I think this would be a verys exciting fight. Both of these guys have tremendous heart and stamina. Looking at both of them i think Karo would win, but it will be a war. Kind of like when Karo fought sanchez.

I hate Koscheck, and I love Karo. UNFORTUNATELY I'll have to go with Koscheck by UD. If Koscheck utilized the clinch takedown more I'd go with Karo, but he likes to use singles and double legs, and I don't see Karo's judo having much in answer to a low double leg.

Hence, Koscheck lay and pray UD

I think this is accurate...as much as I love judo, it's a means to an end in MMA not and end in itself. Once they're on the ground, Kos has a slight advantage...and then...not much is gonna happen until (if) they get stood up.

Yep, Karo with the advantage up against the fence and in a clinch situation, but Koscheck unfortunately has a massive ground advantage. The only way I could see Karo winning is early in the rounds while they're standing, or with a good judo throw combined with a bit of GnP for a KO. I don't see Koscheck submitting to strikes, though, and I do see him able to reverse Karo on the ground to get dominant position.

I guess i dont see at all how Kos is similar to Burkman. I think that seeing Karo has had fairly little success against strong wrestler types he would not have a great chance with Kos. Im not saying he would not have any chance because that would be flat out ignorant but i honestly believe Kos would take it three round decision and i think he would win the stand up game as well.

Karo would toss Kos all over the octagon eventually rolling him into some form of submission.

i have a new found respect for kos after the gsp fight. im not a huge fan of either fighter but i definately see kos walking away with the decision on this one. i wouldnt be too surprised to see kos finish the fight though.

I can see this turning out to be GSP vs. Parisyan fight. Josh is able to control Karo on top and avoid the submissions to get a decision win. Although I love Karo, the guy has always flopped when he has faced top competition (e.g. Sherk, GSP, Sanchez).



Completely agree...

Kos is my favorite Welterweight and I think he would have a war with GSP in the rematch. He DID NOT train wrestling for the Diego Snachez OR GSP fight because he felt his was way ahead of both and he learned the hard way. He's training primarily on his stand up but stil got dominated by GSP because GSP being the better wrestler took him off his game...

I think Kos learned his lesson and will start training atleast boxing for offense but then add alittle takedown defense and submission defense and I think he could be one of the best...

Just like MMA said I think Kos would take him down like GSP and just keep control. I think there stand up would be GREAT to see against one another since they are both improving but I feel KOs is better since he trains at AKA...I have KOS taking a UD because out outpointing and just controling Karo's every move...

This would be a fight i would like to see , I would love for it to go all 3 rounds and just beat the snot out of each other , Kos has limited skills and Karo thinks he is better than he is ...... SO i woud call it a draw
