‘Something real fun for the fans’ at 185

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!

    When you know at 170 you can’t get it done I guess you have to try something else. Leben is close to a title shot so a fight with NumbFaceKos makes no sense.

    BJ Penn vs Lyoto Machida

    That one’s on the “actually happened” list, not the fantasy matchmaking list. Anywho, this sounds stupid as fuck. Why make this Bonnar fight? The only people who even have a foggy sense of the beef between Koscheck and Bonnar are hardcore fans. What’s Goldberg going to say, “THEY ARE MEETING TO SETTLE A DISPUTE OVER LIKENESS RIGHTS AND ROYALTIES HERE TONIGHT JOE!” Gimme a break. Koscheck/Leben 2 would be bizarre as well.

    is it gay sex? i hope it’s gay sex

  • iamphoenix

    how is leben close to a title shot.

  • Sodomize Intolerance

    If it is Leben and Kos takes him down, I get the voodoo witchdoctor feeling that Leben will jitz his ass.  Called it.

    koscheck vs 2 92lbs large Rottweilers

  • Mixed Martial Adam

    Leben is on a one fight win streak. I love the guy, but he’s nowhere near a title shot

  • Blackula Jonez

    Anybody who wins a fight is automatically “in the mix” you know this guys.

  • glassjawsh

    a 92 lb rottie would be TINY mine weighs 160

  • G Funk

    ^ Jesus! 160 lb rott! I’ve seen them but that’s not common. WTF does that painted mastiff eat?

  • glassjawsh

    what-the-fuck-ever he wants

    my brother punched him in the face one time

    then lost the use of 2 of the tendons in his middle finger after tank bit it off

  • Reverend Clint

    2 starving rotts vs kos… gives michael vick a boner

  • Billytk

    ^^ That gives me a GREAT idea.. 2 starving 160 lbs Rottis vs Vick!!
    I’d pay to see that

  • fishead

    probably outside the realm of possibility… but the idea of Koscheck and Sonnen beating each other senseless brings a tear of laughter to the corner of my eye.

    shit I forgot about that Stann loss. Otherwise Leben has won 4 of his last 5. That’s a good run but that loss is too recent. MY BAD. FUCK KOS.
