Nearly a week has passed since Karo Parisyan pulled out of UFC 106 and subsequently received his walking papers from the organization.

UFC president Dana White first announced Parisyan's withdrawal from his main-card bout with Dustin Hazelett on the eve of the Las Vegas show.

And while White said he had "no idea" the veteran welterweight fighter was going to pull out of the show, he said he had tried to help Parisyan with his troubles numerous times in the past.

"Karo Parisyan has a lot of personal problems – mental, emotional, physical," White told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) over the weekend. "He's got all kinds of problems."

I'm kind of interested to hear what Dana White did, and what were the problems that required his help. Also I want Karo to fess up about why he really pulled out. Because otherwise we all believe he was just either scared, or not training.

Well i can guarantee he's not scared to fight, and it makes me mad that karo is out of UFC.
I hope he can sort his **** out and find an organisation that will accept him after this

If the guy comes clean about his problems and actively looks to get over them, he will be back in the UFC when he's ready to fight again.
