As far as that fight goes, Dan Mirgliotta definitely screwed karo. Dan, the same ref that let ONE HUNDRED, (yes 100!!!) UNANSWERED crucifix punches and elbows go without stoppage in the kelly/obrien fight....wouldnt let karo take 5 punches while karo is covered and kicking...dan is a crooked ref and its stuff like this that makes betting on mma impossible......the same ref/card where dan turns falcao's illegal RNC into a camel clutch 5 seconds after the round, then tells harris to fight...
Wouldnt say he screwed Karo over...if a fighter gets dropped by a 1-2 combo soo soft enough that it wouldnt move a punching bag, yet drops a guy like Karo, then something is physically wrong with Karo
While I agree the fight was stopped a little prematurely, Karo wasnt defending himself at all...his hands were on the mat, and not covering his face...if anything he woulda ate a few more shots and then it would be justifiably stopped...pretty much the same outcome as the Alves fight
As for the Kelly/O'Brien fight...O'Brien was moving around his body to avoid the punches and did cover up his face to avoid a good portion of the punches....and those punches were not vicious at all....nothing at all compared to the Jones/Vladimir fight
