Karo Parisyan is ready to return to the octagon after his upset loss to Thiago Alves.

In fact, Parisyan already knows the date of the fight, but not the opponent.

"I will be fighting August 9 in Minnesota," Parisyan said, "There are a couple of names being thrown around, but there’s no opponent yet."

Parisyan isn’t the only member of his family stepping back into the cage this summer. Ultimate Fighter season five runner-up Manny Gamburyan also has a match-up set.

“I am back in the Octagon in August against Rob Emerson,” said Gamburyan.

I'm not as sold on Manny killing Rob. Don't get me wrong I think Manny will win but Rob will put up a fight. He's a big strong 155er. He needs to definetally work on his takedown defense and keep this fight standing because he will have a huge advantage there. As for Karo coming back I can't wait to see who his opponent is.

You're getting me super excited, though I know Jake Shields will never try to make the jump to the UFC. As it seems he's content with not fighting top competition...or fighting at all. I'd love to see Karo beat another Cesar Gracie boy though.
I can see someone like the winner of the Davis/Swick fight, or even Matt Serra.

As for Manny getting Rob Emerson, that's complete BS. Nate Diaz got tougher competition as he continued to beat people. Manny's beating people, and all he's getting is someone who finished way behind him on the show?

im a little disappointed that just about every guy on tuf 5 (diaz, wiman, lauzon) and mac danzig are all getting thier shot at a big step up in competition and manny is arguably the best of the bunch and he is still getting c level fights. i really want to see manny in there against a tyson griffin or marcus aurellio or even spencer fisher.

I'm not too excited about seeing Emerson get beat up. There are more exciting match-ups for Manny. This fight wont do anything to help his career.

Emerson is too one dimensional and manny will dispose of him quickly and pretty much however he chooses to.

Then it will be bye bye to Emerson, due to the ongoing roster cuts.......

We could make the argument that Manny was #1 on the show nd here they are still not letting him step up. No disrespect to emerson but shouldn;t gamburan be considered ahead of him by finsishin in front of him on the show? explain to me how gamburyan beats wiman and wiman gets a good prospect in tavares and then explain to me how he beat Lauzon decisively and then Lauzon gets the main event while Manny is on the prelims for the same event? i just doesnt make sense,

As far as Karo goes i wanna see him fight a top guy, i dotn want him to face some up and comer and play the role of gatekeeper I'd like o see him vs kos or swick/davis but i dont know if its too soon for those guys anyways my guess is it will be anthony johnson, think about that one

He definitely still is. It'd be awesome for him to come to the UFC and have his overrated ass handed to himself.

cant wait to watch rob get annihilated by manny. i think that if his shoulder didn't dislocate, he would have beat diaz too. i want manny and nate to have a rematch
