UFC no. 1 welterweight title contender Josh Koscheck is preparing in all MMA fields for his upcoming UFC 124 bout against George St Pierre. He admits that St Pierre is a great strategist and will possibly force him to fight off of his back again. Koscheck feels confident coming into this fight, focusing a lot on his wrestling takedown defense. The former collegiate wrestling champion will continue watching more of GSP’s fights so that he can come up with the right game plan come December 11 in Montreal, Canada.
Will Koscheck have the right strategy against GSP in their rematch bout at UFC 124 or will GSP defend his 170-pound title once again?
From Josh Koscheck:
“The lesson I learned was the fact that you got to become a more complete fighter. You just can’t rely on wrestling. You have to have wrestling defense. And Georges is definitely a strategist. He’s going to come in with a good game plan, and I believe that he’s going to come in with a different game plan. He’s a smart guy. He has a lot of smart people around him… And I have to be prepared to fight off my back. I have to be prepared to fight this fight anywhere, in a bad situation. And there’s a chance that I could be fighting off my back again in this fight because Georges is that type of athlete. He’s very, very good. I got to be prepared to fight off my back… And I’ve seen a lot of his fights. I’m going to continue to watch his fights and study them. I’m going to have a great game plan and I’m going to come into this fight and come out with a victory come December.”
