Koscheck quickly drops GSP steroid accusations; BJ Penn denies he called Koscheck (updated)Posted on June 9, 2010, 01:58 PM by Daniel Cassidy
Despite making the comments only yesterday, Josh Koscheck has quickly regretted his words, as he today announced they were taken out of context.
In a short interview with www.mmafighting.com, Koscheck told them:
“Media stories on comments I made about rumors of GSP are in no way factual. I’m known for polarizing comments, and I got caught up in hyping TUF and our fight. I was wrong, and apologize to GSP for trying to invalidate his hard work and talent.”
“I’ve waited for this fight a long time, and can’t wait to face one of the best fighters in the world, and come out with the win.”
Koscheck it seems it likely to stay in the public light until his bout with GSP is settled, due to his own intentions of "getting under his skin". Koscheck also promised he would KO the champ.
Both are currently opposing coaches on the twelfth series of The Ultimate Fighter, which started filming on Monday. A Welterweight Championship bout between the two is expected to take place around December time. This series of TUF features a search for new Lightweight talent. The show's debut will air on September 16th.
Former UFC Lightweight and Welterweight Champion BJ "The Prodigy" Penn denied in his blog at BJPenn.com that he called Josh Koscheck to tell him about GSP using steroids. But despite his denial, Penn stated that "Koscheck probably read his mind about GSP", providing a heavy hint that he agrees with Koscheck's controversial comments. BJ Penn will try to win his belt back at UFC 118, when he faces Frankie Edgar at the UFC 112 rematch.
