Karo Parisyan couldnít put a finger on it, but he knew something was wrong in the months leading up to his bout with Thiago Alves last April.
Yea, his panic attacks started when Joe Silva and Dana White told him he was on the infamous chopping block if he loses his fight to Thiago Alves (just my specualtion).
He's seen all these other fighters cut from the UFC roster. My thoughts are that he tells them he's suffering from panic attacks, and they give him another chance. If he thinks his panic attacks were bad before the Alves fight, wait till he sees his next bout with panic atacks.
This is very peculiar to me. Karo seems like a very chill guy. Especially, when I met him he seemed very chill and fun loving. Didn't seem like he's the type of guy who loses focus preparing for fights. But, I'm very much looking forward to the Yoshida fight, I love Judokas and this is going to be an awesome match!

I dunno about Karo's panic attack shit. I was having panic attacks before too and my doctor said i have anxiety. I never had problems eating or focusing etc.. But it did affect my sleeping, I would wake up after only a few hours and not be able to get back to sleep. Unless he was under some kind of extreme stress and anxiety I dont know how it could affect him that badly. Knowing how Karo is, id say this more of an excuse and an exaggeration of symptoms.
I hope Yoshida whoops his ass.
WTF is up with the Karo hate?
I personally love the guy. He says the shit that every other fighter says, he just happenes to do it in front of a camera. Karo is the man!
He's an elite fighter. For all his faults (talent wise) he has still taken on the best and done well. He tools anyone not on his level and fights up to the level of his opponents. He's caught a few bad breaks (decisions, injuries, stoppage), and yet he's still right there. Talking shit, and backing it up.
WAR fuckin Karo
Karo is that guy that can go to the next level but chooses to fight on his basic instincts.
imagine Karo with GSP's cardio and conditioning. His striking probably will stay the same but that's all Karo needs to be at least top 3 in WW.

Karo is one of my top 3 favorite fighters along with Fickett and Belfort
I'm actually a big fan as well (definitely my favorite WelterWeight), but he makes it hard to say that at times.
In his defense: I will say Karo is definitely one of those dudes where I think a lot is lost in translation.
i can't stress this enough, most of you cunt muscles are emotional fucks. who cares if the fighter is a douchebag. Karo has always displayed his capabilities and i'm a fan of what he does in the octagon.
I hate Karo, and I think Yoshida will win by TKO in round 2.
Iíve always said that if I come in shape, I can be the best at 170. Hopefully, if I can annihilate Yoshida, I can avenge some of my old losses to Thiago (Alves) and Diego Sanchez. Then I can annihilate those guys. Iím ready to show that Iím the best.Ē
Bull shit. Why doesnt the guy just show up in shape from the word go? Im always hearing him say, well shit if i was in shape i would have one. Maybe he needs to buy a tread mill. Like Matt Huges said. I am not at all impressed by Judo.
