UFC 71 Quick Quote: Parisyan won't train for Burkman

UFC 71 Karo Parisyan vs Josh Burkman

"I don't train for fights. I train for three or four weeks to cut my weight and fight. I fight guys based on talent. I don't fight guys to get in shape and get ready for a fight, which is pathetic for a lot of welterweight fighters. It's not about the coaching. We know what we're supposed to do. It's always good to have a coach to get inside your head, but it's not that big of a difference at all, because if you're a professional fighter, you're a professional fighter. I don't know if that's a good thing, but I try to make the best of it."

-- UFC welterweight contender Karo Parisyan tells that he only trains to cut weight -- not for specific fighters. "The Heat" is set to face one-time training partner Josh Burkman-- who he thinks is "unimpressive" and "good in everything and great in nothing" -- at UFC 71 on May 26.
