"I whispered to him, I said, 'Now I'm doing the Jon Fitch fight.' That's what I said to him. He said, 'Good luck with that.' I don't know. I'm just f*cking with him. If the fight made sense, because there was a time when those two were both going like this (towards each other), but if the fight made sense, yeah, I'd try to make it. I wouldn't do it just to do it."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White tells members of the media last night after the UFC 143 post-fight press conference that now that Josh Koscheck has parted ways with long time training camp American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose and will now be training in Fresno, he would not mind putting together a long desired match-up between Koscheck and long time training partner Jon Fitch. Throughout the years, the two have consistently been atop the rankings of the UFC welterweight division but have often stated they would never fight each other due to their close friendship and status at AKA. With "Kos" on a two fight win streak and winning his last five of six and Fitch losing his last time out against Johnny Hendricks, it may be a while before the two are even again on the rankings boards. However, should they ever reach that level, Koscheck is still sticking to his guns that it will never happen. No word if Fitch feels the same way. Anyone hoping this fight ever comes to fruition? Or did this ship sail long ago?
