Josh Koscheck: 'If Georges doesn't take me seriously, he's going to sleep'

Quoteworthy:

"I saw some weaknesses in him and I definitely plan to use that against him. I think he knows he has his hands full with me. Well, I don't know, maybe he doesn't. Maybe he doesn't believe I'm a better fighter than I was in 2007 and if he doesn't, it's his mistake. If he feels that way, I know he's going to wake up after getting knocked out and say to himself, ‘Oh [expletive], I should have taken him seriously.' I'm confident and I believe in myself and I believe I'm going to win and Georges knows that now. How people wind up perceiving that, frankly, I don't care. I think this is a good season [of TUF] and people will enjoy it, but I'm all about winning. If the fans like me, great, but that's not my goal in this. My goal is to get that belt and that's what this is all about."

Anybody else feel like we have an overload of pre-fight trash talk right now? With Chael Sonnen and James Toney putting in work, there is virtually no room left for verbal warfare from anybody else. But, we have to just gotta dig deep, fight through it, and welcome Josh Koscheck aboard. The latest missile fired out of Josh's mouth is a warning to GSP stating that if the welterweight kingpin isn't taking him seriously, he's gonna be taking a nice knockout-induced nap come December 11. So, I ask you what is more likely... St. Pierre overlooking "Kos," or the TUF 1 veteran shutting the champ's lights off?
