Josh Koscheck: Still Pretty Much A Jerk

You know how some people have this magnetic quality to them that makes you want to like them, no matter what they might be saying or doing?  Guys like Jack Nicholson, or that Australian kid who threw the crazy party and refused to take off his sunglasses.  Even when they behave poorly, there’s still something about them that makes it impossible not to be on their side.  Josh Koscheck is the complete opposite of that, and he displays it perfectly in this video interview with Fight Magazine.  Here he talks ever so smugly about how Anthony Johnson doesn’t want to fight him, how he’d love to take 20% of his purse and then beat him up anyway, and how he fully intends to punish "Rumble" like the UFC wants him to.  It’s the high school bully act, and Koscheck fits into the role so easily it’s like he was born to do it.

As a contrast, Johnson couldn’t find anything bad to say about Koscheck at all.  In fact, he called Koscheck an "entertaining" fighter and said he was "really respectable as a human being."  He said those things before this video of Koscheck smirking into the camera was posted to the internet.  Hopefully someone shows it to him before the fight tomorrow night.  He should at least go into it with a clear idea of the level of jerkitude that he’s dealing with.

"Also, fuck the sycophantic idiot filming this bullshit and giggling at everything this moron says. If you're gonna cackle at everything, at least try not to shake the camera, douche!"

@mthomas, I'm glad I wasn't the only one friggin annoyed with that dumb twat! he was even more annoying than Koscheck fer christ's sake.

man he started off just a lil cocky then he just went crazy with it,i was goin for kos in this one but this changes things i hope rumble knocks him out

Mind games people. Mind games. After the fight -- no matter who wins -- Kos will hug Rumble, congratulate him on how good he performed and that will be that. It's typical of fighters to talk shit, and this douche bag just elevates it to new heights.

You know, I was almost at a turning point with Kos. I thought he was just going to start fighting more and talking less. Although sometimes, I try not to take his shit seriously, however, this interview made him look just like he did in TUF 1. Where's his fuckface partner, Bobby Southworth? I half expected him to show up in the interview, but thankfully he was nowhere to be found. I really want to see Kos get fucked up now. I thought Hughes and Serra were the giant douchebags of this division. Apparently the mantle has been passed. I wonder if this guy has ever heard of the words humility and respect. But here's a few you might know Josh.......

Pube-headed, throw-a-way child!

To start with........That Australian kid.........everyone in Australia over the age of 18 with half a brain or more wants to smash his face in! That kids a dipshit!
I dont mind Josh......To start with he has the same name as me but he always provides very entertaining fights! He has good stand up and knows how to BANG! But he is also very good on the ground! I dont think he could beat GSP on the ground but i think he may be able to KO him standing. He is def a top 5 fighter in his div!

WOW! UFC fan actually posted something semi-OK...

I guess Kos caught amnesia from Paulo's fist cause like mtthomas said he is riding high and actually putting himself with Fitch. Godamn he has Black-Jew written all over his everything!

Balance your audio jergoffs.

I've been thinking about the Australian kids sunglasses since that Tito sunglasses post earlier...they're famous.
agentsmith- November 20, 2009 at 7:43 pm
I wonder if Kos still doesn't bother to study his opponents.

Koscheck's just up to his old tricks again. Funny you bring up Tito, Mthomas, because, Josh's attitude is reminiscent of Ortiz's in many ways. Josh's most noteworthy accomplishment in my eyes has been making me actually root for Chris Leben. In this fight he'd be smart to go to his rasslin since although AJ also has a similar background, Kos' pedigree is much more impressive. However, I see him content to trade with AJ, and getting ko'd sometime in rnd 2 as a result.

Prediction: when Kupcake wakes up from dreamland after Rumble knocks him the fuck out, he will jump up run to the back and throw a douchebag tantrum........just like his last KO. KOS you are bitch!
You wanna be the guy who has the most fights, you wanna fight 12 times a year, blah blah blah sounds like to me you wanna be the blowjob buddy of Phil Baroni.
mthomas- November 20, 2009 at 5:23 pm
between Kos and Ortiz, it's g0nna be a bleach-bottle blond extravaganza tomorrow night!
TacoMafia- November 20, 2009 at 5:07 pm
i cant believe rumble made weight.....gonna be a good fight....maybe he can get that KO of the night this time...
mthomas- November 20, 2009 at 4:59 pm
Also if you watch it from 2:14--2:25, I love how he makes it sound like him and Fitch are WAAY tougher than Swick. Apparently it's a cold, cold world @ AKA. Lose a fight and lose favour in the gym. You don't wanna see how they're gonna freeze out Velasquez when he loses his first fight...
mthomas- November 20, 2009 at 4:53 pm
To paraphrase the eminent sage known as "WaR MaCHiNe", FUCK A JOSH KOSCHECK!!

Also, fuck the sycophantic idiot filming this bullshit and giggling at everything this moron says. If you're gonna cackle at everything, at least try not to shake the camera, douche!

@RearNakedPoke and punchguyintheface: 2 of the best names on this site, BTW. Although I am gonna go with Kosh on this one. His striking has improved enough that he should be able to stand long enough to put Johnson on the ground where he needs to go to win this fight. I agree a slugfest is a poor choice for him. Kosh also just got his brown belt from David Camarillo so combine that with his wrestling skills and I don't think Johnson-who is a good wrestler- is gonna get the "W".
tribal- November 20, 2009 at 4:38 pm
I'm going with the bad guy here and saying that Kos smashes "rumble".

Both these guys are smug as fuck. Didn't rumble once comment on how lucky the crowd was to witness one of his fights?
punchguyinface- November 20, 2009 at 4:22 pm
Hopefully Rumble knocks that smug right off his face
RearNakedPoke- November 20, 2009 at 4:22 pm
man i hope Johnson knocks him out! i use to like Josh but he is such a D-BAG now
