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.

    I’m not surprised that this happened, just at the timing. It’s just a wee bit premature to welcome him back already, he’s had only one fight outside the UFC, and there’s no reason to believe that he’s overcome his issues.

    id be ok with this if he had earned his way back in… as it is this aint cool bro

    If Karo doesn’t screw this up, I would LOVE to see him versus Nate Diaz to settle their TUF beef.

    ^ That is an amazing idea.

  • Gina’s boy toy

    Gif never gets old. Welcome back Karo.

  • agentsmith

    Holy shit, Steve8675309, that’s genius! I bet Nate would jump all over that shit too.

    Or maybe he’d follow his brother’s example and suddenly declare he’s a 155er.

    Nate Karo yeah that didn’t even cross my mind. I would like to see that.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    That’s some shit that HAS to happen. Anything else for his first fight on PPV/TV would be a fucking shame.

  • Komodo

    Man I can’t even believe we’re coming up on 120… time is fucking flying indeed. Nate vs. Karo = someone get the man on the horn and set that shit up stat!

    Can’t wait for Subo’s post for when Daley gets back into the UFC

  • Schrute Boxe

    Paul Daley will be back in the UFC before the end of 2011
