I hope like hell that we get to see the old "heat". And the match-up is a good one for him. It will be 15 mins of Karo putting a beatdown oin Hallman.......IF? we see the old Karo!?

I think some of you guys are forgetting just how bad Karo's conditioning has been over the last few fights. It could go either way, but I'm betting Karo is completely gassed within 5-6 minutes and just gets controlled for the rest of it.


That is a pretty big issue, and I wonder if he's working with Greg Jackson at all anymore.



Yeah, a healthy and prepared Karo I think would easily keep the fight standing and pummel Hallman, but looking at his performance during the last couple of years, I have a hard time picking him against any opponent that can go 3 rounds.

Less than a year after Dana White tweeted that Karo Parisyan would never fight again in the UFC, "The Heat" has been welcomed back to the organization and offered a fight against Dennis Hallman at UFC 123 in Auburn Hills, Mich.


So this means Paul Daley will be back! lol

Also means, never believe what Dana White has to say!!

Is it me or does Karo have 9 lives? He must be on #11 by now!! j/k

All I can say is that Karo didn't commit assault.

Eh, not really expecting much. It was pretty much documented that he was still having anxiety attacks/panic attacks leading up to his fight against Ben Mortimer. I guess its okay he is fighting Hallman, but not really expecting some "new and improved" Karo. We will probably get the same Parisyan we saw against Ben Mortimer, which really isnt much; probably enough to squeek by Hallman, but nothing too impressive IMO.

I just want to see him fight Nate Diaz. Those two have a score to settle. Karo tried to bully him and Nate was having none of it. Even though he was way smaller at the time and Karo was a pretty bug name in the UFC. Lets see how they get on now Nate has filled out a bit and gained more experience.

I can't wait to see Karo back in the octagon. Win or lose I'm just going to be happy to see him back.

Count me in on this as well. Would love to see him get thrown around, though Nate has shown he has some nice hip tosses himself.

I forget... was Karo released for steroids or for pulling out of his fight at the last minute due to a panic attack?
