After suffering a disappointing, albeit perhaps controversial, loss to Thiago Alves at UFC Fight Night 13 in April, perennial welterweight contender Karo Parisyan (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) feels primed to once again work his way back to title contention.

Parisyan had been tentatively scheduled to face "The Ultimate Fighter 6" semifinalist George Sotiropoulos at UFC 87. However, Sotiropoulos was forced to withdraw due to injury.

A fight with Yoshiyuki Yoshida would be pretty cool, but I would think Karo wins this.

Karo needs to come with a big win here, and get a finish.

i think George is very talented but i dont think hes ready for a guy of Karos caliber just yet. Karo should have a rematch with sanchez if diego gets past luigi.

He's talking about Sotiropoulos.
