Question 1: In your own words, who are you as a fighter?
Khashakyan: "I am a guy who stands inside the cage with no fear. Thats the way I fight, fearless. I have always been an athlete but in my purest form, I am a fighter."
Question 2: What can fans expect to see when you step inside of the CXF cage?
Khashakyan: "You are going to see a very powerful, intense individual. You are going to see two men enter a cage, and one of them is going to get very scared, but I guarantee you that will not be me!"
Question 3: Since your last fight, how have you improved yourself?
Khashakyan: "I started to take my diet more seriously, which has improved my weight cut. In the past, I think my performances have been affected by poor preparation on that end. In the cage, I am just more experienced. Your just going to see an upgrade."
Question 4: What do you know about your opponent Chris Beal?
Khashakyan: "He has more professional experience than I do, but I have been in just as many wars. He is quick and has good power, he is a very good fighter, so I know we will put on an exciting show".
Question 5: How would you describe your time with CXF MMA?
Khashakyan: "CXF MMA has really elevated the game to another level. The word is out among fighters, I know a lot of fighters who are trying to get a fight with CXF. They are one of the best promotions in the business. I am very proud to be their champion, they opened up many opportunities for me as a fighter."
Question 6: What is your prediction for the fight?
Khashakyan: "I will overwhelm my opponent, and if he is man enough to stand in front of me, then he too must fall!"
