From Hollywood California... He weight in at 170 pounds and brings to the ring a record of 14 wins with 2 loses. He is the 4 time international Champion and 6 time National Judo Champion!… Karo, The “Heat” Parisyan!

Some of the memorable highlights of the "Heat".... Everything started very early for Karo... while most kids were playing video games and riding their bicycles outside, Parisyan was training hard to reach his goals in Judo.

VAN NUYS, California. It was just another Wednesday night in Las Vegas. Karo Parisyan was in his hotel room and WEC 44 was on the television. Parisyan’s cousin and training partner, Manny Gamburyan, scored a win over Leonard Garcia. The following Saturday, Parisyan would be the one fighting.

Karo Parisyan doesn’t get stumped by too many questions. But when you ask the welterweight contender what keeps him motivated after all the ups and downs he has experienced in an amazing 11-year journey through mixed martial arts, he falls silent.

Love him or hate him, Karo Parisyan is a force to be reckoned with in the mixed martial arts. A veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, King of the Cage, World Extreme Cagefighting and several other promotions, he counts Matt Serra, Nick Diaz, Chris Lytle and Shonie Carter among his vanquished foes.
