The Kizer story seems to fit w/ Dana's story.

Karo has lost a lot of face with his past couple of mishaps. This will bury him.

I like watching Karo fight, but this doesnt set the UFC back in the least bit. People arent buying pay per views to watch Karo fight, he isnt exactly a big name. The only person that is hurting from this is Karo, he just went from being on the main card of a UFC pay per view to having a huge question mark attached to his name when he tries to find another contract somewhere else.

Should have bumped the Caol Uno fight to the main card as opposed to Paulo Thiago. I've been hearing good things about his opponent, and a game Uno can be a very entertaining fighter. Ah, well. Tough break for Karo, but there's only so many times you can play games before promoters say no more. I've never minded Karo all that much, but to say the WW division, and indeed the UFC will miss him is a bit of an overstatement.

This would have been a nice fight to see, however IMO it wasn't one of the fights I was excited about.

Wiki changed the entry which is too bad because I would have loved to read the original input.

As far as the questions as to why, I think it has been well explained, he is an addict and addicts lie. As far as doctors not prescribing 3 kinds of pain killers, most do not, its simply unethical. If someone were to go to three different doctors however, they could have three different presciptions, which is med seeking, a common behavior of addicts. I personally don't believe anything that Karo had to say about his pulling out, his first instinct to not dealing with the real issue is to lie.

Of course Dana is pissed, rightfully so. I just hope that after the initial shock he comes to understand that Karo is suffering from a disease and as unfortunate as some of his actions have been in the last year, in a lot of ways he can't help himself. If Karo fights again in another promotion he better do extremely well if there would even be a chance to see him in the octagon again.

Aren't you jumping a few steps here. "Dude... liek bra... just because Keith Kizer says its not because of money it must be because of his addiction to pain killers!"

We'll just all assume you haven't seen the thread where Karo admits it's because of his addiction...

Surely the UFC would have a stand by fighter considering Karo's past history....
