"I’m doing what I can to prepare for him, but it’s hard to prepare for somebody like Karo because there are very few people in the world that are as good at Judo without the gi on as he is. So it’s really hard to find somebody to prepare for that, but, you know, I’m going into this fight kind of with the same mentality that I went into the Koscheck and Burkman fight with. And that is, I’m probably not going to stop every single takedown attempt, but I am comfortable off my back and I’m working a lot off my back and a lot on my striking, because it’s not a guarantee that I am going to be able to stop the takedown. So if he takes me down I’m not going to be as worried about it because I’ve prepared for that."

Being prepared to defend of your back is nice for not getting beat up, but it's not going to win a fight.. And if I remember right a loss is a loss whether it's a KO or decision.

Karo for the win. :)

except that if you get a submission off your back... you win. I'm picking Karo too but I just wanted to make that clear

I'm going with Karo to grind out a decision. He knows enough to avoid submissions (never been submitted) so I'm banking on that getting him through the night.
