    Its funny. You'll see BJJ schools with a Professor (usually a younger Professor) who has a dominant top or bottom game and his students will sometimes be uncomfortable playing the other side (ie. where their professor is dominant) because they spend so much time defending that position and not learning from it.

    I like Kos, and despite the fact that i understand UFC is an entertainment venture, i do believe the primary emphasis should be on it's being a proving ground for athletes and styles. So I really don't mind his whole 'lay & pray' thing.

    That being said, I knew he was gonna lose before the fight even started. In spite of all the overconfident posturing, I could really see the fear in his eyes once he got in the ring. Seriously, if you have a chance, watch this fight again and look at how he looks inside the cage with GSP before they start. The guy is really worried. The way he was looking I knew the fight was over before it even started,

    The hesitation/panic was obvious in his every movement.

    The problem is that is usually much easier said than done.

    Probably 185 or so. I imagine Koscheck, who as a decorated collegiate wrestler is no stranger to cutting weight, weighed about the same.

    In about 5 years Koscheck is going to be a big name... right now he's really fucking over-rated. His stand-up is ****, and he doesn't adapt very well in the ring if things don't go exactly his way. St. Pierre took him right out of his gameplan, and it was like he didn't even know how to wrestle

    Kos got schooled by one of the best athletes in the game. No shame in that. He'll learn from it (if his ego lets him), and eventually he'll be at that level.

    Just not today.

    Again I have to say KOS did better than Trigg, Sherk, and Hughes part 2

    So he's pretty damn good

    I look foward to seeing Kos several years from now, when he is not so fucking cocky and has learned how to be a complete fighter and not a boring wrestler.

    As of right now, I enjoy watching him get beaten the **** down and hope it continues to happen.
