The smooth kicking Judo master himself, Karo Parisyan has somehow worked his way back into UFC president, Dana White’s good graces. After much turmoil and tribulation in Parisyans personal life effecting his career, the UFC released Parisyan, with White tweeting to the fans that Parisyan would never fight for the UFC again.  Here is what MMAFighting reported on his return:

The organization and offered a fight against Dennis Hallman at UFC 123 in Auburn Hills, Mich.Both Parisyan and Hallman have yet to sign the bout agreements, which have been issued to both fighters, but both fighters have verbally agreed to the welterweight bout.

Parisyan only competed once outside the organization since he was unceremoniously fired two days before UFC 106 last November when he pulled out of a fight against Dustin Hazelett. He submitted Ben Mortimer at Impact FC 1 in July.

Parisyan told MMA Fighting he “worked hard” over the past few months to get back in the good graces of White and the UFC, until he was finally offered another shot. He said he agreed to a new three-fight deal with the organization.
