Karo Parisyan has confirmed the UFC is currently in negotiations with both Hayato Sakurai and former Olympian Hector Lombard as potential opponents for the 25-year-old welterweight contender at UFC 78 Saturday, Nov. 17 in Newark, N.J.
I think I’ve said this before, but who the fuck does Karo have to beat to get a title shot? This poor bastard was probably told he was next in line to fight Georges for the belt before Georges dropped the ball against Serra. Now a guy Karo beat is holding the belt, and Karo isn’t going to get a crack at that shit until both Matt Hughes and Georges St Pierre get their turns first.
But here’s my issue: they already had their fucking turns. How in the hell does it seem fair that Georges St Pierre will be getting his THIRD title-shot bout before Karo has even gotten one? How is it fair that Matt Hughes only had to beat Chris Lytle in an unimpressive fashion to get a shot at winning his belt back? Yeah, I know … it’s not fair, but that’s life right?
Well, I don’t see why we should be taking this lying down. Hughes vs Serra is already locked for New Years Eve, but there’s still time for the fans to know Karo Parisyan deserves his shot before GSP. If Karo gets the win at UFC 78, he should get the winner of Serra/Hughes. Make Georges St Pierre fight the winner of Sanchez/Fitch for sloppy seconds. And that’s all I have to say about that shit.
