Fight fans have been waiting for Karo Parisyan to get out of suspension and return to the octagon at UFC 106 , but now it turns out that the embattled UFC fighter won’t returning to your TV screen after all, and not anytime in the future – at least on UFC. UFC head honcho had some powerful words for Karo and his fans on his twitter. Strong language ahead.
“Karo Parisyan has [expletive] over the UFC, the fans and his opponent again!!! He will not be fighting saturday or ever again in the UFC,!!”
White said after Parisyan pulled out the day before weigh ins for his fight against Dustin Hazelett. Apparently, Karo Parisyan has struggled with depression, anxiety, and panic attacks over the years. The problem has become serious enough to impact Karo’s ability to live up to his contracts, but White isn’t hearing any of it. In a subsequent tweet, Dana White dismissed Karo’s reasoning.
“Pulled out of the fight the day before weigh ins again with a laundry list of excuses!!! Let the press ask karo why! Let him explain.”
Maybe White is just grouchy that UFC heavy-weight champ, and former WWE superstar, Brock Lesnar may not be returning to pump up pay-per-view buys either. Lesnar had surgery recently and is said to be suffering from an intestinal condition that could end his career.
