Hazelett showed a lot of skill almost submitting Kos with a triangle and standing with Kos as well.
Ok I agree and disagree with you on this comment.
Yea Hazelett has amazing skill for a very young guy and had some pretty good stand up but you fail to mention a plus about Koscheck in which Kos showed leaps and bounds of improvement.
Koscheck used great stand up the whole night and didn't go for that bombing overhand right only he threw kicks! And TKO'ed Hazelett from a Kick!!!
Thats an exciting thing for a Koscheck. I mean no ones going to say his stand up is comparable to a Marcus Davis but he hit very flush shots and recovered quite quick from being rocked with that head kick and knee. He also started to mesh his striking and wrestling together
. He set up his takedown perfectly and ran through Dustin with a vintage Koscheck take down.
Now in reference to him almost finishing Koscheck i must strongly emphatically disagree with you in the submission department. He almost scored the knock out but the triangle was not in tight and really had a very small chance of tapping Kos unless he attained Kos's arm and placed it across Kos's neck. So there i disagree it was a very loose triangle and many got worked up of what turned out to be nothing. Personally for me the guillotine was more dangerous but Kos defended it beautifully as his submission defense is very good.
Just my analaysis on the fight and Koscheck is now becoming the true all around threat that can threaten GSP....imo
