Karo Parisyan doesn’t get stumped by too many questions. But when you ask the welterweight contender what keeps him motivated after all the ups and downs he has experienced in an amazing 11-year journey through mixed martial arts, he falls silent. “I don’t know,” he chuckles. “I always find an answer for something.”

Born in Yerevan, Parisyan and his family moved to California when he was a child, and by the age of eight he was training in judo with the legendary Gene LeBell, by 14, he had discovered mixed martial arts, and at 16, he was fighting grown men for money. But while Parisyan bounced around the MMA circuit over the next few years, it wasn’t until 2003 and a spectacular submission win over Dave Strasser at UFC 44 that he truly arrived as a fighter to watch

He should but if he will have to win another big name match or two and then wait til the Hughes-GSP-Serra triangle gets figured out.

Karo would have to go through Diego or Koz before gettting a title shot IMO. After the way Diego beat his a$$, how could he jump over him for a title shot?

Karo should have already had a title shot. I personally think he would have handled Matt Hughes. Hopefully, we will see him challenge for the title soon. He has a style that could be very fun to watch in a title fight considering his fights go the distance quite often.

I think Karo should fight Fitch next and the winner of that fight should fight for the title once GSP has his belt back... I think GSP vs Karo or Fitch would be a very exciting match...
