Josh Koscheck eyes interim title shot, hopes Georges St. Pierre never recoversPosted on February 2, 2012, 11:28 AM by Joey Santosus
Former Welterweight title challenger, Josh Koscheck, who will face Mike Pierce this Saturday night at UFC 143, discusses his opponent, as well as the current 170-pound title mix. Koscheck admits that there is no real animosity between himself and division champion Georges St. Pierre, but says that he hopes the Canadian "never comes back" from his ACL surgery.
"I'm interested in the outcome of the Condit-Diaz fight this Saturday night. Hopefully, Georges St. Pierre is out for more than 10-months, and they can make that interim title holder fight twice. I'm absolutely (rooting against GSP's recovery), hopefully he never comes back. Basically, ACL surgery can take a lot out of you. They say that you really, truly don't recover after those. I've had friends that have had those and they say they're not the same. So, hopefully it equals out the playing field and we can get another crack at Georges."
