    I didn't notice that the short little uppercuts Hallman caught Karo with in the clinch wobbled him.

    Just before they are separated and at Dennis Hallman connects with the weakest 1-2, he hits Karo with 2 short uppercuts in the clinch and during the separation where Mirgliotta breaks them apart, Karo stumbles and wipes blood from his nose.

    Then it was like 5 seconds later and Karo was on the ground. And Superman jumps on his and connects with 4 solid shots to the face and ear/neck.

    Karo should have been trying to block the punches or trap/catch Hallman's wrist with his right hand when he was on the ground....and his left should have been on Superman's knee...and use his legs to separate and spin on his back or at least shift away from him. Karo instead decided to try the loose turtle technique.

    Before I heard Karo on InsideMMA I was happy he was coming back.

    I saw Impact FC...but I saw a mix of Impact FC 1 and 2 and it didn't have the Karo fight....so I don't know what he looked like against Ben Mortimer (5-4 on the Aussie MMA circuit) but I knew that Karo was the huge underdog in this fight. Superman has been on a tear.

    PS. Watch Dennis Hallman as Robin Phoenix -

    I guess I'm in the minority on this one because it looked like a good stoppage to me. He covered up, but did NOTHING to get out of that position. He was just taking the punches and Hallman was serving them up pretty hard and fast as someone else already mentioned. There was no kicking or attempted leg submission, he turtled up and paid the price for not trying to defend himself better. I've never been a fan of his holier than thou attitude, and after seeing how unprepared he was last night after being given another shot only made happier that he lost.

    On a more sincere note he won't be in top form again until he figures out all his health issues he's been having. Hopefully he can get his life together outside of fighting before he attempts to do it again.

He was doing absolutely nothing but letting Dennis hit him in the face.
    Touche. When you're right, you're right.

    I've always had respect for bringing judo throws and making them popular in no-gi and in mma ...having said that he's an incredible underachiever but his panic attacks are real. he had massive love handles (even though I've said for the longest that he should be at 155) part of the reason is high levels of cortisol from "stress" and all that...he's totally FUBAR methinks but that stoppage was definitely early...

    I don't blame UFC for cutting Karo. He looked fat and out of shape and from the start I knew he didn't look good at all. He used to be a great fighter but he can't hang with the best anymore and he didn't take this fight seriously. he has been given too many chances by the UFC and this was it, he was told he had one more shot and he didn't do anything with it.

    Karo can be a great fighter, he has tons of potential and we have seen what he can really do at his best, but for now he doesn't belong in the UFC, plain and simple.

    while i feel the punch that knocked him down didnt hurt him it only caught him off balance the hammer fists were coming on pretty hard and fast ref did the right thing, sorry karo im a big fan but you lost, an extra three of four seconds would have given the fight a more definitive end but it would have caused unnecessary damage, he needs to go back to the smaller shows he is young he can make a steady living of his name and pay for his surgery and support his extended family and gain back the respect of the mma community and come back a new man, i wish people would let go of the whole TUF5 thing it was between him and nate diaz, dana is doing the right thing karo needs to biuld himself backup the right way, i just wish he had kept his mouth shut about strikeforce he could have had a decent job there, karo needs to go to 155 or get a proper strength and conditioning coach to get solid around his core.

    I have always liked the armenian judo specialist but after his recent problems with backing out of fights last minute then he came into this fight terribly out of shape and it showed in the short time the fight was going for. He got cut hopefully this will give him the motivation he needs to string some wins together.
