Karo Parisyan, a constant in the welterweight division’s top
ten, returns to action at Ultimate Fighting Championship 78 to face Ryo Chonan,
who will make his debut not only in the Octagon but also at 170 pounds.
After a dominant performance in his last bout against Josh
Burkman, Parisyan is looking for another top-notch performance to keep climbing
the ladder in the ever-growing UFC welterweight division.
While Parisyan looks to take out the debuting Chonan, former
boxing pro turned mixed martial arts superstar, K.J. Noons will look for
championship gold this Saturday night in EliteXC.
Noons has made a very impressive transition from a
professional boxing career that is still underway to mixed martial arts where
he now calls EliteXC home.
In his last fight, he defeated highly touted fighter Edson
Berto, and now he will face his toughest test to date in Nick Diaz for the
EliteXC 160-pound championship.
Tune in tonight to the start of a huge week of coverage that
will include fighters from the UFC, EliteXC, Strikeforce and more.
