Kos - I'd like to shut Hughes up

UFC Mania interview



UFCmania: It was later revealed that he had a serious staph infection going into the fight. Is that an excuse or do you feel you beat the "real" Diego at 100 percent that night?

Josh Koscheck: Well, everyone always has excuses when they lose fights. Just look at Georges St. Pierre - he made all those retarded excuses about not training right and all of the other stuff when he lost to Matt Serra. If you lose it's time to man-up, admit it and take responsibility for your loss. You didn't win that day - too bad. Don't make excuses about it.



UFCmania: What was the thinking behind the "no heart/weak chin" comment? Is that just fight hype or do you really believe that?


Josh Koscheck: If you need a sports psychologist you definitely have some loose screws. And I think that Georges doesn't have the heart that he thinks he does. He relies a lot on his athletic ability to get him out of trouble and make up for what he lacks in terms of heart. I'm definitely going to test his heart. Don't get me wrong, Georges St. Pierre is a nice guy, but fuck, I'm a nice guy, too. I want to whoop his ass. It's business -- this is my career and my livelihood on the line. I'm trying to hurt that fool.



UFCmania: If you could only fight one more time -- forever -- and you could fight anybody in the world of MMA, past or present, who would you like to fight?


Josh Koscheck: I'd like to shut Matt Hughes up. Now you've got me thinking about him (laughs). I mean me and Hughes have been cool but he's always been arrogant and cocky. People who think I'm arrogant and cocky have to look at Matt Hughes -- he's ten times worse.


LOL - I wonder what excuse KOS would make after being dominated by Hughes?

Hughes does seem pretty arrogant.

Or when GSP breaks his face on Saturday for that matter.

^ Stop talkin' about me behind my back, bitch.

dude you dont even know how hard i cheered and hit the damn roof when Fickett nailed that knee and then choked his ass out

More than likely, but this is Superman we are talking about. Look at the way he bragged about beating Sanchez, but a staph infection that puts you on the shelf for a hell of a long time, is just an excuse. Lord knows, Superman there would just jump in the ring, pull a win out his ass in impressive fashion. Oh wait, Kos has never won a fight in impressive fashion. The more I hear from this guy or his nuthuggers, the more I hate this clown, I can't wait for him to step up to some real competition and get his ass schooled

19 & ooooooonnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

'People who think I'm arrogant and cocky have to look at Matt Hughes -- he's ten times worse." This is a great quote. I like Koscheck, hes got personality, its what the sport needs. People who call him and lindland 'blankets' seem to be only recognizing fights from 3 or 4 years ago and are trying to act cool.

LOL Card !

I met Kos and he was the most arogant person I have ever met and I have met Hughes as well and he came across as humble not arrogant.  Some people mistake confidence for arrogance.

Holy crap I knew Kos was kind of an idiot but, after reading that he's clueless as well. Damn just about everone in every sport on every team has a sport psychologist on the payroll

fact is, if you DONT have one YOUR the idiot

"Even Stephane Patry, St. Pierre's former manager, said he wasn't happy when the UFC offered him a fight with Koscheck.



"Georges will have a tough time with Koscheck," said Patry, who took care of St. Pierre's UFC contract until they recently parted ways. "When they offered me Koscheck I wasn't thrilled. He's a good wrestler, and that's one of Georges's strengths too.



"In any other fight, if he were to get into trouble he could always rely on his wrestling. But not here."

Hmmmmmmmm, fail.

I was more than pleased he shut down Dirty Diego Sanchez, but don't
see him beatin' the country boy....

cwcoogan-"... People who call him and lindland 'blankets' seem to be only recognizing fights from 3 or 4 years ago and are trying to act cool."-----------------------------------------------------------------------I'm sorry, what fights has he been FINISHING w/ KO's, subs, or ground and pound ? His most exciting fight is one where he got KO'd. He's all personality and zero finish.

Well, he did KO Chris Sanford or whatever. He was sleepin'. So he can finish - he just needs to finish higher quality comp.

^ Correct. There could be one more, if i remember correctly. Was it Goulet?

He knocked down Goulet and finished him with pretty brutal ground and pound. I think Goulet tapped even.
