Karo Parisyan had another dominant performance at Ultimate
Fighting Championship 78 instituting a ground and pound attack to perfection,
dispatching of former Pride middleweight Ryo Chonan.
Still waiting for his opportunity to fight for the UFC
welterweight title, Parisyan will talk about the fight and what challenges lie
ahead for him in the 170-pound division.
Also joining the show will be American Top Team standout
Thiago Alves, who pulled off “fight of the night” at UFC 78 picking up a win
over Chris Lytle.
Alves was able to drop Lytle in the first round. Due to some
cuts inflicted in the fight, doctors stopped the action. “The Pitbull” got the
victory and a nice bonus for his efforts.
Closing out the show tonight will be Jorge Santiago, who won
the historic Strikeforce middleweight tournament last weekend by knocking out
both Sean Salmon and Trevor Prangley.
Santiago finished Salmon in just under a minute and his TKO over
Prangley is the first such loss the current Bodog Fight middleweight champion
has ever endured.
