Karo Parisyan recetnly appeared on MMAWeekly Radio and discussed his past and future, including a fight vs. Ryan Ford in which he was dominating until the doctor stopped it in the third (see below). According to Parisyan’s managers at Apex Sports Agency, a planned fight vs. legendary Japanese fighter Kazushi Sakuraba under the Dream banner in September was scrapped as Sakuraba may not be ready in time for the upcoming Dream card. Instead. The Heat will face Amazon Forest Combat in Brazil on Sept 14 against Jordan Smith at Amazon Forest Combat in Brazil on Sept 14.
“Anytime you lose a fight because of a stoppage, not a referee stoppage, but from a doctor’s stoppage, it’s always misfortunate and it’s always bad,” .
“Why I was really upset and frustrated was that they didn’t really try to stop my cut, they didn’t pick the correct procedures to stop the cut, stop the bleeding, and let’s get out there and fight.
“They didn’t even let the cut man in, they let the doctor in right off the bat. (The doctor) put his thumb on my forehead for like 30 seconds and he goes, ‘the blood won’t stop, maybe I got to stop the fight.’ Still, if I cut my finger, I put 30 seconds of pressure on it, and it wouldn’t stop my fight, the cut or the bleeding. Why wouldn’t you actually take the time to work on the cut, when I’m winning this fight?”
“I saw some clips and I saw his dumbass celebrating on the cage like he was kicking my ass and it got me really pissed. Man, it drove me nuts. I know deep down inside I won the fight. It was an unfortunate mishap, but you got to let the fighters continue.”
“I don’t like the drama. I’m sick of the drama because it follows you. Whatever you say people take it any way they can, they talk about it you know? I let go of my past. A lot of the stupid stuff that happened I let go of it.
“I need people to try and look forward with what I’m trying to do right now. Let them go based off of how he was in his last fight, ‘oh he was bad, okay good, let’s see him in his next fight,’ because God willing I could fight Sakuraba at the 24th of September in Dream. So, I got a lot of stuff ahead of me.”
