21 Humans Who Make Being Human Look Really, Really Hard

Here We Go; Josh Koscheck Says His Last Fight With GSP Would Have Gone Differently if He Hadn’t Cracked His Eye Socket


("Lucky punch is lucky.")

Instead of just accepting the fact that Georges St-Pierre used his mug as a focus mitt at UFC 124 in December, Josh Koscheck has decided to take the well-travelled path of excuse making over the high road of admitting he got his ass handed to him that night.

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie, Koscheck said that the first punch he took in the bout was the one that basically won St-Pierre the fight.

"Georges beat me fair and square that night. He was the better fighter, but I think that the first punch of the fight was when I broke my eye. So I thought that it was definitely bad luck on my behalf. That’s life. He threw the punch, and it was a good punch. I definitely think the fight would have been a lot different if that wasn’t the case."


How would the fight have been a lot different? If St-Pierre hadn’t thrown that punch, another one just like it likely would have connected at some point in the bout. He’s simply a superior striker and overall mixed martial artist and he’s proven that two times already. Unfortunately, everyone but Koscheck realizes this as the American Kickboxing Academy product says he wants another crack at St-Pierre some time down the road.

"I’ll continue to grind and build my way up to being the number one contender and put myself back in the position [for another title shot]. "Right now, that’s so far away for me. I still have five months of recovery." 

Somehow I see a drop to lightweight in JoKo’s future.

Kos did *partially* redeem himself from the sour grapes he demonstrated earlier in the interview by saying that St-Pierre should easily beat his sometimes AKA training partner Jake Shields if he utilizes a good strategy in the fight.

"I think it’s an easy fight for Georges if he plays a smart game plan. But Jake Shields is definitely a good fighter. He’s got some weapons. He’s got a good guillotine, and he’s vicious on top."

I'm so tired of this fucking clown.

While you are certainly not false in labeling me as delusional and an idiot, in this case, both of my posts were right on the money.

Fact - The best P4P fighter on the planet should be able to put away a one-eyed challenger over the course of 25 minutes, or at least come ridiculously close.

Fact - Two eyes are better than one during a fight.

....the injury was caused by the fight. it's not like he slipped, and fell eye first on to John Fitch's cock. Your arguement holds as much water as Cub Swanson telling Jose Aldo:

If you didn't knock my shit loose with a knee in the first 8 seconds of our fight, I would have dominated you the rest of it.

It's like Jan Finney telling Cyborg:

If they would have checked your husband's sodomy scars, I... actually, I got nothing on that one.

The point is youre wrong.

I would also like to point out that Koscheck said the FIGHT would have been different, not the OUTCOME.

I don't see why or how that's such a stupid statement. If anything, it's stupidly obvious. Fighters generally perform better when they can see outta both eyes. From the left, Koscheck looked normal. From the right, he looked like a Japanese schoolgirl. It's hard to fight like that. If you beg to differ, let's see you close one eye and fight someone, and then fight him again with both eyes open. I bet it would be a different fight the second time around.

Your first post proves that you are delusional. This second one proves you are an idiot.

Kyle:
Yes, I believe that you believe you could have won that fight . That's how people like you work! Your ego is so out of whack that it will do whatever it can to protect itself. And people with a messed up ego can do these mental gymnastics to convince themselves they're awesome, when really, they're just douchebags!

BTW do you like Fish Sticks?

Jesus Christ Cage Potato, here we go again with the GSP reach-arounds.

Here's a question. When The Spider murders your boyfriend, are you gonna find a different fighter to jerk off to, or are you gonna develop an interest in necrophilia?

Kinda sad how Koscheck fought roughly 23 minutes with one eye, yet GSP still couldn't come close to finishing him. One eye = no depth perception, can't see punches/kicks/knees/elbows coming from that side, etc. Stick a one-eyed challenger in there with any of the other champions (except maybe Frankie), and there's a 0% chance he makes it to the final bell.

Whatever he needs to tell himself.

