imo he should get a top welterweight, but just about all of them have big fights coming up. GSP vs. Fitch, Diego vs. Alves, Hughes vs. Serra, Karo vs. Yoshida. what do they do with him? i'd like to see him fight again soon but he may have to wait a while before he gets another big fight (unless he is already lined up to fight the winner of gsp vs. fitch, but dana said bj is).

i'd say give him Swick, but since they are training partners i dont know if that will happen.

other than that there arent many top quality opponents for him, maybe the Dong, or Marcus Davis could be his next opponent.

I thought I heard Swick moved on from AKA??? Anyways, I see Davis / Johnson as a more interesting fight...

What about Matt Serra?

What about Matt Serra?



he's got hughes coming up later this year, probably not until november or december, but i agree, kos vs. serra is a very interesting matchup.

This seems to be the popular choice. Kos will destroy either one of them IMO.

I think they will be careful with Johnson, and don't see him fighting Kos. An interesting twist would be him getting the winner of Sanchez vs Alves. If Alves wins, they could make that fight a title shot fight. They could do the same if Sanchez wins, plus Diego gets a chance to avenge a loss. With the possibility of BJ vs GSP coming closer, it could be a while before any other WW gets a title shot.

a 3rd fight with sanchez , winner fights alves for number 1 contender.

i think it's going to be Anthony Johnson. this would be a crazy fight in my opinion. both fighters are extremely explosive.

perhaps Gono? Did he get hurt or something or is the UFC not offering him any fights? Koscheck-Gono would be a very good fight.

sanchez and alves are already fighting for what can be reasonably assumed as the #1 contender spot
koscheck gets booed perpetually and the ufc matchmakers will continue to shuffle him around (not to mention his loss to gsp doesn't bode well if gsp plows though fitch) i give the guy credit for trying to distance himself from the lay and pray image people have of him but he's not there yet which is obvious by the crowd's reaction to him at the last event

Swick?



Yeeeaaaaaaaah! Feed Swick to him. I'm eager to see Swick lose because of how lame he is. Kos hasn't exactly always been my favorite fighter, but he's put on great fights lately and has been modest and humble about it.

He should fight the loser of either GSP-Fitch or Sanchez-Alves. He needs to fight top 5 guys or he'll turn into another Fitch getting a title shot beating guys that are mostly not in the top ten. The sad thing is, Koscheck has a better record than Sanchez and I find it funny that if Diego beats Alves he'll get a shot before Koscheck.

A fight with Karo might be appropriate.


I think Swick would be a horrible fight to watch. That has snooze written all over it.

Swick or Anthony Johnson. I hope its Johnson cause that would give him a good step up in the division if he won. If not him, Kos will prob just wait til there is another guy that should be caleed #1 contender (winner of Yosida/ Karo or maybe Fitch if he loses)

Why would Kos be fighting guys like Swick and Johnson? Kos is at the top of the heap right now and deserves top 5 fighters if not a title shot.

He also has shown interest in dropping to light weight to fight BJ which would be very interesting.

i cant say much for Johnson since he hasnt proven himself yet, but Mike Swick would be a perfect fight of Kos. Kos is a good fighter, but even after beating Lytle's ass the whole last fight he almost got himself KOed at the end. Swick has great hands and the ability to control the fight.. he hasnt lost since dropping to WW (even though both fights were boring). not to mention he beatdown David Loiseau + Joe Riggs and put on a close performance against Yushin Okami. id love to see Mike Swick against Josh Koscheck, and id say Swick could win.. Kos is not a top 5 WW, and on one of these fights soon its gonna be proven
