Karo Parisyan: "I eat Jiu Jitsu guys for breakfast"

New Karo Parisyan interview.

Quote:
On his upcoming fight with Dustin Hazelett...

"I think it's a great style for me. It's a great matchup. I eat Jiu Jitsu guys for breakfast a lot of times. He's tough and he's got really good Jiu Jitsu and good standup. He's a well-rounded fighter, but I have fought 2 and 3-time Jiu Jitsu world champion guys man. And I'm a grappler myself so I really have some surprises for him. I have a tremendous respect for Dustin as an opponent. I don't know him as a person, but he looks like a nice guy. But like I said, I have been training a lot with tall and lanky guys. I think it is a great matchup due to the fact that I should be able to overpower him, beat on him a little bit and catch him in submissions myself. Dustin is not going to do anything that I've never seen before. He' not going to throw anything my way that I've never seen. He's good off of his back and a good Jiu Jitsu guy, but that's all he is."

"It is a very similar matchup as to when I fought Nick Diaz. The thing is Diaz just keeps coming forward and forward man and that's how he breaks his opponent and beats them, so I'm going to push the pace on Dustin. I'm going to go man and I'm going to try to finish him."

"It should be a real good fight, I hope, and I want to win with conditioning. I want to put him on his back and wherever it goes, I'm going to be comfortable. I want to beat him up decisively and I want to outcondition him. I've been working on my conditioning a lot, my strength, my hands and my grappling. But that's it man. I'm going to push the pace and try to get that year that he's been off to show up. I want to see that ring rust. I will control the cage in every aspect of the fight, take him down, beat him up and get a submission or try to knock him out."

"People don't understand man, when I talk, I am a real honest guy. When I am asked a particular question, I give a real honest answer. Sometimes it comes out wrong and people think I'm a douche and stuff. I don't think it comes off as a douche, I just think it's honest man. I think people misunderstand that a lot. They think I'm a douche, I love to talk and that I'm cocky. I'm never cocky man. When it comes down to the fight, I always respect my opponent and I know what could happen in the fight, so I'm not even cocky like that. It is a thin line between cocky and confidence. I like to show confidence and I think it's a misconception a lot of times on the way I come off, the way I talk and the things that I say."

Hahaha. Karo coming back in full force, I love it.

If he starts taking training seriously, I think he will make another run at the 170 pound title.

So how did that come out wrong Karo?

Still, he is an honest guy, and should be a good fight.

I love Karo but I think Dustin will be a bigger challenge than he thinks, but talk is talk and he loves to do it. I really hope to see him toss Dustin around though.

Not cocky!? If I have to listen to his 'my judo throws are the best' song one more time on UFC Undisputed 2009 I might turn green and muscle rip through my clothes in anger!

I'm just wondering how many people haven't seen Borat and don't get that joke. (Unless they just flat out didn't like it.)

Just in case -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYByp...eature=related

I like Karo, good fighter and I actually find him funny.
