The Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Karo Parisyan a nine month suspension and fined $32,000 for testing positive for painkillers. His win over Dong Hyun Kim was also overturned to a "No Contest". I usually try to defend the fighters because it's gotta be insanely tough to get through training without dipping into some type of painkiller, but Karo was on three and one of them happened to be some serious stuff. Maybe he's developed an immunity to painkillers from years of use. Or maybe he's a horse. Either way, he needs to clean his act up.
