Ariel Helwani: You gave Karo another shot in the UFC; what did you think of his performance and will he get another shot?

Dana White: You know everybody was asking me why I brought him back after all the things that have happened. Karo Pasityan  is a guy who has given not only me but the fans a lot of great fights over the years. This kid went though some hard times. I helped him out and I helped him out and I helped him out. I said Karo this is it, I am going to give you one more shot. I let him in, and I think tonight he showed he can't perform here any more

AH: So you think hes done?

DFW: (softly) Yah.

Realistically, I dont know why DFW gave him another shot anyways. I'd like to see him in Bellator or Strikeforce. Maybe a Diaz rematch

Carl Weathers - He looked like someone who hasn't been in a gym for a very long time

Skinny arms, flabby gut, I know he never had an impressive physique, but he looked so much worse tonight, like his entire time off he didn't work out at all. 

I don't think he was ready at all for a fight. He either re-dedicates himself or goes back to the painkillers,  I hope he chooses right
Yup, he never had a workout warrior body, but his physique last night looked like someone who had never been in a gym in their life.

There's no reason to cut a guy who caught clipped in one fight. Is it seriously because he's not ripped? He only looked a little more doughy than usual. Phone Post

He looked awful.  Like he hadn't barely trained for the fight.  Get a second shot in the UFC and show up packing a monster spare tire and look painfully slow and sluggish against Dennis Hallman?  Buh-bye

He's going to fucking cut Karo, but he'll keep Tito who has a handful of years of shitty performances. WAKE UP. Karo NEEDED to get the cobwebs shook out of him. One more shot is in order.

wasnt he supposed to get cut because he kept backing out of fights at the last minute? this fight was a favor for him and Dana gave him a chance.Its not like he got cut just cause he lost

To be fair, he always carries around that spare tire. Even when he is in great shape.

 He's never ripped, but that was as bad as he ever looked physically and his performance matched how he looked.

Was sad to see him just sat on the floor screaming. If he does get cut, I hope the UFC provide help in keeping Karo healthy... Phone Post

It's not even remotely the same. Tito first and foremost was still a pretty big draw at the time. He was also fairly competitive in damn near all of his fights despite a shitload of injuries.

Karo backed out a of a bunch of fights at the last minute and has generally been a mess.

informer24 - Dude Dana that was one fight...allow the man to get his feet under him and his barrings back in the UFC, everything is constantly shifting in his life right now, let him get in the hang of things a little goddamn.

 The UFC is not a place for someone to "Let you get your feet under yourself"  You do that in smaller shows.

Exactly. If he's serious about a comeback he can go to a smaller show and start to build up some wins. Believe me if he starts to look like a champ UFC will come knocking.

Karo and Tito are apples and oranges. Tito loses, but at least he trains hard for his fights. Also, he's still considered a draw, while Karo's fight was on the unaired portion of the undercard. It only made the broadcast because he lost so quickly that they could fit it in between scheduled fights.

This is total conjecture, but Karo seems to me like a lost soul that needs to take real time to address the deep-seated reasons for his anxiety.

When people deal with depression and other personal demons, they often obsess over a particular heartbreak or on accomplishing a specific task that they believe will make them whole again. If Dana considers Karo a friend, he will stick to his guns and insist the UFC is no longer an option. That's the only way he'll be able to focus on himself.

catbath is correct. Karo is a liability.

In all his interviews he was saying that he's just grappling and sparring with friends to get ready. Made a joke about "If I lived close to Extreme Couture I'd be champion already." but he didn't want to move his family.

That's respectable but there are a shit ton of guys who are busting their asses and giving up a lot to train and improve.
