Reports have surfaced that UFC welterweight Karo Parisyan may pull out of his UFC 94 fight with Dong Hyun Kim for undisclosed reasons. UFC 94 weigh-ins are scheduled to take place later this afternoon at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
Early reports state that the UFC has major concerns as to Parisyan’s status and that they’ve already signed on a backup plan just in case Parisyan can’t go.
Rick Story would be making his UFC debut in Parisyan’s place if “The Heat” can’t go. It’ll be interesting to see who weighs-in later today.
This would be Parisyan’s second last-minute removal in consecutive fights as he couldn’t go for UFC 88 either because of a back injury.
