Quoteworthy:

"If this show [TUF 12] is successful, it's probably not going to be because of Georges St. Pierre's personality. I didn't have to work on it [becoming a heel]. I've always been an ornery little [profane]. I have a knack for getting under people's skin. I want to be an entertainer. I want to be the guy who makes money outside of the cage. If I've got to be the villain to do it, then I'll do that. Life would be boring if you didn't have controversy. This sport would be boring if you had guys who were just like a Georges, who looks like a robot, talks like a robot, and fights like a robot. You need guys out there with personality. There's not many guys who are out there who are willing to do that. I'm willing to do that." 

We would all be lucky to be as "boring" as UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre. But apparently, Mr. Koscheck doesn't share that same opinion. In what reads as an application for the job of "UFC's biggest villain," Josh pledges his love for being disliked and says it just comes naturally to him. I'm not so sure that's a good thing. Is "Kos" taking this whole villain persona a bit too seriously? Would he be better off focusing on his training rather than marking his reputation as the resident bad boy? I think I know the answer to these proposed questions, but let's hear your thoughts, Maniacs.
