Karo Parisyan returns at Impact Fighting Championships in Australia on July 10

Karo “The Heat” Parisyan will next strap on the gloves against Brazilian Luis Dutra Jr. at Impact Fighting Championships in Australia on July 10. The former UFC welterweight standout was unable to reach an agreement with Strikeforce this week so instead opted to join fellow UFC outcasts Paul Daley and Josh Barnett on the upstart promotions inaugural Aussie card.

“I [haven’t] fought for a year-and-a-half, (so) it’s exciting…time to get on top again,” Parisyan told MMAJunkie.com.

Parisyan (18-5-0) last saw action at UFC 94 in January 2009, defeating Dong Hyun Kim by split decision. The result was later changed to a no-contest when a post-fight drug test revealed the presence of prescription painkillers. He was later released from the world’s premiere MMA organisation after pulling out of his scheduled UFC 106 bout with Dustin Hazelett in November 2009.

    That’s funny that they got Daley and Barnett too. They should call the promotion “Outcast Fighting Championships” – OFC!!!

    I agree, I can’t belive they got all three. The names alone will help get the company off the ground. Daley wasted no time locating work.

    Wonder if they have anything for Kimbo.

    Do the Aussie’s have the same drug policy as Japan? Maybe they can get Bonds to ref the fights and A-Rod to do commentary.
