Karo Parisyan Scratched from UFC 88

Kevin CurranSenior Analyst ISeptember 6, 2008

The Heat will not be in attendance at UFC 88 due to a back injury. According to training partner Randy Couture it was a "put out back." This apparently happened during training, and since the fight is so close he could not recover in time.

This will be a big blow to the UFC 88 card, but as the cards keep raking in money this one shouldn't be any different.

Good luck to Karo. Speaking for all of us in the Bleacherreport.com community, we wish you a speedy recovery.
