Do you have any desire to See KOS as a Middleweight?
I sure as hell don’t.
From MMA Mania:
“Kos” revealed earlier today that he intends to take just one fight at 185 pounds before returning to the 170-pound division because it would “be something real fun for the fans.” He even hinted that an opponent had already been lined up, but no official word yet on who it might be.
Josh Koscheck is not going to entertain me at 185. His ‘grudge’ match with Stephan Bonner bores me to death. Who’s he gonna fight? Who cares. These kinds of things rarely excite me, especially when they offer nothing to one fighter. What established middleweight wants to fight Kos? What is the upside? If he beats Kos, it most likely doesn’t push him up the UFC hill, if he loses, once again (like Machida fighting Sonnen) he slides drastically down the hill. What’s Kos got to lose? Zip, he wins, it solidifies his place at the top of the 170lb heap, he loses, and eeemmph. He’s a 170lber, these things happen, no harm no foul. The only way this fight is entertaining is if Kos is KO’d or KO’s somebody. Kos getting KO’d is more likely since he will probably be smaller and a bit weaker than someone who regularly competes at 185. It occurs to me, I might just be interested in this fight after all.
From Cage Potato.com:
It seems that our hunch may be correct as a source has indicated to us that Koscheck is in early discussions to possibly face his The Ultimate Fighter nemesis Chris Leben, whom he defeated on the first season of the show by unanimous decision.
I will have to eat my own words, if it’s Chris ‘the crippler’ Leben, I’m in. I will happily pay to watch that fight, begging for a highlight reel finish just like he did with this win over Wandy.
