I actually enjoyed this. Granted, Karo did not look all that good, but there was some cool shit, like the Karo throw and the switch Kim pulled.

1st: 10-9 Kim.
2nd: 10-9 Karo.
3rd: 10-10 even.

I have no idea how Karo gets this decision.

Kim should've won the third or at the very least get a draw.

I seem to be in the minority. I thought Kim won the third round. I actually turned to my friend at the bar and said "Kim won a split, but Karo will get the decision." Judging again based on fan reputation than the actual fight.

Atleast you weren't high fiving people thinking Kim won, then for Buffer to say Karo took it.

I love both guys, and I wasn't rooting for anyone over the other, but come on. Kim molested him like a helpless child for a good part of the fight. Terrible judging.

The last round was relatively close, but I definitely thought Stun Gun won.

Was telling my friend that Parisyan was going to be pissed when Kim "likely" gets his hand raised, since Karo looked like he was already starting to celebrate.

round 1 was the only round where there was a decisive winner....

the current scoring system definitely has flaws

The kid's got a ton of ability, but without proper conditioning and at least some semblance of a fight strategy, it's for naught.

I was high on Kim's abilities after watching him utterly destroy Jason Tan in his debut. Then, I thought he could surely tweak his performance after a controversial split decision victory over Matt Brown: get more cardio, pace yourself, and mix up your striking and submission attempts so the offensive attack isn't quite so predictable.

Here's a clue:
When you listen to GSP break down his own performance and the strategy he utilized against Penn, it's absolutely brilliant. Kim's last two fights by comparison, are like a broken record: jump on my opponent's back over and over again (when he's completely fresh), then leave it up to the judges while staggering around gassed for the next ten minutes.

Unless this kid can find a challenging training camp that can help him raise his game to the next level, Kim is in danger of getting stuck in the middle of the PPV card for the foreseeable future.

I think round 2 was very close with the slight edge to Karo, but by the rules as they have usually gone Kim had more takedowns in the 3rd and that was the only real action to speak of. I think Kim should have won, i would be ok with a draw but i just don't see where or how the judges thought Karo won the fight.

It's beyond me how Karo got that decision. He looked aweful, and gave away a ton of position.

Kim won that fight imo.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.
