"The lesson I learned was the fact that you got to become a more complete fighter. You just can't rely on wrestling. You have to have wrestling defense. And Georges is definitely a strategist. He's going to come in with a good game plan, and I believe that he's going to come in with a different game plan. He's a smart guy. He has a lot of smart people around him... And I have to be prepared to fight off my back. I have to be prepared to fight this fight anywhere, in a bad situation. And there's a chance that I could be fighting off my back again in this fight because Georges is that type of athlete. He's very, very good. I got to be prepared to fight off my back... And I've seen a lot of his fights. I'm going to continue to watch his fights and study them. I'm going to have a great game plan and I'm going to come into this fight and come out with a victory come December."
The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 conference call took place yesterday featuring coaches Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck. And aside from the awkward back-and-forth banter that took place between the two top welterweights, a bit of strategy for the fight was discussed. Koscheck admitted the fact that he realizes there is a very good chance that he could be on his back for much of the fight, just like their first bout at UFC 74. He says he's ready for it. Do you think he is? Is there any way that if Josh ends up on his back he'll walk away the victor? What are the keys to this match? Let's hear some strategy, Maniacs.
