren, a fight likely to happen fall 2012.
