Immediately upon defeating Paul Daley, Josh Koscheck was announced to be coaching The Ultimate Fighter season 12 opposite UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and, in following the tradition of the show, the two coaches will battle it out upon the show’s conclusion. After engaging in a long and drawn out war of words with Daley during the lead up to their meeting, the former NCAA Division 1 wrestler wasted no time to begin the cycle of verbal bashing anew; this time with St. Pierre as the target and “TUF.” During a recent interview with MMA30, Koscheck responded to criticism regarding his bout with Daley, explained how he would beat St. Pierre and revealed his plans to get into St. Pierre’s head.

When asked if the fact that the infamous sucker-punch that Daley threw long after the last bell overshadowed the fight itself bothered him, Koshceck said that it did not because his performance was one that he is okay with fan’s forgetting.

“No, because I don’t think the fight was one of my best performances,” he said. “I had to listen to my coaches; they said game plan, game plan, game plan for twelve weeks in training. I had a lot of adversity coming into this fight. I showed up and I fought. I stuck to the game plan and I fought a conservative, good, clean fight.”

While Koscheck acknowledged that he played it conservatively against Daley, he also told MMA30 that he will be throwing caution to the wind when he steps into the cage opposite St. Pierre.

“No,” he said when asked if he would play it safe against “Rush.” “I’m going out there to knock him out. I’m not going out there just to win a boring fight. He may be the type of fighter that comes in with a good game plan and fights conservatively and safe. I’m going out a reckless abandon and I’m coming to knock him out.”

Koscheck is as known for his trash talk as St. Pierre is for never reacting to such. “Kos” may have his work cut out for him if he plans on shaking “Rush” with words but, whether or not it ends up working, Koscheck says that he is willing to test St. Pierre’s limits.

“Yeah well, we’ll see,” he said when reminded of St. Pierre’s past reactions to trash talk. “We’ll see on ‘TUF 12' how I can get under his skin.”
