New Josh Koscheck interview.
On his training and style...
"I’ve pretty much been working my butt off to get my game to where it needed to be to be successful in this sport. I think my last knockout was just a testament of my hard work paying off."
"All of the fans want to see knockouts. It’s like when I was wrestling, they called me boring. Now that I’m a complete fighter, they want me to get back to my wrestling. I think we need to make up our minds in what we want to see. Do they want me to take people down and lay on them or do they want me standing up and knocking people out, you know? I think I’ve changed my game up a little and gotten away from my wrestling a little, but as far as my wrestling goes, if I need it, I’m going to pull it back out for sure."
On his upcoming fight against Paulo Thiago...
"I’m going to be aggressive, I’m coming forward and I’m coming to fight! That’s for sure! It’s going to be his first fight in the UFC and he’s probably been watching me fight for the last 5 years on TV so he’s probably going to be a little star struck from fighting in the UFC and I’m going to use that to my advantage. I’m coming forward and I’m going to try and take his head off."
"I’m not going to let this kid come in here and ruin the party. I got places I want to go and it just so happens to start in London, England on February 21st and Paulo Thiago is just a stop. I just have to make this stop and then get right back on my journey."
On a possible future fight with Parisyan...
"I like to have people talk about me. It creates value and you know that people care if they’re talking about you. To be honest with you dude, I’m in the gym. I live in the gym. I do my job and that’s training, putting on a show and working my ass off. I don’t listen to what people say. I don’t get on the internet. I don’t read any of that stuff so I don’t really listen to what people say."
