Cousins Karo Parisyan and Manny Gamburyan have confirmed that they will return to the octagon on the same card – UFC 87: Seek And Destroy.
“I will be fighting August 9 in Minnesota,” Parisyan told 15rounds. “There are a couple of names being thrown around, but there’s no opponent yet.”
Parisyan dropped his last fight against Thiago Alves in what many, including Parisyan himself, felt was a controversial referee stoppage at UFN 13 in Denver, Co.
Parisyan’s cousin Manny Gamburyan had no such trouble in his fight against Jeff Cox. Gamburyan quickly caught Cox in a guillotine choke, submitting him in under two minutes of the first round. Gamburyan can now look forward to a TUF 5 reunion with Rob Emerson.
“I am back in the Octagon in August against Rob Emerson,” said Gamburyan.

Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch
