3,000 on Burkman. I like the odds and I think Karo is slipping a bit. He's trading one for the other. Explination: I watched a couple of old fights of his. He looked a lot trimmer and he was a lot more explosive but he didn't have the precision he does now. When I watched a couple of his newest fights he doesn't look as trim and he isn't as explosive as he used to be. That being said he seems to be more percise and has a better stand up game. I think his biggest problem while standing is his distance and foot work. He tends to over commit on most of his strikes.Yes I know he's only using this to get to the clinch but it's still sloppy. He'd do better to sink in his stance and throw jabs while inching himself closer. This will a.) help him gain distance without over commiting and b.) help him gain distance without his opponent really picking up on it. This will also help him conserve energy for an explosive clinch/takedown.
If he hasn't changed/add this to his game (which I feel he hasn't yet) he will lose to Josh or eek out a decision.
