Color me surprised:
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.
MMA Fighting confirmed the news with two sources close to the situation, as well as Parisyan himself Thursday afternoon.
Can’t root against Karo here – while I’m not exactly thrilled about the painkiller cocktail that cost him a win (that he shouldn’t have received anyway) against Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 94 (GSP vs. Penn II – man, time flies) or the lack of what could have been pure awesome between he and Hazelett, I can’t do anything but hope for the best. Good thing Hallman sucks, otherwise I’d be torn.
Also: Karo’s infractions <<<<<< Daley’s infractions. This is surprising to me, but I’ll shit my pants (Internet style) if Semtex is ever found in the Octagon again.
