Koscheck was no doubt involved with AKA’s highly publicized likeness right scene, but he’s done a lot more to outrage White as well.
While he’s seen better times in his career after five straight losses resulted in the UFC not re-signing him following a submission loss to Erick Silva, Koscheck has kept his criticism of White at the forefront of his media appearances.
The former title challenger and current Bellator fighter took to the airwaves to blast White by calling him the Fertitta brothers’ “errand bitch” in an interview with Bleacher Report last year:
“This is just my opinion, but I think Dana is just the front boy for the Fertittas,” said Koscheck. “He’s their little errand b—h. They’re losing fans every day because of the things he does. The UFC has done a great job. They built this sport. They put a lot of dollars in, and they took a lot of risk. I can respect the fact that he works his ass off. But there are other things that I can’t respect.”
Like his teammate Fitch, Koscheck has also continued to criticize UFC fighter pay, namely their controversial sponsorship deal with Reebok, and indeed that animosity has lead to heated altercations with White. The exec confirmed that things even got physical on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd:
“Josh Koscheck and I had a really good one a couple weeks ago. When you’re the boss of 600 ultimate fighters, you know. Guys have threatened to get physical many times, but, you know, we work it out.”
Given that “Kos” is out of the UFC and unlikely to ever return, in this case, they didn’t really work it out.
