    How about a rematch with Diego? Other then him I cant think of any top-tier WW that isnt booked in the next 3 months

    Boo… that was a fight I was really looking forward to. Hopefully they can find another top-tier fighter to face Fitch. Unless Karo is 100% locked into his rumored UFC 83 fight, I think they should have them go at it at 82 to determine the first #1 contender after GSP/Serra…

    Karo will not risk his already guaranteed title shot.. dont know what his problem is GSP will annhilate him anyways.. a true #1 contender wouldnt be afraid to fight anybody

    Karo needs to be a FIGHTER and step in to this competitive fight. Remember Rashad, Karo SAYS he’s been guaranteed a title shot… how confident are you in things Karo says?
