Karo Parisyan Wants to Face Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 17 on September 24th

Former UFC welterweight title contender, Karo Parisyan admits “God willing” that he would love an oppertunity to face Japanese legend, Kazushi Sakuraba at DREAM 17 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan on September 24th, 2011. Parisyan will be back in action next month when he takes on Jordan Smith on the Amazon Forrest Combat fight card.

Parisyan, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“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.”
