Karo Parisyan is penciled in to collide with Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim (11-0-1) in a welterweight tilt at UFC 94, which is scheduled for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 31, according to MMAWeekly.com.

Parisyan — who just signed a new eight-fight contract extension with the promotion — is currently recovering from an injury that forced him to withdraw from a fight against Yoshiyuki “Zenko” Yoshida at UFC 88: “Breakthrough” in September literally hours before showtime.

It was an unfortunate situation that was made more curious with his recent admission the he has been dealing with panic attacks — numerous fans claimed “The Heat” merely had a case of cold feet.

Regardless, the Armenian was stopped by rising star Thiago “Pitbull” Alves in the second round because of strikes in his most recent performance at UFC Fight Night 13. The typically gracious Parisyan was uncharacteristically sour on the stoppage, claiming that referee Steve Mazzagatti was premature in his decision to halt the bout.

damn it you beat me to this one.

But on the fight, I dont see either guy finishing the other. I will prolly lean towards karo by UD, unless "Stun Gun" is a good size underdog.

i will probably take karo in this one, but i liked stun gun from his fight with matt brown. He seems like a charasmatic fighter who worked hard for that win, which i agreed with.

against karo, i wouldn't be surprised if he pulled off an upset. He is still undefeated and i'm not so sure about karo and how he'll be when e shows up.

as of now, karo UD; but that could switch to Stun Gun UD before then

**lets just hope this fight happens, yoshida wouldve been more exciting imo, but this will do just fine**

If Matt Brown gave Kim fits, I see this being a pretty easy fight for Karo. (Especially since he's training with Greg Jackson) Granted Karo isn't a striker like Brown, his striking has improved quite a bit since he entered the UFC. I think Karo will be able to get him to the ground and control him either ground and pound or armbar.

DO YOU KNOW WHO KARO IS? DO YOU KNOW WHO HE IS ON THE STREETS? I DON'T. I just remember him giving Nate Diaz crap, I'm going to have to go with Kim here too.

Karo is boring. and all he does is look for a big judo slam. sorry to tell him but Kim is gonna be the one slammin him in in this fight. Im pretty sure kims judo is better than karos

I hope so to be honest, I was indifferent to Karo until he was on TUF. I won't lie he has a tough UD though.

If this was a judo match I would take Kim. I'm still undecided, but I don't think Karo will be able to bore his way through this one, at least I hope not. I want Kim to slam him and TKO him.
