That’s one of many bold statements currently emanating from the “Kos” camp …
With 20 fights inside the Octagon under his belt, Josh Koscheck at the age of 34 is one of the most seasoned veterans to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) welterweight division.
Along the way, one of the original “Ultimate Fighters” finally earned his long awaited title shot against reigning division champion, Georges St. Pierre, at UFC 124 almost 1.5 years ago. “Rush” dominated the fight from the opening bell, displaying his improved striking skills after training under famed boxing coach Freddie Roach. St. Pierre peppered Koscheck repeatedly with a very precise and accurate jab that found its target all night.
That target was Koscheck’s right eye.
By the end of the 25-minute fight, it was swollen shut and St. Pierre had defended his title successfully for the fifth straight time. The injury to his right eye kept the former NCAA-Division 1 wrestler out of action for nine months.
