It's all thanks to Johny Hendricks, who "Kos" fought in the co-main event of last night's (Sat., May 5, 2012) UFC on FOX 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" event from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
It was a competitive contest that went the distance and saw Hendricks emerge victorious via split decision, a judges call Koscheck obviously didn't agree with. The loss drops him to 17-6 and brings him to an interesting point in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career. He's lost twice to the champion in his division, he's 34-years-old, and he seems to be taking more damage each time out to the cage.
Maybe he's got a few good years left in him but it's fair to wonder at this point what the future holds for a guy who first showed up in the UFC as a contestant on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).
Hey, at least his face is still intact this time. So it's not all doom and gloom.
