Too close to call, either way. It's best not to leave it in the hands of the judges.

Kim definitely won round 3. They exchanged back and forth on the fence which was even, but the difference was that Kim took Karo down in the third and controlled the pace more.

It's a BS decision, but whatever.

You're just a cook...

You know what I hate about judges..
if you take this fight.. and watch Round 3 first.. then round 2.. then round 1.. I bet they would have all given the fight to Kim.

Karo won the last 2mins of round 3.. so they gave him round 3.. the judges are basically too stupid to remember what happened 2mins ago.. so anytime a around is close, they give it to the guy winning at the end.

If the UFC were to fix a fight, it wouldn't be this one. The potential audience in Korea is massive, the potential audience in Armania...not so massive. I felt a bit bad for Karo, with Joe and Goldie outing his panic attacks. Sure the more knowledgeable fans knew, but now mainstream fans know and if it were me I would try to keep it private unless I really needed an excuse to suck.

you dont need to rewatch it man.. it was a bad call..

Kim was beating him in all aspects apart from Karo's Judo throw..

maybe the fight was judged on who could do the better Judo throw as they both are from Judo backgrounds?

who knows..

Shogun is my homeboy.
