Georges St-Pierre vs. Josh Koscheck - UFC 124

MMALinks


GSP took on Josh Koscheck in Montreal's UFC 124. The game plan GSP had in store for Koscheck couldn't be any clearer than what was displayed in the first round. Within the first 20 seconds Pierre had Koscheck on his back like a cheap prostitute...well perhaps it doesn't matter the cost...Koscheck was getting used and abused from the start. The game plan quickly changed as Koscheck began to develop swelling around his right eye. Koscheck defended a number take down attempts in the first round quickly getting to his feet when realizing he had nothing he could use in his arsenal against Pierre.

The second, third, fourth and fifth round was no different than the first round. Pierre had a huge advantage over his opponent. This is due to the fact that Koscheck swollen eye made it next to impossible for him to gauge depth and land effective strikes on Pierre. This fight was a little frustrating because it's not every-so-often we get to see one of the top contenders in this weight-class showcase their skills and with that said - the early swelling of Koschecks eye made for a lackluster fight. Had this injury not occurred - I think we all would've jokingly seen what we wanted to see and that is Pierre putting an [***] whoppin' on one of the top [****] talking mofo's in the UFC.

Every time Koscheck blinks from now on he will most likely have a flashback and flinch. Pierre had to have set a record for most thrown/landed jabs in UFC history. Joe Rogan definitely hit the nail on the head with his comments about how boxing is indeed an encompassed tool possessed in MMA. Pierre proved that in UFC 124. MMA is a fast moving sport and so much can happen within a short amount of time. The jab can be used to keep the pace of any fight, but it has to be used with caution. You can get countered and rocked and the fight is over. But, when the opportunity presents itself as it has tonight, you can clearly see that boxing and MMA truly compliment each other perfectly.

Pierre could have clearly rocked Koscheck at anytime and it seems that both fighters respected each other enough to realize that both of them had enough within their arsenal to change the fight at any given time. All Koscheck had to do was weather the storm "kind of like Brock did against Carwin". All in all the best man won tonight and the UFC Welterweight belt remains around the waist of the best pound for pound fighter in his division - Georges St. Pierre.
