Karo Parisyan takes on Cristiano Souza in the Spike TV prelim cards of Bellator 106
Karo "The Heat" Parisyan returns to the cage against unbeaten prospect Cristiano Souza on Bellator 106
Bellator’s upcoming PPV event gets even more loaded with the addition of the welterweight bout between UFC veteran Karo Parisyan and unbeaten prospect Crisitiano Souza in the Spike TV preliminary cards.
Karo Parisyan was once included in the mix of top UFC welterweights before his career encountered roadblocks due to injuries and drug problems. He holds victories over notable names like Nick Diaz, Josh Burkman, Chris Lytle and Matt Serra in his UFC career. In his last fight, Parisyan suffered a 2nd round Ko loss at the hands of former Bellator lightweight contender Rick Hawn.
