UFC Quick Quote: Georges St. Pierre knows Josh Koscheck better than Josh Koscheck


"Yeah, I think he’s going to try to put me down. I also think he’s going to try to knock me out with his big right hand but I know him. I’ve been studying so much tape on him, I’ve got to the point where I know Josh Koscheck probably better than he even knows himself. My coaches have been studying him a lot. Being with him on the Ultimate Fighter for eight weeks was a way for me to know him a little bit better as a person and as a fighter.... I knew how he was before I got there. I think he was like that to get inside my head, and to keep the fans entertained. I don’t think he’s a bad person. In a way, I think that’s his way to motivate himself. He likes to be the bad guy.... [I'll ] win, that’s all I can say. Submission or knockout."

-- When he's not wandering through the Land of the Lost, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is studying his upcoming opponent, Josh Koscheck. "Rush" claims that he knows "Kos" better than the man himself, watching him on film and in person on the set of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). St. Pierre was able to handle Koscheck in their first encounter, beating him at his own wrestling game en route to a unanimous decision victory. The surprise gameplan kept Koscheck on his back virtually all night, which is an awkward place to be for any accomplished wrestler. Is St. Pierre going to be one step ahead of the number one contender once again at UFC 124 on Dec. 11 or will "Kos" find a way to disrupt the Canadian's riddum in front of his hometown crowd?