It's a stupid argument, God knows what would have happened if that punch didn't land exactly as it did - he also might've been knocked out by pressing forward more. He's had two fights with gsp, what exactly has he shown in those fights that suggest the outcome would've been different?

Koschek = complete fuckwit, that is possibly one of the most retarded statements I've ever read, he is the complete package of asswipe, douchebag and cockbreath all rolled into one.

"I wouldn't have gotten fucked in the ass...if I had just started sucking his dick first"
Kos

Fuck u douchebag, I almost had a tiny bit of respect for u for taking that pounding, BUT, u dont man up and admit defeat and then u throw yer teammate under the bus

fuck off, ...idiot

^Ha. It probably was Danaher who came up with all the credible source material Georges was talking about.

i see a drop to male nurse in koscheck's future
RwilsonR- February 1, 2011 at 4:28 pm
^ Yeah, I'm not anti-whacking off, but it was just a strange comment from GSP. I wonder if his guru John Danaher encouraged that.

@imabigfan

Did you just totally rip off a retarded Jeff Foxworthy punchline and post in on here thinking you were going to impress and get some laughs and acceptance with that shit? Bless your retarded heart.


@Rwils

GSP is openly pro Masturbation, which is a first, for me anyways, hearing that from a pro athlete. I get what you mean by creepy, it's like "After I spend hours rolling around and getting all hot and sweaty with a bunch of dudes on the floor, I love go home have myself a good wank, just to tell myself I've done a good job. It's my way of giving myself a pat on the back, but instead of a pat, it's more like getting the ketchup out of a glass bottle." However, whoever asked Elvira and Kelly Osbourne's acid baby to do the interview should be murdered on the spot.

Lets take this argument a step back.

If Joko hadn't been such a douche to St. Pierre for no apparent reason other than he can't help it maybe Pierre wouldn't have broken his eye. Lets go further.

If Joko hadn't been such a shitty striker all his life maybe he could have blocked a punch. Shall we go further? Lets.

If Kos hadn't secretly enjoyed being raped in the bushes at his high school, maybe he wouldn't have taken such an interest in wrestling to begin with. This is a journey folks. Onward we must.

Maybe if he had a father around to teach him to fight, he wouldn't have been raped in the bushes. Or for that matter, maybe he wouldn't be such a douche in the first place.

And finally. If Canada hadn't emerged from the War of 1812 with a heightened sense of national pride, maybe GSP would never had existed in the first place.

If my dick wasn't so long, the tip wouldn't get wet every time I sit down to take a shit. No disrespect. Just sayin'.
Turd Furgeson- February 1, 2011 at 2:41 pm
I knew it! There's no way GSP can beat Kos without breaking his face at the beginning of the fight. P4P? Gimmie a break...

sorry admins, i felt wrong about my comment after i posted it. i'm tired.

the caption should read "SUPRISE BUTTSEKS"

cause it looks like he just took a jake shields thumb to his ass
RwilsonR- February 1, 2011 at 2:13 pm
Here's the real reason that GSP won. He has unlocked the health benefits of sex for a fighter. And not just sex with his 'partner' (whatever that's supposed to mean), but also lots and lots of sex with himself.

Listen to him talk about it, and feel as uncomfortable as I did:

If it was anyone else that said this I wouldn't think he was being a jerk because truth is... it may have been a different fight. Not different like Kos would win... but he probably would have at least TRIED to be more aggressive. I'm not saying GSP wouldn't have done that damage on the next 200 jabs I'm just saying a black eye probably wouldn't stop somebody from moving in but a broken one would.

Your comment made me lol. For real though.
imabigfan- February 1, 2011 at 1:53 pm
no offense translates in the south to "bless his heart": my favorite colloquialism. You can say anything about a person so long as it is preceded or followed by "bless his heart." Look, I'll demonstrate.

Kos is a vapid meathead whose best skills include repeating himself, denying obvious truths, starting hair trends that immediately go nowhere regardless of his dedication, repeating himself, and blocking strikes with his eyebrow. Bless his heart.

Now you try.
