If you were a fan of the TV show The Ultimate Fighter way back at season five, then you might remember the entertaining clash between contestant Nate Diaz and guest trainer Karo Parisyan.
If you didn't catch it, it basically consisted of Parisyan pestering Diaz until he had had enough and standing up to settle things the old-fashioned Stockton way. The fighters were separated, and Parisyan went outside to give his infamous "Do you know who I am?" speech.
Parisyan was never seen on the show again, and most assumed they both went on with their lives. But, of course, it was not, and months later Parisyan was on TAGG radio spouting off about the situation.
"Recently, I almost fought at another competition with them, at fights in the UFC, where guys held me back again," Parisyan stated. "Eventually, one day, something is going to happen because I can't handle that kid anymore."
Well, two years later, it would now be a possibility for these two to settle it in front of millions of viewers.
Nate Diaz has moved up to Parisyan's division—Diaz is now 2-0 at welterweight—and Parisyan has allegedly recovered from his anxiety attack-driven fallout with the UFC, and has been welcomed back.
This fight would depend on the performances in the fighters next appearances. Diaz is facing Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 125, and with a win there, he would be far past Parisyan's current place in the division.
Karo has a match against Dennis Hallman at UFC 123 that he would have to win to get a matchup with Diaz.
So if Diaz loses his next fight, and Parisyan wins his next, this matchup would make perfect sense.
There is too much video buildup for this fight to never happen. Not to mention, it would be a great fight.
