With his originally scheduled opponent Hector Lombard unable to enter the U.S. because of visa issues, Karo Parisyan (17-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will instead fight Ryo Chonan (14-7 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC 78. And Chonan’s original opponent, Thiago Alves (12-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC), will instead fight UFC veteran Chris Lytle (24-14-5 MMA, 3-6 UFC).

I got Karo by late submission, and Thiago by decision. I know more people than not are going to say that it will be Karo by decision and Thiago by KO, but I am not feeling it here.

haha, i am sad to say that i am one of those people. i think that chonan has better JJ than people think and will not be subed by karo. i think this will be an exciting fight, but the experience of these two fighters will make it be a great fight, but end in a decision. look for a couple of judo throws by karo, and i also wouldn't be surprised if both of these fighters wanted to bang with eachother and for this to turn inot a 3 round sluggfest. as for thiago, his standup is vicious. if lytle stands with him, the say lights out to lights out. i think lytle will try to bring this to the ground after tasting a couple of silva's punches to no-avail. silva will keep this standing and score a second round KO in my opinion.
