I don't see why they couldn't get someone to replace Karo. It is short notice but I'd bet if he called coaches at a couple top schools they'd have someone ready to fight immediately.
Because they have to get the Athletic Commisions to approve the fight. Which causes 2 problems:
1:) You have to get a through doctors check which takes a day or two.
2:) You're going to be hard pressed to get any AC to allow ANY UFC newcomer to face Karo. Now that Alves beat Hughes look at the record
Loss 1 and 2: Sean Sherk, Former UFC Lightweight Champion
Loss 3: Georges St. Pierre, Former UFC Champion, Current UFC Champion
Loss 4 and 5: Diego Sanchez and Thiago Alves, Both fighing each other more than likely for a title shot.
If you go to an AC and say:
I want to put a guy that has fought agianst: Sherk, GSP, Shonie, Diaz,, Serra, Thompson, Sanchez, Fickett, Burkman, Chonan. and Alves
and fight him against:
a guy that has never fought in the UFC and has beat one or two decent name tops
they will do this ------>
This does seriously blow
. I was really looking foward to this fight.
