Countdown to UFC 124 Videos

(Video courtesy BREAK/

If you missed the Countdown to UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck show on Monday, we got you covered.

One of the most intriguing parts of the St-Pierre-Koscheck segment of the show came courtesy of Kos’ ex-college wrestling coach who said that the American Kickboxing Academy-trained fighter’s assholish persona is not an act. According to the coach, Koscheck who was not well-liked by his college teammates once nearly came to blows with a fellow wrestler in the change rooms and was known as a bit of a loner. He said that he didn’t bat an eye at the way his former charge was portrayed on The Ultimate Fighter, because he remembers him being a bit of a dick.

We’ll have more on Koscheck’s abrasive personality from his AKA teammate, Phil Baroni on tomorrow’s UFC 124 edition of The Bum Rush

It’s also worth noting from the countdown show that Koscheck, who was involved with Bobby Southworth in taunting that "fatherless bastard" Chris Leben on TUF 1 was raised very modestly by a single mother and seems very bitter as a result. Maybe Josh just needs a good hug to make him stop being such a prick. Too bad he says he’ll never fight Jon Fitch.

Check out the rest of the countdown videos after the jump.

^^ Or... "Kos we can!"

Wait, I don't want him to win. But I didn't want Obama to win, either. Fucking catchy phrases and easily influenced people!

In this progressively yuppie douche-bag culture, a 'mulatto' sounds like somthing you order at Starbucks. It sounds really weired hearing Kos refer to himself as such.

But maybe he can use some of that Obama mulatto magic to pull this one off.

"Yes We Kos!"....I guess.

Did no one else see the boom at 18:32 of the first video? Koscheck's budget got spent on daddy therapy...

Howard's chipped tooth and the way he talks bothers me.

I don't know who i want to win this.

@ Sudos & Kingmade - I gotta go with Sudos on this one. Kos' frame is perfectly suited for WW. If he wanted to bulk up and cut a little more weight, he probably could. But he couldn't make LW. And the only person who has dwarfed him has been Thiago Alves, and he dwarfs everybody but Jon Fitch and Anthony Johnson. GSP and Kos are the same size. And don't forget that the only reason Kos couldn't take Alves down was because he was rocked hard in the first 30 seconds of tht fight, and looked concussed for the following 14:30, yet he still put up a decent show of it. And he took that Alves fight on less than two weeks notice, not long after he had a previous fight.

Kos is a lot of things, but not good enough for the WW division is not among them. If the criteria for not being good enough for the WW division is judged on losing to GSP, well, then there won't be anybody left at WW.

Now if you wanna look at two people who should consider a weight class jump, look at Kos' teammates. Fitch is huge for 170, and Swick looks emaciated at that weight.

Him being a prick don't mean shit cause he is going to be a prick without a belt.
He might as well get use to it.
I think a good beating might temper his prickisms down for awhile but josh will be back to his old self beating up 2nd stringers and newbs.
He wants to fight 12 times a year, maybe he will get his chance, and as he gets older every new fighter will get to wipe their feet on his career as they work their way to the top.
After this saturday he wont ever be a top contender without fighting fitch. He will be like GSP said, a memory of the past.
Sudos KFC- December 9, 2010 at 5:05 pm
^jesus thats the first thing everyone suggests, many times like now it's absolutely with no prior thought or reasoning. He is 6-2 fighting for the belt and suddenly needs to drop a weight class? He just housed two very big ww's in johnson and daley.

Look at his frame. Do you think taking another 15 pounds off will make him better?
KINGMADE- December 9, 2010 at 4:00 pm
Wonder if Kos ever thought about dropping a weight class. I think he would be beast.
GSP for Prime Minister- December 9, 2010 at 3:54 pm
bullshit he wouldnt fight fitch.. throw enough money at them and they'd fight each other GUARANTEED.. cmon now..
Wyatt- December 9, 2010 at 3:51 pm
So, he's just a poor sport and a dick by nature? Awesome, that makes everything okay...oh wait, no it doesn't.
RwilsonR- December 9, 2010 at 2:58 pm
Hahaha! Kos is a fatherless bastard, too! Now all I need is to discover that Kos' undergraduate degree was in nursing. That would just be too good!
Morningwood- December 9, 2010 at 2:37 pm
And hey if fighters were all well adjusted, mentally healthy people they'd be called... well I don't know what they'd be called but they wouldn't be fighters.

It's one thing to be pissed you didn't have a father. but, it's another to be Jens Pulver who said many times his father beat the living shit out of him. I think, I'd prefer the no father life. And it's no surprise to learn that Kos has been practicing to be the perfect asshole for more then the past 5 years...
