Why is Koscheck wasting his career?

Robbie Lawler? Really? I really believe Koscheck is on the level or better than Macdonald, diaz, Condit etc and he's been fighting bums..minus Hendricks. Him vs gsp 3 would sell if he was actually taking his career seriously and fighting these guys who matter.

    He lost decisively to the champion. He shouldn't be able to get a rematch in only a few fights.

    I don't see why he shouldn't be half way down the ladder.

    GSP vs Kos 3 WOULD NOT sell, I repeat, WOULD NOT sell

    Unless Kos can get 3 or 4 devastating finishes in a row he WILL NOT get a title shot as long as GSP is champ

    fighting gsp for a 3rd time would no doubt make him in both eyes this time and spark the end of his career.

    Things Anderson is most scared of:



    Weidman.

    fighting fair.

    IMHO Lawler is a viable opponent for anyone in the top 10 - 7 of the WW division. Elite fighters maybe not, but he's got a strong wrestling base and throws certified dynamite at people.

    This, Kos beats 95% of the division, and gets dominated by the other 5%. He'll never hold or even be considered for a belt as long as GSP runs the division.

    Also, since when did me and WarWest agree on stuff? I thought the world didn't end:p.
    Bet Record: 2-3

    Kos tried to move up to MiddleWeight. White said, "No". Protect that cash cow White...It's finally catching up today. Been waiting years for people to realize it.

    I dont mind Kos vs Lawler, Kos might get hard headed again to prove a point and stand, and Im not saying he has no chance of winning ther
    stand up, but he has a better chance grinding it out for a tko...I think...Either way, Kos for the win... By KO in the first minute I hope ;)

    i could see not wanting lawler in there but anyone who doesn't want to see Manhoef fight is nuts.

    Idc if he went on a 20 fight losing streak in the UFC, id still want him with the organization. Dude's a beast of entertainment.

    Koscheck has lost a lot of confidence,to me it looks like he is just going through the motions.He used to feel he was a badboy and a big name but now he realizes he is a non factor.
    I don't know what he can do to ignite the fire under him.He said it best in that in his stand up routine,he said it would be nice if GSP retired or moved up.As long as GSP is there he knows he won't be Champion.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    he knows he wont get another title shot he means, guys had 2 and both were dull so the chances of him being matched with gsp again are slim to none.

    I don't get why fighters don't take easy fights more often. A lot of these guys have insane skills, but their records suck only because they constantly fight the number 2 or 3 ranked guy in the world

    agree...he's one of those guys that are extremely skilled but starts to settle on the fact that they prob can't get a belt...he'd def be champ in any other organization, but i'm sure it wouldn't be the same as winning a UFC belt

    Completely agree!! Please GOD there should NOT be a GSP vs KOS 3......what the hell for....complete waste of time. The only positive from this fight, is for KOS to make some great money, but no entertainment value at all!!!

  • PunchBagPunchBag Posts: 7,784Free
    i can see him getting another shot at the title once gsp retires/looses and theres a new champ, but until then he has no real purpose at ww.

    Matt Hughes is the No. 2 All-Time Welterweight, Mike Pierce is one of the toughest guys in the weight class (even if no one knows it), and he came real close to beating Hendricks, you could even argue he won that fight. Assuming he's still in his prime, he's going to destroy Robbie Lawler, and I see him being the one to derail Demian Maia's run to the top.
    Favorite Fighters by Division:

    Tim Elliott
    Eddie Wineland
    Frankie Edgar
    Melvin Guillard/TJ Grant
    Mike Pierce
    Michael Bisping
    Alexander Gustafsson
    Minotauro Nogueira/Matt Mitrione

    I think Kos wins just by setting up his leg kicks and hi-kicks w/ punches and keeping his hands up. I'm guessing Lawler doesn't want Kos on top, so he may be reluctant to let his kicks and knee go. Lawler may go for elbows in the tie ups and box n' brawl. I see Lawler utilizing the uppercut, overhand rights, ya know, the KO punches an stuff to get the job done. It'd be interesting to see Lawler get into a title contention with an unset win since Koscheck's title shot status is all but non-existent in all due seriousness.
