Karo “The Heat” Parisyan is out of UFC 106 after failing to acquire a license in Nevada, according to Parisyan, due to not having the money to pay his fine from previously being suspended after testing positive for a three different pain killers following his UFC 94 bout with Kim Dong-hyun.

“There’s a lot of problems going on. They won’t re-license me unless I (expletive) pay them,” Parisyan told MMAWeekly.com. “I had to pay the $32,000 fine in order to fight. I never paid because I never had the money. I don’t know if I’ll be able to come back.”

I find it hard to believe that Dana would let Karo pull out of the fight solely because he couldn't pay the fine. Surely the UFC would pony up the $32,000 if that's all that was keeping him from being licensed.

Then again, I could be wrong. I have been a couple times before...

Dana even said he will never fight again in UFC. Sadly, I'm not surprised this happened again. Physically, Karo had all the tools to be a great fighter, maybe even a future champion. But mentally and emotionally, whether it's out of his control or not, it's just not there.

As far as Hazelett for those wondering, he's off the card but will be paid hsi show money and what his win bonus would have been.

I completely agree. I hate to see him wasting his talent like this.

Hopefully he can sort everything out and get back to fighting soon.

I don't think you wrong at all. He even says 'There’s a lot of problems going on" as to say that isn't the only problem. The other thing that sounds like there are other issues is “Everything is over bro. I’m just going to go home. Everything is ****** up. I’ve got to think about what I’m going to do for my career,” That sounds like he is done fighting.

Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer's side of the story is quite a bit different.


...Parisyan had already been fully licensed last January and was cleared to fight this Saturday. Kizer said Parisyan had not been required to take a pre-fight drug test for the painkillers he had been flagged for in January, as they would be tested the night of the bout.


Parisyan had contacted Kizer a few weeks ago to discuss a “nagging, lingering injury,” Kizer said, and asked what proper medications he could take prior to the bout. Kizer said he instructed Parisyan that Tylenol and icing was the safest method, but encouraged the fighter to have his physician send in a letter stating his injuries and what medications he was taking for it, so the NSAC doctor could work with him.


Kizer spoke again with Parisyan within the last week to discuss a payment plan for the $32,000 fine the fighter had previously accrued. Kizer said that NSAC Chairman Pat Lundvall had agreed to disperse payment for the fine out of the fighter's show and win purse for this weekend.


“We knew (Parisyan) was having some financial difficulties and wanted to try and help him,” Kizer told Sherdog.com. It was agreed that $16,000 would be deducted from each purse and in the case of a loss, Parisyan would make further arrangements to settle up the remaining balance. Kizer said Parisyan seemed pleased with the arrangement.

from yelling, "don't you know who I am" like a mob boss in Tuf at Nate, to contesting the Alves stoppage to a completely lackluster performance against Dong Kim

Farewell Karo, your throws were fun to watch but that is where my love ends

I hate to jump to conclusions, but it sounds like Karo's got a monkey on his back. I guess time will tell.

I think this is Karo making excuses. He hasnt been in "fighting shape" since April 2008, even against Dong Hyn Kim, I thought he looked smaller and completely outta shape. I use to think he would be the one to give GSP a ride for his money, now I think even Manny tools him at the gym.

Karo use to be the best Judo practitioner in MMA, now I dont know what category i put him in

EDIT: BTW, I think I remember him quoting "I eat Jiu Jitsu guys up" or summin along those lines. If so, he shoulda taken out a line of credit and payed it back with his win bonus.

was just about to post that, it pretty much refutes what karo was saying, something doesn't seem right, but on the bright side I don't have to change my prediction on this fight for the 15th time.

Really I had Hazelett in my parley, he was one of my locks, it has not been the same Karo recently, Head is throwing off his balance

Don't forget when he spat inside the ring out of anger.

Karo's sub defense is very good, he's never been tapped, I thought he might take him down and lay on him boring style. with that said hazlett is better on the feet and grappling on the ground, I was waivering so much on this fight.

Hazelett versus Koscheck is what swayed me, he really took it to Koscheck and I really thought he would sub Karo or just plain out work him.
