Ryan Ford at MFC 26

Ryan Ford

Ryan Ford will look to build his fanbase on the east coast of Canada when he returns to action in London, Ontario on May 19 where he faces former UFC title contender Karo Parisyan on the MMA Live 1 card.

The bout was first mentioned by Ford via his Twitter account, but now sources have indicated to MMAWeekly.com that the fight is a ‘done deal’.

At 14-3, Ford has been one of the brightest prospects to come out of Canada in recent years, but has stumbled a couple of times in higher profile fights. Two losses to current Strikeforce lightweight Pat Healy, as well as a submission loss to current MFC champion Douglas Lima mark the only losses of his career.

Outside of those 3 fights, Ford has been fairly dominant throughout his career finishing 13 of his 14 fights inside the distance. He has long spoke about facing tougher competition, and he’ll hopefully find that test in May.

To call Karo Parisyan’s (19-6) career a rollercoaster lately would be the understatement of the year. A one time title contender in the UFC’s welterweight division, Parisyan has dealt with everything from suspensions from the Nevada State Athletic Commissions to being dropped by the UFC, to being welcomed back only to suffer a knockout in his first fight back.

Parisyan will look to get his career back on track when he faces a very hungry fighter in Ryan Ford in May.

The bout will be a part of the MMA Live 1 card taking place in London, Ontario under the new sanctioning for mixed martial arts in the province.
