He went there.

UFC welterweight grinder Mike Pierce will square off against former 170-pound number one contender Josh Koscheck on the main card of the UFC 143: "Diaz vs. Condit" pay-per-view (PPV) event this Saturday night (Feb. 4, 2012) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

So, what's the scouting report on "Kos?"

"He's the guy that everyone loves to hate in the welterweight division. He's like the Michael Bisping of the welterweights. Nobody likes that guy! Ya know, everybody has their thing. I'm not quite like that, I'm not gonna promote myself that way, everyone has their own style and for him that works, it's great, it's done well for him, but that's just not me. I'm gonna speak more inside the cage than out."

Hear more from Pierce on Koscheck and a whole lot more, courtesy of Fight Hub TV, after the jump.
