Kos interview with UFCMania.com
(ufcmania.com)
Josh Koscheck is one of the most polarizing fighters on the UFC roster. The former contestant on season one of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) has transitioned from being an insanely decorated collegiate wrestler at Edinboro University to a mixed martial arts star in less than three years. Along the way he’s made a few friends and enemies — inside and outside the Octagon. Love him or hate him, Koscheck is now knocking on the door for a shot at the welterweight crown in the very near future. Standing in his way, however, is the former 170-pound champion, Georges St. Pierre, this Saturday, August 25, at UFC 74: “Respect.” IMHO I think Kos is far to arrogant. Sorry Kos fans but he beat diego with a staph infection not Fedor.
