Josh Koscheck hopes AKA burns to the ground, admits he is a total d***Posted on August 1, 2012, 01:40 PM by Mike Drahota
In one of the more candid MMA interviews we have seen recently, perennial heel and former AKA standout Josh Koscheck speaks to his friend and former teammate Jon Fitch about his departure from the gym. Koscheck feels slighted by AKA head trainer Javier Mendez, whom he feels only wanted to gain the fame and fortune associated with the fights Koscheck and Fitch were involved in with the UFC. It can be argued that Koscheck and AKA brought one another fame, but obviously the former disagrees. He expressed his strong feelings, thanks to FightHubTV.com:
"I can say truly, Fitch, I've been the same from day one. Total d***. From day one. I say what I feel, and if you don't like it, tough s***. I hope the gym burns to the ground (laughing). Is that bad? I hope no one's in it, well maybe one person. But if it burns down, I'm cool, we'll be good."
Some truly malicious statements, even for Koscheck. Some would argue that Koscheck's resume as a fighter does not warrant such an outspoken outburst. What do you think? Is the whole Koscheck vs. AKA fiasco becoming overblown? Is Josh Koscheck a fighter becoming known most for his fighting skills or his trash talking? Does MMA need characters of this sort, or could it do without them as it progresses into the mainstream?
