Koscheck sends Sanchez a holiday message

Josh Koscheck on Diego Sanchez Myspace ufc 69 victory

It didn't take Josh Koscheck's MySpace administrator long to fire back and send a friendly message over to Diego Sanchez' page.

Just hours after "Kos" handed "Nightmare" the first loss of his professional mixed martial arts career at UFC 69, he had someone post a comment wishing Sanchez a Happy Easter.

He even threw in some love with the "xoxo."

Perhaps it's the final barb between the two.

But I tend to think this feud just got much worse after that bizarre fight last night.

Put simply, it was for the most part a poor sparring session.

And that's exactly what Sanchez wanted it seems, telling Koscheck in his initial MySpace comment that he "has no hands."


For now, the two appear headed in different directions -- the UFC welterweight division just got turned upside-down.

Here's a post-fight remark from Koscheck in the Los Angeles Times on the situation:

"This division got definitely stirred up tonight. Now I'm one step closer to my goal of winning the belt. I proved tonight that I'm capable of fighting for a belt. That's why I'm in this."

However, newly-minted UFC Welterweight Champion Matt Serra could very well make his first title defense against Matt Hughes in the near future. (By the way, wasn't he just a little too happy last night?).

In the meantime, St. Pierre could rebound and possibly fight Koscheck for a number one contender spot.

And maybe we'll get to see Sanchez fight another American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product -- and Koscheck training partner -- Jon Fitch in the near future.

Who knows ... anything is possible now in the Wild, Wild UFC Welterweight West.
