There was no 10-8 rounds i agree with that but there it was very clear Diego was the better fighter that night. Period.
Karo did have one ridiculous takedown when he flipped diego but not enough for a win
Agian, please quit judging fights on damage inflicted, GSP already proved that theory to be a falacy.
Karo won round 1, Karo won round 2, landed stiff jab after stiff jab, very impressive takedowns and some GNP. Round 2 was clearly Karo. Round 1 was close but I gave that to Karo as well, the short uppercut was huge, it created a mouse immediately under Karos eye and it was only 1 or 2 punches to the other eye that fucked that one up.
So yes if you judge on dmage Diego won but if you are judging by rounds Karo took both round 1 and round 2, Karo gassed in round 3 and that is all everyone seems to remember and not Karo's first 2 rounds.
