Exclusive: Karo Parisyan forced to pull out of UFC 106 due to addiction to pain killers

Dana White dropped the bombshell earlier this afternoon via his Twitter account, twelve-time Octagon veteran Karo Parisyan has been cut from the UFC due to his having pulled out of his anticipated UFC 106 welterweight clash with Dustin Hazelett.

According to White, “Pulled out of the fight the day before weigh ins again with a laundry list of excuses!!! Let the press ask karo why! Let him explain.”

Well FiveOuncesofPain.com has had the opportunity to ask why.

Longtime friend and training partner to Karo, along with being the head Jiu-Jitsu instructor down at Xtreme Couture, Neil Melanson recently received Parisyan’s blessing to clear the air regarding the circumstances surrounding his recent withdraw from Saturday evening’s card.

Karo Parisyan has suffered from a brutal battle with an addiction to pain-killers for some time now. The Armenian born Judo specialist was first introduced to the widely addictive drugs following a severe hamstring injury sustained training for a scheduled welterweight title clash with Matt Hughes that never came to fruition. A long series of injuries following the injury that prevented what would have been the biggest fight of his career has created the monster that currently haunts Karo today.

Check back with FiveOuncesofPain.com shortly as we will have a much more expansive explanation of the details surrounding Karo’s removal from UFC 106 as explained through close friend Neil Melanson in the coming hours.

Yea, whoops. I just read that this morning. All I had seen was the Karo had dropped but it didn't say why. Sorry! I guess it is a rather short jump.

At the end of the day no one to blame but himself.....

I dont know where he fights next, or if again...

This is terrible. I like Karo a lot and I hope he gets back on the track. And whoever thinks Karo is boring should get their eyes checked. One boring fight doesn't make a boring fighter.
