Months after being forced off TUF 8 due to a nose injury that drew a medical suspension, Karn Grigoryan returned to action this past weekend in a big way. He KO'd previously unbeaten BJJ Black Belt Daniel Rial in just over a minute, a win Grigoryan and trainer Gabriel Gonzaga hope earns him another shot in UFC.Article
with what i saw on tuf, i can't believe someone actually got ko'd by his stand up.
I know Karn from the gym, and I don't think his fight on TUF was an accurate portrayel of his skill. Partially I think this was due to him not having fought in quite some time, and maybe a little bit of nerves.
He's very raw, but he's constantly improving. Karn has some really heavy hands, ridiculous strength(especially in his grip) and a ton of heart. He actually has a background in Judo and Karate, but he's been training for a while now with Marco Alvan and Gabriel...I think maybe two years. He has a ways to go, but he has a bright future. If he gets added to the TUF finale I wouldn't be surprised if he fought at 185.
