If you pay attention to the small details in life, chances are you noticed the clip at the end of last night’s premiere of The Ultimate Fighter 12 that showed a brief glimpse of Josh Koscheck being his endearing self as he appears to grab a Team St-Pierre member by the throat before a scuffle ensues.
Middleeasy made a slowed-down gif of the video above and it turns out that the dude Kos rape chokes is either a somewhat rotund crew member or a random guy who wandered in off the street wearing a TapouT shirt in GSP’s team colors. Whatever the case is, it’s likely just another instance of a set-up scenario or creative editing to make JK look like the bad guy. It all seems very "WWE" to me. He nearly crack a smile as he confront the Biz Markie lookalike who likely hasn’t been a lightweight since junior high.
Check it out after the jump and judge for yourself whether or not the fracas seems staged.

Team St-Pierre’s Dane Sayers seems to get the worst of the situation as he gets face-palmed by Koscheck while trying to diffuse the situation.
So if fighters get kicked off the show for fighting each other, what do they get for fighting a coach who bitch slaps him?
