It sounds like Josh Koscheck’s face is finally recovering from the smashing delivered by Georges St Pierre last December. He’s now looking for a November return at 185 that’ll be ‘something real fun for the fans.’ If he’s talking about sitting in a dunk tank at the next UFC expo, then I agree wholeheartedly – that sounds like tons of fun!
But really, what could Koscheck be talking about? Is he still trying to land a fight with Stephan Bonnar, who’s in a spat with Josh over a satirical t-shirt that led to a lawsuit? Or is he talking about taking all of Chris Leben’s recent success and stealing it with some crazy wrestle-fucking?
I’m not too hot oon the Bonnar fight mainly because I don’t see Bonnar making the cut to 185 and I don’t see the UFC putting a match together between two guys who are suing eachother. You might as well leave that in your fantasy matchmaking list alongside Jon Jones vs Brock Lesnar, BJ Penn vs Lyoto Machida, and Georges St Pierre vs Anderson Silva.
But the Leben fight would be interesting. We all remember the craziness that went on between the two on season 1 of TUF, and I’m sure Leben still wakes up at night thinking someone’s spraying him with hose water and the words ‘FATHERLESS BASTARD’ echoing in his ears.
With Koscheck one up on Leben from the show, it would be ‘fun for the fans’ indeed to see these two go at it again. Sure, it’d probably end up exactly like the first. But maybe Chris can punch himself really hard in the face 30 seconds in the fight to get into his magical punching nirvana state. Then all bets are off!
