Jordan Breen reports on the unintentionally hilarious pre-fight press conference in Brisbane, for Impact FC's first event this Saturday, starring Josh Barnett, Karo Parisyan, and Sokoudjou: "The puddle of water continued to hungrily devour the tile floor. The Australian media were keen to ask about sporting crossover: Former UFC champion Carlos Newton was asked about the recent State of Origin, the nation's most beloved rugby league competition, while Ferreira was asked why Brazil's national side lost at the World Cup. "DUNGA!" Ferreira exploded before his manager and translator Tiago Okamura even finished translating the question. "Dunga took the team down!" he added, giving the former Brazilian coach a literal thumbs down. As the soccer conversation went on, an anxious Parisyan drummed loudly on his thighs before standing up and saying quietly, "I can't sit down, man." When Ferreira's opponent, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, spoke, it was again Barnett who took the media reins. "Your background is in judo, but you prefer to use your muay Thai in fights," Barnett earnestly inquired. "Why do you not use the skills you've worked on your whole life?" "Well, with fighters like Arona or Nogueira, if I throw them, they'll submit me. That's why I focus on striking, what I love to do," Sokoudjou explained. "With judo, you just throw, there's not so much ground game." "Not exactly, but whatever," the roaming Parisyan interjected from the back of the room. The room fell silent. With no response, Parisyan rolled his eyes to discredit the Cameroonian, whom he actually beat in judo competition nearly a decade ago. Parisyan continued his stroll around the room before settling on the couch next to me. "What are you writing?" he asked. "I'm writing about you walking around, rolling your eyes," I smiled."

Dustin Hazelett Speaks On Karo Parisyan Pulling Out of the Fight: "He had disrespected me and the art of jiu-jitsu by saying he can eat jiu-jitsu guys for breakfast. I was looking forward to standing up and defending my art. It really sucks this happened, especially after all the things he said. And then he just pulls out of the fight." "I was feeling really good and ready to fight. But everything happens for a reason." "They said I'll get my show and win money, which is just really cool of them. They didn't have to do that, pay the win money too. But they did, and it's great." HT: MMAJunkie UFC 106: Ortiz vs. Griffin 2 coverage

Karo Parisyan - "I eat Jiu Jitsu guys for breakfast": "I think Dustin Hazelett's a great style for me. It's a great matchup. I eat Jiu Jitsu guys for breakfast a lot of times. He's tough and he's got really good Jiu Jitsu and good standup. He's a well-rounded fighter, but I have fought 2 and 3-time Jiu Jitsu world champion guys man. And I'm a grappler myself so I really have some surprises for him. I have a tremendous respect for Dustin as an opponent. I don't know him as a person, but he looks like a nice guy. But like I said, I have been training a lot with tall and lanky guys. I think it is a great matchup due to the fact that I should be able to overpower him, beat on him a little bit and catch him in submissions myself. Dustin is not going to do anything that I've never seen before. He's not going to throw anything my way that I've never seen. He's good off of his back and a good Jiu Jitsu guy, but that's all he is. I'm a grappler myself, a Judo artist. I have good takedowns and my standup has come a long way, so it's a very good matchup man. I can't wait. I can't wait to get in the cage and it's going to be a lot of fun." More at Fighthype.com UFC 106: Ortiz vs. Griffin 2 coverage

Ryo Chonan updated his blog last night: "I'm surprised to hear about Yoshida. His opponent, Karo Parisyan, backed out at last minute. Karo said he was in the best shape when I talked to him yesterday. I wonder what happened to him. Yoshida's mom came here to see his fight all way from Japan and he had a hard time dieting for this fight. I'm sorry for him. Charged with a role as the only fighter who represents Japan, I'm going to have a great performance tomorrow." Translation from SukiMMA

Karo Parisyan training with Greg Jackson: Parisyan: I’ll be heading to Albuquerque July 12th to get ready for my next fight which is September 6th against Yoshida, a Japanese guy who choked out the kid ("War Machine") from the TV show (The Ultimate Fighter 6). So I’m fighting him September 6th, and I’m heading out to New Mexico to train with Rashad (Evans), (Georges) St. Pierre, and everybody else. Parisyan: I have so much anger built up inside of me I just feel bad for whoever stands in front of me. But you know, its very important bro. I want this fight, but eventually I’ll fight Thiago on paper. In the rematch its going to be disturbing what I’m going to do to Thiago Alves. I promise to you, and I promise to everyone else it will be disturbing what I do to Thiago Alves. But its like I’ve never been stopped like that in a fight, never been robbed like that in a fight. At this point right now, I just have to think about my future fight. I can’t think about the fight with Alves, I can’t (think) that I wasn’t there mentally, that I was burnt out. All this shit was going on inside my head, but I can’t think about any of that stuff. Thiago, he won on paper, he beat me, he beat Matt Hughes, he deserves it. He took the fight very serious and the best man won that day. But at this point I want to make an example of Yoshida and everyone else who’s going to stand in front of me until I can get my title shot and get my title. Eventually it will happen I just gotta take the fight game very serious. My worst enemy has always been that I’ve been too talented to train, and now it's catching up with me. I gotta start training or those guys will start catching up with me.
