Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Josh Koscheck Wants Olympic-Style Drug Testing for GSP Fight

(Kos and Georges enjoy their first staredown on the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ set. Props:

Now that TUF 12 has started taping, it’s time for Josh Koscheck to start building heat for his December fight against Georges St-Pierre — and he’s following the Floyd Mayweather playbook to the letter. In a story posted last night on MMA Junkie, Koscheck breathed new life into the steroid accusations first brought up by BJ Penn:

"From what I’ve heard from other fighters in other camps, yeah, [St-Pierre] has done steroids and HGH, possibly. I don’t know. This is just on hearsay information that I’ve gotten…B.J. Penn and his camp gave me a little phone call. They were saying, ‘Yeah, he’s on steroids. He’s this; he’s that.’ I said, ‘Yeah, there’s a possibility.’ The guy is pretty ripped all year round…I think Olympic-style testing would be great for our sport. At least you do it a couple times out from the fight. I think it will be a great idea."

Olympic-style drug testing involves taking blood, which is more effective than the standard urine tests used by athletic commissions because it allows for the identification of a greater range of P.E.D.’s, including human growth hormone. But Koscheck’s first attempt at getting one over on St-Pierre was unfruitful, as the champ shook off the accusations without getting too upset, and said he’s down with any testing they throw at him:

"I have no problem; any time he wants. I stand for that more than anybody else. I stand for this, and I just hope it’s going to happen soon. I know a lot of people cheat in this sport, and it’s unacceptable… Anything they want, I don’t care. I give my body to science…I’m not a coward. Anyone that uses steroids is a cheater. I don’t need to cheat to win. I am like I am, and I’m somebody that is not a coward. I’m not afraid of Josh Koscheck, and I don’t need to cheat to beat him. I’m going to beat him by the book and using the right way…
I just hope that it’s going to happen and happen soon. I want it to happen. I don’t know who uses [performance-enhancing drugs]. I have no idea, and I’m not going to say any names, but I want it to happen soon. What’s happening now, it’s going to be bad. It’s going to be like a certain other sport. I don’t want to say the name of the sport, but it’s not going to be the best fighter that wins the fight. Now, what makes a good fighter is a lot of genetics, the style, the skills, the heart. Now there is another factor that influences the fight: the team of doctors behind the fighter. This should not be an element that helps a fighter to win a fight. That’s something I am against. It’s not everybody that stands for that, and I don’t. I think everybody should be testing like the Olympic Games."

Could it be that GSP’s impressive physique — and the fact that he doesn’t blow up between fights like Anthony Johnson — is simply due to a commitment to fitness and nutrition? Wisely, Koscheck left the door open for another excuse later, if the steroid thing doesn’t pan out: 

"I plan on making Georges stand toe-to-toe with me. This isn’t going to be a wrestling match. I’m going to force him to stand-up with me because I believe he doesn’t have knockout power. We’ve just got to pray to God that he doesn’t grease up, and he gets off that juice so that we can equal things about it."

After reading this forum for years,... Kosh Jokecheck's latest verbal diarrhea has prompted me to sign up a profile so I can add to the litany of "hate mail" being directed at him.
My very first exposure to this creep was his appearance on TUF 1, and as we all remember he gave us a glimpse into his character on the show, dousing the mentally disturbed Chris Leben while he tried to sleep off an alcohol induced bender. The guy acted Junior High back then and not much has changed.
Now for something that truly is relevant and a foreshadowing of things to come:

On August 25, 2007, at UFC 74 Kosh Jokecheck was defeated by Georges St-Pierre at UFC 74 via unanimous decision. (30–27, 29–28, 29–28). St-Pierre's wrestling skills were displayed during the match by "out-wrestling Jokecheck", scoring take-downs, stopping Koscheck's take-down attempts and maintaining top position throughout most of the fight. There was speculation before the fight that Jokecheck would out-match St-Pierre on the ground due to his credentials, but St-Pierre was confident that he was a better wrestler and striker and was more well versed in submissions than Jokecheck.

Their next fight will be an even more decisive "Beat-down" for "The Mouth from the South".... I predict Kosh Jokecheck loses in the second by submission.

GSP is gonna break his foot of in his ass n i cant fuckin wait.

fuckin laffin at fragglecock fucksticks' attempts @ self promotion.

all american wrestler, community college graduate.

in short...fuck you

The real question here is: why hasn't Koscheck been punished for FAKING INJURIES AGAIN AND AGAIN?

