I could be looking too far into it, but when Dana says that you ‘[Expletive] the UFC’ by pulling out of the fight the day before weigh-ins, it looks like that may denote a lifetime ban. In fact, it did constitute a lifetime ban in the promotion, but in ZUFFA years, a lifetime is only ten months. Here’s what Dana White said back in November of 2009.
Ariel Helwani just broke the news that Dana White has accepted Karo Parisyan back in the UFC and he will be facing Dennis Hallman at UFC 123. If you had 10,000 years to predict what could happen today in the MMA world, Karo Parisyan coming back to the UFC would be at the 8,000 year mark. We followed Karo Parisyan all the way to Australia just to see this guy fight, now that he’s fighting on American soil, it will make it a little easier. Props to Karo on striking another deal with the UFC and for making the world aware that ‘his judo is the best in the world, all the other judos are done by little girls’. [Source]
