Really hope he gets the help he needs.

I have been in the same boat as Karo for a long time. I have 5 Herniated disks in my spine and have been on pain meds for a long time. They are not easy to stop using. You get addicted both mentally and physically. Even if you wnat to stop taking them, your body will not let you.

If he really needs to take as much medication as they have reported, there is no way he should be fighting.

Keep your head up Karo!

Looking forward to seeing you compete again soon!

Addiction sucks.

unfortunately he's high in that video. Check out his eyes, they are very droopey and almost close a few times. Its that classic heroin look where someone is nodding off.

maybe he isn't? I just watched him again.

Never needed the meds til the day of the fight-for some reason I have trouble believing that.  Also could have sworn I read he only had scripts for 2 of the 3 opiates he popped hot for. 

 Was never a huge fan, but I feel bad for him an hope he gets clean.



And yes, IMO a 32K fine is ridiculous for an MMA fighter.

Karo... you are too proud.

You are clearly addicted to drugs and need intensive rehabilitation and therapy.

YOU ARE NOT BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF.

You need to accept that YOU CANT CONTROL THIS... and get the help you need.

You could be one of the greatest fighters in the WW division... even have the potential to be a champion (YES YOU ARE THAT TALENTED)... but you need to clean up your life first and then work on your fighting game with Greg Jackson.

You have a choice now... your story could either go in the direction of another really talented guy like Drew Fickett and fall apart... or you could turn the page and be one of the best.

Dana and the UFC are forgiving people... but they are not going to budge an inch until you take steps to fix yourself first.

Most of your "supporters and friends" are enablers... they don't have the guts to tell you what you need to hear: THAT YOU ARE A DISASTER RIGHT NOW.

Seriously... be honest with yourself... be the guy your fans, friends and family want you to be.

YOU ARE AN ADDICT... YOU CAN'T CONTROL THIS ON YOUR OWN... GET THE HELP YOU NEED.

You are still NOT BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF. This video is BULLSHIT... You acknowledge some of your issues... but are not completely honest with yourself and continue to delude yourself.

You will never "climb that mountain" again until you get help first.

GET THE HELP YOU NEED ASAP.

Signed,

A Karo Fan

^^ this. Hope he can get some real help and straighten out his life.

Karo's fights are never boring, he is a very tough and entertaining fighter. It seems to me that he still has the excuse bug though, I hope he can shake that and come back. Good luck Karo.

Sounds like he's in about as bad of shape as Baroni. Hope he heals enough to enjoy life.

but he didnt say hi to arianny at the airport

Hope he gets better and then fights both Carlos Newton and then Frank Shamrock. Karo's fucking awesome.

Blue namer help please

I hope Karo conquers these demons and comes back stronger.

he did a 20man interview on josh grosses podcast 

CHINESEFOOD - I've been addicted to opiates 4 a while. I've been off for 4 weeks and I am a sweaty, aching, nervous mess STILL.


 That sucks dude. 

 That interview was sketchy
