UFC welterweight contender Karo Parisyan will look to bounce back from a controversial UFC Fight Night 13 loss to Thiago Alves and re-enter the title picture when he faces Yoshiyuki Yoshida in September.




There was nothing "Controversial" about Pitbull's demolishion of Karo. If Karo faught as well as he complainted he'd have taken down the belt a long time ago. You wanna be a the champ?! You better learn how to finish someone off. Karo's got the judo, thats for sure, but I'm none to convinced in his mixed martial arts. Fifteen minutes of pretty looking throws does not make a champion, and five months of wining about the title shot you never got does not sound like a champion either.

All his garbage about not wanting to fight because a loss would jeopardize his shot at a title is rediculous. Not only did Alves step in the Octogon and take him out, he accepted a fight against the greatest welterweight of all time less then two weeks later. IMO Karo has no guts at all.

As of now, I am officially on the Yoshida WAR Wagon!

I think i would favour Yoshida for the win here though. Most likely by a decision of some kind.




Look at Yoshida's last 10 or so fights again: Yoshida's sherdog page

I just dont see this guy not finishing Karo.

This should be a great fight, Yoshida is an awesome fighter with some sick GNP. I think Yoshida can pull out the dec.

WAR KARO!!!!!!


Amazing to see how he's an underdog by most people's standards. The guy gets caught once by "MMAPlaygroud's 3rd ranked Welterweight" and the best striker in the division, and he's all of the sudden a bum.

Yeah i like Karo hes amongst my favorite fighters..Win or Lose most of the time his fights are exciting.And his clip with Reggie Warren Jr is pretty funny.

Karo Vs Fickett...

Two of my favorite fights.

great! first Rashad Evans and now Karo? , change the event name to UFC 88 : Yawn



Couldn't be farther from the truth. Karo is an exciting fighter. At least in 99% of the fights I've ever seen. As for Evans vs. Chuck. Chuck will make this fight exciting don't be so down on this event.
