Karo Parisyan sat down with Bloody Elbow to talk about his career, pain killers, Chris Leben, pain killers, and … Ronda Rousey!
Karo Parisyan : Listen, Ronda grew up in front of us. When Ronda was a kid we used to yell at her and tell her to suck her lip back in and start doing the techniques. She trained with animals like us and that’s why she went and became a world champion in judo. Ronda is like my little sister man. I’ve known her for over 15 years. She’s doing great and she’s an animal. I put my money on her. When she fights Cyborg, I put my money on Ronda. Ronda would kill Cyborg. Ronda would tear a limb off. People have no idea how strong Ronda is and she doesn’t quit. She should expect, it’s unbelievable I could say so much stuff that she should expect, but this is the nastiest business in the world this mixed martial arts. There’s a lot of politics involved. It’s a soap opera. It’s who said what. At the end of the day it’s about the fight. If you can win and prove to the fans and yourself, you’re gonna make something of yourself and going to become who you want to become. She should expect losses. A cut. A broken hand. She should expect the physical department and the emotional department. I’ve been through all that stuff for 15 years and I told her that too. I trained with her a couple months ago. That being said I think Ronda’s gonna be great at mixed martial arts. She’s amazing.
