Karo Parisyan, So Sad

By Jason Kelly

Anytime a grown man is on his knees screaming “NO!” over and over again, that usually suggests he lost something he cherished dearly. That resembled Karo Parisyan following his UFC 123 loss to Dennis Hallman and possibly the fans final image of Karo in the UFC octagon. Parisyan knew this fight was a one shot deal, a must win situation to retain employment with the UFC and when the opportunity was taken from Karo, Karo sat on his knees in disbelief pleading to a higher power.

Karo had roller coaster career in the UFC and a rickety rapport with UFC head honcho Dana White yet, White gave Karo one more opportunity to verify he belongs in the UFC, and Karo failed. Parisyan has had mental evils disrupting him for quite some time and it affected his talent immensely. Karo’s most publicized issues were his battles with panic attacks and anyone who knows anything about panic attacks, will know the terrifying experiences affiliated with a panic attack. When the onset occurs and a person’s mind endures episodes of intense fear for no apparent reason, it affects their day-to-day life drastically. Now, imagine a fighter experiencing those fits, a person who is deemed as a tough guy suddenly feels inadequate to their peers. It is one of the worst mental issues for a fighter to deal with. Karo stated that his symptoms were under control and he was ready to get back in the cage and prove himself.

Karo “The Heat” Parisyan showed enormous potential in his early UFC career. He beat some great fighters and let us witness mind blowing judo throws, while sporting a toughness all men respect but, when Karo’s personal demons entered his life, his career suffered terribly. “The Heat” is young, physically healthy, and he has a want to fight at a high level but, the personal issues he embodies may route his career to a sudden halt. It is official that Parisyan has been released from the UFC but, that does not mean he will stop fighting, it also does not mean Karo lost to Hallman due to Karo’s previous issues. However, Karo did not appear to be the same fighter he used to be. That could be simply because Karo had a bad night, a result of the mental taxing he underwent, or perhaps Karo is still affected by his illness and cannot focus on his training and battle the monsters inside his head simultaneously.

Parisyan insists his panic attacks are behind him and he is ready to fight but, we all know fighters will rarely admit that their going through health issues of any sort. As bad as Karo wants to display his skills to the world, he needs to make sure that he is mentally healthy first. It is well known that the biggest part of the fight game is mental toughness and Karo has an illness that cripples his mental abilities in day-to-day life, let alone fighting inside a cage. Wherever Karo intends to venture with his career, I wish him the best of luck. When an illness of any kind, mental or physical, takes over a person’s body or mind it is a sad thing to watch, and Karo’s lasting image inside the octagon as it stands now, is oh so sad.

Nice one. I really hope he does overcome this, he could still be a force in SF and has the name to get a contract there.

True, they dont have any real challengers at WW for Diaz and Karo has a win over him. I can def see SF picking him up so that Diaz can avenge his loss.

I don't think he has much of a career left even in strikeforce. If they do pick him up it will just be as someone already mentioned, to feed him to Diaz. He didn't look like he was in shape at all for the Hallman fight, and if you can't get motivated for a fight you know is your last chance, you aren't going to be a successful professional fighter.

Maybe it was mental issues as well, but whatever the issues were, it doesn't matter, whatever it is, Karo doesn't have it anymore.

Panic attacks are Karo's reason for his bad fights? Are you freaking kidding me?

I've had Panic attacks since I was about 14, I have them almost every single night and sometimes during the day. They are very bad, yes, but they DO NOT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM mess up your day to day life. Unless Karo is having a panic attack 15 hours out of his 24 hour days, they are not affecting his fights or his career whatsoever, and that is very, very, very, VERY unlikely.

I thought he was on drugs, and that was the reason why his life was messed up? Seriously, if panic attacks were ruining his life/career, he has way more issues he should be working out.

I think the ultimate insult belongs on Denis Hallman.

"Wow you suck so bad Hallman knocked you out! YOUR FIRED!"

I'm amazed hallman hasn't gotten offended. I mean most forum troll could punch out denis hallman standing....

I dont think panic attacks are the only reason that Karo has fallen so far, but I do think its possible that they did contribute to it. Real, serious anxiety issues can be extremely difficult to deal with, even when properly medicated. I has some pretty serious anxiety issues when I was in high school (all kinda related to deaths in my family) and it made my daily life almost impossible to deal with for a few months. I cant imagine what it would be like, trying to deal with those kind of mental issues and going in front of thousands of people in a crammed arena and millons of people on television.

Severe anxiety is one thing, panic attacks are another. There's a large portion of the population that have panic attacks daily, nightly, or just every so often.

If his excuse is that he has severe anxiety and can't focus on training much, then it is understandable. The exact words used, though, were "panic attacks", which although very bad, in no way shape or form ruin your life or stop you from doing anything.

The author might just have used the wrong nomenclature. Obviously Karo Parisyan stated he had some sort of panic attacks that affected his training routine. Maybe his panic attacks have become a panic disorder and that usually affects the daily life.
