Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Koscheck Turns Up the Mental Warfare Ahead of UFC 124; Calls GSP a Boring, Mentally Weak Quitter With No Chin

("…and your breath smells like poutine and maple syrup.")

Sometimes it just seems like Josh Koscheck throws insults like darts at a dartboard hoping that one will hit its mark. 

In a recent interview with Fighters Only, the brash American Kickboxing Academy product lobbed another salvo at upcoming UFC 124 opponent, UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre.

When asked by editor John Joe O’Regan about whether or not GSP is guilty of playing it safe like his much-maligned AKA teammate Jon Fitch has been criticized of doing for the majority of his fights, Koscheck said that he is and that the reason why is the same as what people have been pointing as being Brock Lesnar most glaring weakness: he doesn’t like getting hit.

"If you look at when little Matt Serra was on top of him pounding him, he tapped out. So I believe that Georges has quit in him and you just have to take him to that point," Koscheck explained. "Nobody has been able to do it since those two but I plan on doing it on December 11th.I believe he hasn’t been hit since Matt Serra. That was a good crack. His chin hasn’t been tested and I think Georges has quit in him. If you look at the first Matt Hughes fight where he arm barred him, he was tapping before it was even tight."

Koscheck, who was outwitted more than once by the French Canadian during his stint on this season of The Ultimate Fighter went on to say that "Rush" is mentally weak and that unlike the countless upper echelon athletes from various sports, he doesn’t need a psychologist to make him strong.

I guess being repeatedly called a douchebag and getting ridiculed for having hair like an old lady for years has given him some pretty thick skin.

"I’m sure he was and I am sure he still does [have confidence issues]. Shrinks need shrinks," Koscheck tried to explain like he is actually making an intelligent point. "You don’t just go to somebody and they make you mentally stronger – you have either got it or you don’t."

So then if Kos loses to a boring, mentally weak quitter with a bad chin, what does that make him?

Things to love about Canada

1. Beer
2. Hockey
3. Relaxed Marijuana Laws
4. Poutine
"Don't have to put a hit out on Koscheck in's been taken care of."

too fuckin funny!! Doesn't this idiot realize that Montrealers rioted after they won a playoff hockey game. Didja hear that? Not after they won a series against a bitter rival, or if they won the Stanley Cup, like game one or two in a seven game series!! They may talk a little funny, but, French Canadians are not to be fucked with!! AND Montreal is one of the BEST cities in the world to party in!

If he ever shows up in Ontario, I'll get 'em, there is two people on this earth I wanna fuck up, Sean Avery is one, Fraggle fuckstick is the other

kos forgot to mention how easily GSP gave up when that one kid had him in a world of hurt back in the 8th grade during an intense bout of thumb wrestling....

We have a much better plan for Mr. Koscheck, myself and the other Canadian members here on CP have pitched in to get Josh a date the night before his fight with the lovely Miss Ajax :

They sell poutine at Burger King? What is the world coming to...

"it's not about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving foward" "to the death" "i'm going to try and kill you"
Well that worked out just great for Penn so Koscheck is giving it a go.

Looks like its shaping up to be GSP will win by karma again.

Check out a 2 part video on youtube called Bloodsport Karma for more people being humiliated for their trash talk.

I hope the blonde die on the dec 11 i'll spit on him like last time...
Austin3210- November 29, 2010 at 7:43 pm
Kind of wish that Daley had either KO'd Kos with that strike after the bell or that he had beaten Kos.

He may be a dick too, but at least his trash talk is somewhat interesting...

It's not:

Bro, male nurse. Bro, male nurse. Bro, male nurse. Bro, male nurse. Bro, male nurse. Male Nurse. Male Nurse. Male Nurse. Male Nurse. Male Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. Nurse. NURSIE. NURSIE. NURSIE. NURSIE.

What does that make Koscheck? It makes him a goddamn goofy-looking loudmouthed cunt. Plain and fucking simple.

Just like his mom.

In other news Josh Koscheck's cousin Cortland Finnerty, cornerback for the Tennessee Titans, received some brutal ground and pound at the hands of Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson during Sundays game.

Unfortunately, referee Yves Lavigne stopped the action too early and the bout was ruled No Contest.

I like poontang too...that being said, I hate Koscheck.

@ agentsmith

T.O., does have terrible poutine, and Old Montreal serves it phenomenally. That said, wherever you can find a small francophone community, you can find good poutine.

I have lived in four provinces and been to every one more than once, and they all gave great poutine!

Jesus fuck, we are talking about poutine. GO GSP!
Austin3210- November 29, 2010 at 5:18 pm
Apparently, according to Kos, to be a fighter you have to enjoy being hit.

My guess? I'm pretty sure no one likes taking a fist to the face. Kos sure seemed like he wanted to avoid any hand to face action against Paul "Watch me Flush my Career Down the Shitter" Daley.

EDIT: Kos may enjoy taking fists elsewhere, however, based on his recent comments on TUF.

"I'm gonna motorboat his ass"

I have a hunch that if GSP pulled a hockey stick out from under the octagon and hit Koscheck in the back of the head till he died... he may lose a point and they'd give Fraggle 5 minutes to resurrect, but the fight would be allowed to go on and GSP would still get the decision.

No one likes you, Josh.
agentsmith- November 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm
Yeah, Ontario does some poutine too, but not nearly as much or as good. I had some here in T.O. a week or two back and it sucked. The stuff I had in Montreal was like a party in my mouth.
Disco-Platypus- November 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm
Nah, it is a Canadian thing. I have lived in Alberta (born-raised) and Ontario, and we serve it everywhere. Originated in Kee-Beck, do', oo are for shore on 'dat.

At any rate, GSP slapped Koschek around for the first four minutes of their original fight, slapped Fitch around, stood with BJ, Alves, etc. Each of his opponents since Serra have blathered on about the same nonsense, and we know what happened there.

I agree somewhat that GSP is not interested in brutally injuring people, and I suspect that is why he (I think) chose not to break Hardy's arm. That said, both Alves and Fitch appeared as if they went through meat-grinders after their fights with GSP.
Bill Jackson- November 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm
Georges sure seemed to handle Penn's punches in their first fight. Actually, he came back to win the last two rounds after taking Penn's best punches for five minutes. Watch the fight again if you don't see it that way.
Morningwood- November 29, 2010 at 5:00 pm
GSP is going to win, but it won't be a good fight. Unless Kos Paul Daley's him after the fight.

GSP will take him down and control him. As hard as Kos is trying to get GSP to actually fight and have a slug fest. GSP won't fall for it. He'll stick to his game plan and control him on the ground.

Ontario recognizes poutine as well. I had some at Burger King on the weekend.
agentsmith- November 29, 2010 at 4:47 pm
@ Turd Furgeson:

Poutine isn't really a Canada-wide thing, it's mostly just a Quebec thing. And it is delicious.

@ get off me
that just made my day
Turd Furgeson- November 29, 2010 at 4:35 pm
After watching this season's TUF, I'm willing to admit that Kos is an immature douche bag, but I still want him to destroy GSP. I can't stand that dude.

Also I just looked up poutine on Wikipedia, and do you guys really eat that crap up north? Is probably the most unappetizing thing I've ever seen.
