I loved Karo's song about Judo at the end of his fight. He has now explained it.
I knew I recognised it from somewhere.

He has gone even higher in my estimation.
A great fighter to watch, with superb throws.... and quite funny with it!
Respect.

Oddly enough, I've just finished watching Borat on dvd! Still, Karo was excellent in that fight, one of the better matches of the night imo!

Funny film.
When the rodeo rider falls down during the kazhakstan song you can just see Karo leg sweeping it!

Karo has totally rocked in the fights I've seen him in. Only 24 as well (although he looks older than the natural!).

A big future methinks.....if only he had more stoppage power....

Indeed, his striking has gotten miles and miles better, and I was reminded of this when I watched my dvd of UFC 51 where he fought Chris Lytle. If he can get some real stopping power behind his punches he would be even better.

What the hell is a rodeo rider? You must not have any cowboys in your area.

Not many in the leafy suburbs of England, no!
The rider at the rodeo? better? - she was parading, waving a flag.
Certainly not a proper cowboy (as i've seen in films!).


Just in case you've not seen it:

Karo is a great fighter and an advert for judo as a legitimate starting point for future MMA involvment. I have said it before I think he is at least No 3 ranked guy in his weight devision, In fact I think he sould have gotten a shot at the title before Sera, having beaten him previously. But the whole involvment in the TUF seems to make you a more tradable commodity and MMA is big buisness now,so what can you do. IMO he should definatly get a shot in the next 18 months though.

He could well be a contender for the title. There is so much good competition in that division now!

Last night he became my favorite welter weight fighter when I rewatched the battle between him and burkman. I love the way he just keeps coming. He's got miles of heart and Judo is just so sick to watch.

Karo is definitely the stuff, I can't wait to see him get a title shot to motivate him to work at the maximum of his abilities and improve even more. If his striking form improves so he can put more on his punches he will definitely be the most dangerous fighter at WW in the UFC, and a favorite to take the title.

I wonder if they will put him up against BJ any time soon.

karo has long been my favorite WW and i really hope he gets his title shot soon, win or lose the guy is exactly what you want to see in a fighter, exciting and always pressing the action. not to mention there is always the chance of seeing a sick judo throw

i found that hilarious when rogan told him he was bad at singing but had a good fight... he had it perfectly planned out, and he may be funnier than jackson.

I'm not so sure that would be a good fight for him. Otherwise though, he is a great fighter.
