karo said he is going to start training for fights now. I think he comes in shape and dominates Yoshida with a tko.

To be honest i havent been that impressed with karo in his last few fights i used to love the man and for some reason he started to get really boring IMO, and Yoshida was extremely impressive against War Machine, i really think Yoshida will take this one prolly by rd. 3 submission.

Both have very good Judo, so I think they'll cancel each other out in that area. Karo though i'd give the edge in wrestling, which is what I think he'll use to win the fight, take him down and control him. Very close fight IMO, wouldnt be surprised a bit if Yoshida won, tempted to pick him, but I'll stick with Karo and wager on Yoshida.

I think Yoshida will win by unanimous decision.

Karo is gonna get ktfo'd in much the same way Alves put him away. Karo may have the edge in wrestling, but that alone is not going to be enough to keep Yoshida from brining the pain. I'm picking Yoshida with a KO, probably R2. I'm also taking the line on Yoshida, and making him the marquis of my parlay.

This one is a lock!

Striking
Yoshida > Karo

Submissions
Yoshida > Karo

Judo
Yoshida = Karo

Wrestling
Yoshida < Karo

I'll be choosing Yoshida via decision. Tough one to pick though for sure.

Yoshida is a finisher, better grappler, much better striker and way more athletic.

Even if Karo comes in shape he's still no finisher.

I give it to Yoshida via TKO.

fighters from asian descent are making their names known in the UFC. Dong Hyun-kim, Lyoto Machida and Akihiro Gono.

karo should win, but yoshida is tough, this one will be close but karo takes the ud with top control and ground and pound.
