Karo is out

Is anyone else buying this?

A last-minute back injury has forced welterweight contender Karo Parisyan to withdraw from his UFC 88 bout with Yoshiyuki Yoshida. Saturday’s UFC 88 card (pay-per-view 10pm ET / 7pm PT) will continue with nine bouts.

You always give fighters the benefit of the doubt, but with all that talk of Karo’s serious anxiety disorder over the past few weeks, am I being callous to suggest that we’re not getting the entire story here?
