"I think the first time me and Georges faced off, I think mentally I was all ‘this guy is a karate guy.’ I didn’t believe he could possibly take me down. I didn’t think that was an option. Throughout my camp my mental game was work on my stand-up, work on my stand-up, because this guy isn’t going to be able to take me down, one of the things about Georges St-Pierre is he’s a fast learner. There’s definitely a lot more to it than wrestling. And that’s something I’ve learned over the past couple of years is it’s just not wrestling, I gotta become a complete fighter. I think I’ve become a better fighter than the first time Georges fought me. I’m coming here well prepared. I’m gonna be ready to come in here and put on a good show and come out with a victory. My goal coming into this fight is definitely to knock Georges out. They’re gonna be yelling for Georges and my goal is to piss 22,000 people off and come out of here with a nice new shiny belt and hop on a plane and get home as quickly as I can."
-- Number one welterweight contender Josh Koscheck tells MMAWeekly.com about his getaway plan after he finishes 170-pound champion Georges St. Pierre in front of his hometown crowd at UFC 124 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on Dec. 11. Not too long ago Matt Serra had a similar strategy at UFC 83, telling the hostile crowd at the weigh in, "If you're pissed right now, wait until Saturday night." Serra ended up eating those words after getting punished by "Rush" en route to a technical knockout loss. What are the odds that "Kos" can back up his trash talk on fight night and actually pull off a championship robbery in front of 22,000 distraught fans -- good, better than good or downright bad? Either way, something tells me the Mounties should crack out the riot gear just in case that prediction is accurate.