He (and others like him) will kill the sport.
noizy- June 8, 2010 at 9:06 pm
Being a GSP fan, and a Kos hater I really appreciated reading how much everyone hates Kos.
knightrida- June 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Did GSP not win the stand up against BJ Penn and Alves? Sure he took em down but neither one of those top strikers came close to hurting to GSP on their feet.
Clyde- June 8, 2010 at 4:30 pm
Man, koscheck is a dick. I know I've said the whole "absence of proof..." bit, but do you think you could lay off the accusations until maybe there's a hint of proof that the GSP is cheating? I think Kos is the one of the last real chalengers for GSP and he should move up shortly after this.

But despite my dislike of Kos and his injury feigning shenanigans, I think he deserves this shot. And I always hope he gets what he deserves.

My prediction, GSP via TKO in the 3rd. Doctor's stoppage due to cut (severe anal bleeding).

Or what El Guapo says; Maz interprets repeated punches to Koscheck's face as tapping out and we have a new champ.
Dagnut- June 8, 2010 at 4:00 pm
I don't usually go for the violent comment and I don't particularly dislike any fighters but as far as taking advantage goes I think GSP should be given every advantage....In fact I'd be happy to see him walk in there with a machete and hack that annoying fcukers limbs off...I'm not some sick freak with a blood lust but the thought of Koscheck flapping about with no arms and legs makes me chuckle
Mr_Misanthropy- June 8, 2010 at 3:59 pm
Personally I'd be questioning Georgette's sexual orientation, what with those gay black and white calendars of himself that he loves to produce (it's Georges in a tuxedo, it's sweaty Georges leaning against the heavy bag, it's georges in his manties on a bed with a pile of stuffed animals).

I think that's why he doesn't finish fights- he's trying to log the maximum amount of sweaty man-grease mat time that he possibly can. Here's a statistic I'd like to see: how much time in each fight does he spend subjecting his opponents to the sweaty teabag? I've never seen any footage of him with a broad and I've never heard any rumors of him banging slutty ring girls. Totally gay.

Just some interesting numbers to go by... wrestlers vs. GSP.

GSP vs. Fitch, 5 Rd Decision

Knockdowns by strikes... GSP, 3. Fitch, 0.
Takedowns... GSP 5/7 (71%). Fitch 0/5 (0%).
Positional Advances... GSP 4/6. Fitch 0/0.
Sweeps/Reversals... GSP 1. Fitch 0.

While researching I realized this would just be easier.

Takedown Percentages

GSP 100% Koscheck 25%
GSP 83% Alves 0%
GSP 75% Sherk 0%
GSP 100% Trigg 0%.
GSP 100% Hughes 29% (1rst fight)
GSP 100% Hughes 0% (2nd fight)
GSP 100% Hughes 0% (3rd fight)

I know Alves wasn't primarily a wrestler, but he was supposedly bigger, stronger, younger than GSP, so I felt the percentages were noteworthy.

The only fighter to really have any success vs GSP regarding takedowns and takedown defense against him was Penn in their 1rst fight. The 2nd fight was similar in nature to those listed above.

I don't know how Koscheck plans on winning this fight. Save for a Serra-type fluke, he's f*ck*d.
Keyser Soze- June 8, 2010 at 2:44 pm
FIrst off... maybe it's a camera angle affecting the shot of GSP/Kos face to face, but GSP looks huge compared to Bob Ross.

I don't find "someone called from BJ's camp" all that believable either. If I were DW and GSP passed his drug tests (which I have NO doubt that he would), I'd drag Penn and Koscheck into my office and figure out who the f*ck is lying and what was actually said by who. There's a good chance this is all just bullshit from Koscheck, and if so... let him get his beatdown, then fire his ass. Same goes for Penn.

Both guys have a proven track record of being inconsistant, semi-professional at best, mediocre at welterweight. Suck it up princesses, you can't beat GSP. You haven't yet, and you never will.

Koscheck doesn't have a whole lot of drawing power, and I don't think PPV sales hinge on whether or not KockKnocker is part of the main event. Send his a$$ to Strikeforce to fight Nick Diaz repeatedly until they're both mental midgets. Don't worry, it won't take long.

When GSP wins the best option would be to have Dan Hardy and Kos go at it since they were talking s..t to each other anyway.
vengful1- June 8, 2010 at 1:42 pm
"B.J. Penn and his camp gave me a little phone call. They were saying, 'Yeah, he's on steroids. He's this; he's that."

Everyone keeps talking about steroids but no one has brought up the "this" and the "that". I think they need to start an investigation immediately.

I hope after GSP pisses and gives blood he makes kos piss blood.

And i think Mr_Misanthropy hit the nail on the head.
Daddy_Lupo- June 8, 2010 at 12:54 pm
The Best thing that could happen is Josh Cockcheck hurting himself while shooting a gay porno and to be force to pulls out the fight.

Then never get a title shot again.

Then gets a job with the World Wrestling Entertainment.

