this will be one of GSPs toughest test yet. Koscheck has truely improved since their last fight. In my eyes they are the top 2 wrestlers in the ufc, both have good stand up. GSP is more well rounded but koscheck has a better chin.....cant wait for this fight
i agree but after your comment everybody will now say that kos got a glassjaw just cuz of the Paulo Thiago fight. BTW to me is really hard to say wich one is the best wrestler. Yes gsp out wrestled kos in thier first fight but that was cuz kos didnt even train for GSPs Wrestling it will be harder this time for gsp to take kos down. Cant wait for this fight seriously!
Face it....it's still gonna be a wrestling match....mostly likely be another boring grappling match....not like watching a Sanchez fight! or a Guida fight! that's for-sure......have you seen clips of GSP's training regiment for power!!??? GSP's in another level of power...I really don't think Josh can handle that power....the most I give Josh is a punchers chance!!
Does Koscheck out wrestle Matt Hughes? Debatable. I don't know that we could easily declare him a better wrestler then Matt and we know what GSP did to Hughes and his wrestling, in those last two fights. Two fights I would not mind seeing happen would be JK v Hughes and Jk v. Serra.
As to JK's improving skills - what does he think GSP has been doing, sitting around eating cheese burgers. The GSP that's going to be in the cage with him come fight night, is going to be a much bigger, stronger, faster, focused, more talented version of their previous encounter. GSP's boxing, for one, has dramatically improved and we haven't even seen it (yet) post Freddie Roach; how much better will he be with his hands and foot work, come December?
I see GSP outclassing this guy everywhere; stand-up, ground, up against the cage - everywhere. JK's only chance in this fight is to catch GSP with that loopy (all-be-it powerful) loopy "Serraesque" right; and that is his only chance. And notice, JK has said nothing about taking GSP to the ground and beating on him; it's nowhere near part of his game plane and for one reason - he knows he doesn't stand a chance on the ground with GSP.
Is he a tough test - more solid, then anything; Thiago Alves was a tough test; Hardy was a tough test (on his feet)...JK is a one trick pony, in this fight. That is all he is.
After this, here's a fight that I'd love to see - Koscheck v. Leben 2 "Payback Is A Bitch". Somehow, the UFC has to make this fight happen. I want to see Leben beat the crap out of him.
explain why Koschecks chin is better cause he took a Paul Daley sucker punch? G.S.P has never been knocked out in his fight against Serra he got hit behind the ear lost his legs and tapped out. in all his fights since then hes been too smart to get hit with any big shots but whos to say if he did he couldent take them
everybody is gsp "toughest test" give me a break.
Exactly... GSP is stronger, faster, and a better athlete. He is better than Kos EVERYWHERE!!!!!
the UFC says everybody is b/c it's their job to hype he figth but realistically who on these sights was giving Hardy any chance in that fight. In this case, even though I think GSP will win, Koscheck can really put him to the test.
hell yeah he is.
does koscheck thinks he's a world class striker, "i'm gonna force him to stand toe-to-toe",ur not anderson silva damn it,hahahaaha
Koscheck hates Tito?
I wonder why his dream match up is against Tito.
Kos does seem different in this interview.
Maybe because they both have blond hair?
Idc how many haters you have, you will always have fans.
I think i jut fell in love.
As far as his fans go???...Josh screwed himself over messing with Chris Leban on Ultimate Fighter. lol...He's tried fighting in his home town....I can't remember against who....but even the people in his home town cheered louder for the other guy!....he fought for the troops...but still, he never really seemed to grow a strong fan base......I think he needs to say sorry to Chris Leban. hahaha. Plus loose the blond hair already....dude...it ain't working.
Seriously that's where I started not liking Kos. He knew Leben had issues and still messed with him. That's low.
Yeah - I just don't see that happening.
His personality is different off camera? Makes no sense. GSP is the same on and off (from what we can tell), as is Randy, Chuck, Anderson, Vitor, Lyoto et. al. I'm beginning to think that Kos suffers from schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder.
His fight with GSP - for all of JK's talk about how his improvement and his wrestling...how he's going to force it to be a stand-up fight....I say this...I was hoping to see GSP stand with this fool and out box him, stay away from his one tool, that big loopy right, but now I'd like to GSP take him down and beat the crap out of him...not sub him, but beat the crap out of him; just to prove to JK that his improved wrestling doesn't mean crap if GSP wants to take him down.
I'm pissed that I have to wait until December to see GSP fight, however, I look forward to the beating he will give and the awesome coach he's going to be (to watch) on TUF, this season.
...fall in love with Koscheck - LOL!
koshcheck matured? i didnt notice.
Kos is a twat, Anthony Johnson would have beaten him only for the eye gouging.
