Karo Parisyan Criticizes His Fighter's Mental Weakness?
I believe there is a cliche about dark coloured cookware that applies here, but what really makes this video so great is how sincerely Karo Parisyan (18-5) imparts his "wisdom" on the mental side of MMA. Karo, of course, is universally known as the biggest head-case in the game. He has pulled out of his last two consecutive fights due to panic-attacks and was cut by the UFC as a result.
Almost better than that are the clips of Karo going berserk at cage-side as his fighter goes down, while everybody else in his vicinity tries to calm Parisyan down. Maybe Karo should work on controlling his wild temper a bit before making more bold commitments to return to glory like he does at the end of this video.
Don't get me wrong, Karo is a talented fighter, but he really brings criticism on himself when he acts like this. I mean, if you sensed Karo was ever in on the joke it would be one thing-- but, no, he really feels qualified to rip into this poor kid, which is plain hilarious...and just a little bit sad.