Mr_Misanthropy- June 8, 2010 at 12:23 pm
I think he's just getting warmed up. Chael Sonnen has set the precedent with "The New Way to Get Paid if You're a Mediocre Draw", the latest installment in his new series of self help manuals for people struggling to find some way to overcome the stigma of their repulsive personalities.
ReDx- June 8, 2010 at 12:12 pm
So Kos is going to keep it standing just like he said he was going to against Daley and Rumble, right? Somebody needs close the valve on his verbal diarrhea.
El Guapo- June 8, 2010 at 11:45 am
Kos by DQ.. GSP knocks him out with a barrage of clean strikes, Mazzagatti does what he does best. The End.

Or is it? When he wakes up, Fraggle tells the partisan St Pierre crowd to f'k off, a riot ensues and he says he's misunderstood. The End. Until the sequel, I mean.
Mr_Misanthropy- June 8, 2010 at 11:33 am
Fuck this weak ass "Olympic style drug testing" I want this one to be decided by Olympic style drug DOING. Take Arianny and Chandelier, have them strip naked in the middle of the Octagon, and lay out rails of 96% pure Peruvian flake from the tip of their beans to their neck lines. Whoever can blow over a gram in one line without their heart exploding gets a W, a shiny new car, and a shot at the Showcase Showdown. End of story.
dranokills- June 8, 2010 at 11:10 am
Josh nobody older than a 3 year old thinks you have a real chance, we all saw your last attempt at fighting GSP.
Oh things change, but whats changed is GSP got better you just got better at faking shit. Your beatdown will be similar but faster.
Talk all you want, paul daley DOUCHE'D you to where you are now, and because he was a bigger dumbass than you are you get to go coach on a show that doesn't matter, you will still get squashed just like FRITO would have with Chuck.
Hey maybe you can be just like Frito and have an injury to avoid the beatdown.
I feel sorry for any kid who has to be on your team...what will you train them in? wrestling or wrasslin' (the art of faking it)
danomite- June 8, 2010 at 11:00 am
I think everyone here is missing the real treat from this article. BJ Penn is still hurting from the asswhooping he received from GSP. I love it. GSP is in BJ's head without even trying. First, he gets the (undeserved) rematch that he begged for. He thought that this was going to cement his legacy as the greatest p4p fighter ever and pull a george costansza and quit on a high note if he won. Then he goes in there and gets dominated worse than anyone else has ever been dominated before in the octagon for 20 minutes before he basically tapped out from the abuse in between rounds after calling GSP a bitch for tapping to strikes of all things. Next came the desperate grasping for straws in the form of the greasing allegations, all so that he wouldn't have to admit to himself that he got destroyed by someone who was out of his league. He even has his mother come to the principal's office to give excuses as to why he sucked so bad. Then he goes and defends the lightweight title a couple times and starts fooling himself into believing that if he just defends the title one more time he can get another shot, but he gets beat by Frankie Edgar and now a YEAR AND A HALF LATER he is calling up GSP's opponents and telling them GSP takes steroids. This article made my day. The only way this could get any better is if he fights GSP one more time, gets destroyed, then they find him hanging in his hotel closet the next day Kung-Fu style.

Josh Koscheck wants Olympic style drug testing you say? well, here's a short list of other things Josh Koscheck wants: COCK.
KarmaAteMyCat- June 8, 2010 at 10:05 am
My Nation, I have a dream! That some day all my brothers and Sisters will sit down at the cage of brotherhood! TO WATCH THE COMPLETE destruction of Josh "Fraggle ROCk" Koscheck and that someday! We can see him cry like a little bitch again! HEY koshceck its Ironic you mention wrestling matchs! Didn't you avoid Pauls hands like that. HA! right. Im all about cpt. canada!
Bacon- June 8, 2010 at 9:37 am
I don't know about all this hooey but it makes me excited for TUF 12!
WithoutRemorse- June 8, 2010 at 9:32 am
@Deathb4tapout - What you should probably know is that GSP is based out of Tri-Star (i think that's what it is anyway) in Montreal. He often goes from camp to camp to hone his skills in a particular area. He's currently working (or was) with Freddy Roach to improve his boxing. However, you are correct sort of. he does go to Greg Jackson's camp from time to time, but i don't believe he did for his last title defense.

Cheers, GSP nuthugger!

ReX13- June 8, 2010 at 9:10 am
Hum Deez Nuts +1

Something just occurred to me: it's going to be high comedy when Koschek and GSP are picking teams. Guarantee that the LAST guy picked on GSP's team is going to be more stoked than the first guy taken by Fraggle.
BringtheRukus- June 8, 2010 at 9:10 am
Just keepin' it real.. I was going to say "and Paul Daley his mom in the stomach" but apparenty he sucker punches like a puss...
