Sources close to the fights confirmed the new bouts with MMAWeekly.com on Saturday.

    This dude (Karo) is full of potential, but he needs to fight at a lighter weight class. He’s too small for 170, but he insists on fighting the bigger guys & damaging his track record and even his chances of returning to the UFC. He also needs to get w/a good camp, take it seriously & drop the cockyness, then he can really be a champ. He walks around at like at 160 lbs, 5’8″http & has KO power.

    Damn! What is Karo doin still fighting! This dude has been done for years! After all the medical problems and having to back out of fights because of panic attacks he just can’t keep goin this to himself. I used to love watching him fight, but he lost it. His fight with Diaz was amazing, and he almost armbared gsp in their fight! This dude had the sickest judo when he was in the UFC but I think it’s time to hang it up, please!!!! Before u get seriously messed up!
