UFC Welterweight Karo Parisyan, who was set to face Hector Lombard at UFC 78 before visa issues caused Lombard to pull out, doesn't seem to mind Ryo Chonan stepping in to replace Lombard. In fact, Karo might be looking more forward to it now.

Article

Definitely a bigger fight now based on just name recognition and also because Chonan is another top PRIDE fighter coming over to UFC.

Im pumped about this fight. Chonan has good stand up and is a very game opponent & Karo always fights at a high level. Should be an exciting fight. Plus, Ryo Chonan should be pretty big at 170. Cant wait!!! Go Chonan!!!

Karo isn't afraid to stand with anybody. This should be a good fight, and I always look forward to the judo throws from Karo. He always has at least one in each fight, sometimes a few. I think Karo comes out on top. He's a brawler.

I can not wait for this. It's good to see karo up against a big name. Did anyone see that sick scissor to heel hook he put on anderson silva? This should be a great fight.
