George St Pierre Vs Josh Koscheck
December 12, 2010 by staff
George St Pierre Vs Josh Koscheck, If two athletes who share the bench even a professional sports team were to enter a piece, it would be the hot topic of every sports talk show on television and radio. All the Internets would spit hot fire on the way he is so unprofessional and represents the continued demise of sport in the era of big-money. So why mixed martial arts be different? Why can not teammates – those who train in the gym itself and / or fight under one flag – step into the cage and slug it out with each other? They do in the gym during training camps, so why not get paid for it once? It would indeed be met with cheers and praise instead of boos and disgust.
Most fighters, of course, do not see it that way. “I’ll never fight against Jon Fitch,” said UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck, who fought and lost champion Georges St. Pierre Saturday night at UFC 124.
If Koscheck beat St-Pierre, he would have faced his training partner of the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, California, sooner rather than later. “I’ll go to the weight class or I’ll cut my leg and move down a weight class,” said Koscheck.
But whatever the outcome of last night’s fight, Koscheck should be forced to fight Fitch that the fight should be the most viable plan, market and promote. All team members must have to do. Although the prospect of having to punch and kick a friend in the face or legs or abs might not seem as nice as, for example, by sending them a birthday card, it’s their job. They are fighters. They chose this line of work. The nobility of the profession is to have the courage to enter a cage and see who emerges victorious.
At the time that Lyoto Machida has been at the top of the world light heavyweight UFC with the belt around his waist, popular sentiment was put in the cage with middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
Silva, Brazilian colleagues, declined. Refusal. Said he did not enter the cage with my brother. ”
Jon “Bones” Jones of upstate New York is the rising star of the UFC, the model of what is to come in the next few years in mixed martial arts. It is part of the team noted coach Greg Jackson in Albuquerque, NM Rashad Evans is the No. 1 contender at light heavyweight. Same division as Jones.
“If Rashad Evans won the belt, which I’m hoping he does, my only goal would be the toughest opponent he is, and keep whipping butt without being champion,” Jones said Media in London in October during the week of UFC Fight 120. “I would stay at 205 and the second best. That would be my goal.”
UFC president Dana White has been outspoken on the issue of same camp fighters not wanting to mix everything. And with the expansion of the UFC feather and bantamweight divisions and the influx of these fighters WEC, the subject will continue to be raised. At one point, members of the Woman ccks Uriah Faber Alpha team, a growing group of talented fighters and small, will have to enter the cage with another on television, not only in the gym.
“When you enter, you are yourself,” said UFC welterweight Ricardo Almeida, family member Renzo Gracie. “But it’s a team effort. You need a lot of people to be there for you to do training and during the difficult time for you to be able to accomplish in the octagon. And people who do not see that, too bad for them. “
