Man, if only Karo Parisyan’s training was as good as his smack talking. Check out his thoughts on the Alves loss:
“(Do I) accept the decision that I got [expletive] in my ass with no lube?” Karo asked. “Yeah, I can accept that. Other than that, (have I) accepted the loss? I have no other choice but to accept the loss because of what happened to me.
“But as far as it [being] an early stoppage? Yes, I still think it was an early stoppage. Because Matt Serra punched me, almost took my lights out, and he was still hitting me, and they didn’t stop that fight. Then they stop a fight where I get dropped and rocked and I eat three punches on my shoulder and one to the neck, and they stop the fight. To seal the deal, they should’ve let the guy throw two to three more punches on my face solid before they stopped the fight.”
The loss was especially disappointing to Parisyan because it knocked him out of immediate contention for the welterweight title. Parisyan said he was ill-prepared for the fight and hopes for an opportunity to avenge the loss at some point.
“No disrespect to Thiago or his camp,” Parisyan said. “I have tremendous respect for all of them. But three years ago, if I would have looked at Thiago as an opponent, I would have laughed. ‘Come one, man. Give me some real competition.’ But today with me, just because of lack of training, and a lack of motivation for several reasons in my life, Thiago became a challenge. And unexpectedly, I lost the fight. I still can’t believe it.
“At the same time I will tell Thiago, God willing, eventually I’ll meet you one more day in your career, and it will be disturbing to watch what I do to you.”
Karo better get his shit in check quick, because he says his next fight will be against Yoshiyuki Yoshida.
