Parisyan off of UFC 88…did he panic?

The UFC is reporting that Karo “The Heat” Parisyan has been forced to scrap his UFC 88 bout with Japanese veteran Yoshiyuki Yoshida. It seems that Parisyan has suffered a last minute back injury while preparing for this bout and will be sidelined for an undisclosed amount of time.

Parisyan was at the UFC 88 pre-fight press conference on Thursday where he reported for the first time in quite a while he did not have to cut much weight for this fight and seemed to be feeling great. Therefore, the injury must have happened sometime between Thursday evening and early Friday morning.
