Josh Koscheck next fight will be against Chris Wilson at UFC 98..think this is gonna be a easy match for Kos..Kos is probably gonna win like this "Kos throws a left jab,misses,follows with the right,connects,Wilson gets dropped,Kos jumps all over Wilson,Kos continues to GnP,throwin lefts and rights,Wilson can't intelligently defend himself,the ref stops it,Kos wins via TKO"..and this happens sometime in the 1st round...

im pretty sure the vast majority of mma fans thought his last fight was going to be easy as well....


there are no EASY fights in this sport.

does kos seem to be following the hughes trend? Great wrestling but getting way too overconfident in his striking

Definitely was not an easy fight for his more skilled training partner.

Chris Wilson is tough. He gave Jon Fitch fits, and Fitch was unable to finish him. Actually, I don't think he's ever been stopped by a punch or punches, even if he's beat up. I'll take Koscheck, although I think Wilson can stay in it for fifteen minutes.

Koscheck should wrestle this time out. It's the way to beat Wilson. (Keeping Paulo Thiago standing was a smart gameplan, considering Thiago's seemingly horrific standup and good jiu-jitsu. Most wrestlers would have used similar tactics.)

I don't know what the hell Kos is thinking. He doesn't even attempt takedowns anymore. That's his bread-and-butter and he should definitely mix it up alittle better, you know keep'em guessing. Paulo Thiago made a big name for himself last Saturday KOing Kos, and Kos better look at this as a wake-up call. Training his wrestling only about 20% isn't cutting it. His wrestling still requires training like anything else.

I think Kos will be more cautious this time and grind out a safe decision.

Kos will take it to the ground this time and pound out Wilson. It could go to a UD but i see KOS taking it either way.

think Kos is gonna come out blazin..since he felt that his fight with Paulo could of went on a lil longer..he's always been a flashy kind of person..and i think he's gonna try to bounce back with a fast and dominatin victory over WIlson..and i'm pretty sure it's gonna be by GnP...

I think we might in for a pretty boring fight, Wilson has a good defensive guard and Kos doesn't have much GnP..... but Kos would be stupid to stand with Wilson.

KOs by LnP UD, returning to his roots.

I think Kos is pissed after being caught like that and will take it all out against Wilson which will obviously will not be good for Chris. I think Kos just lays out a complete ass whooping. Out boxes him, out wrestles him. I think Kos beats the crap outta him for 3 rounds and wins a dominant decision.

I see Kos coming out throwing bombs after his last fight and getting the ko in the first.

I agree with those who think we'll see Koscheck playing a much safer game and ultimatley grind out a UD
