Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

Normally a fighter pulling out of fight with a late injury on the day of the weigh-in is shocking. In the case of Karo Parisyan, it didn't surprise me one bit. We sat down with the 25-year old longtime UFC vet and he spoke like a different person. Parisyan is always a great interview, this conversation was interesting but Karo wasn't his typical loose, confident fighter.

I was really freaked out by the convo and immediately said to folks around the radio set, "I don't think he should be fighting."

What happened? Did Karo have another attack? It would be ashame to see this become a long term problem for Parisyan. He's a young guy and has some good wins under his belt over Nick Diaz, Matt Serra, Drew Fickett, Josh Burkman and Ryo Chonan.
