In a series of tweets he posted today in response to the news today that his upcoming UFC 143 opponent Carlos Condit would be stepping in for an injured Georges St-Pierre against Nick Diaz on the card, Josh Koscheck proved he hasn’t lost his place as one of the UFC’s greatest heels.
The always outspoken American Kickboxing Academy fighter directed his first message on the subject at Condit, inferring that “The Natural Born Killer” dodged a bullet by not having to face him and, “get [his] ass beat.”
His second tweet was much more optimistic, as he predicted that he’ll likely take on the winner of the bout since GSP will be on the shelf for an estimated 10 months.
Interestingly, though, Kos, whose sole win at 170 since losing to GSP a year ago at UFC 124 came against an aging veteran in Matt Hughes, really won’t be proving to anyone that he deserves a title bout if he gets the fight he’s asking for.
