Josh Koscheck: 'Paul Daley isn't gonna hit me with anything I haven’t been hit with'




"The way I see it, Paul Daley is just a guy that just likes to talk trash and he’s a one-dimensional fighter. Those guys are from the old days – like the one-dimensional wrestler or the one-dimensional striker. Those days are over, and you’ve got to become a complete mixed martial artist. But I was at that point once. I was a one-dimensional wrestler, and coming from The Ultimate Fighter days, if you look at the evolution of Josh Koscheck, I’ve changed and I’m excited about the transition I made and the sacrifices I made to get here. I can submit guys, I can knock guys out, I can head kick guys, and I’m not gonna have a problem standing toe-to-toe with Paul Daley. He’s not gonna hit me with anything I haven’t been hit with."

Former UFC welterweight number one contender Josh Koscheck hopes to get another crack at Georges St. Pierre by defeating the hard-hitting British import Paul Daley at UFC 113 on May 8 in Montreal. "Semtex" has won four straight with four first round knockouts. Will "Kos" be number five? The AKA standout doesn't seem too worried over Daley's power, but after what happened against Paulo Thiago, should he be? Or is this just pre-fight posturing that will see him rely on his wrestling to grind out a win?
