KOS will win against GSP. He's too much of a wrestling stud to lose to George. I hope Randy wins this one but he is getting old and can't be much more fights in him.

Jeez, it wasn't that long ago that people said that Koscheck sucks and he is an expert lay and prayer. Or that GSP was one of the best pound for pound fighters and when he grabs the belt he'll hold onto it for years. Now he loses and suddendly Koscheck is just to powerful a wrestler? What is going on?

IMO GSP is the favorite and if he loses his career in the UFC could be in danger.

I'm kind of surprised to see people making KOS the favourite. I know he has improved greatly, but what of that improvement did we see against Sanchez? Sure he won, but it was possibly the slowest fight ive seen in ages, and far from a showcase of the new skillsets he has apparently developed.

Lets break it down.

Striking - GSP without question
Wrestling - KOS without question
Submissions - GSP
Takedowns - KOS
Defense - GSP
GnP - Even

KOS is an insane wrestler, better than hughes, but with the problems matt had taking down GSP i dont think KOS can count of the automatic takedown which means he's going to have to strike with Georges, and frankly, i dont think he can. So he's going to have to risk his neck striking to keep Georges off balance to get the takedown, and once on the ground im not convinced his GnP or submissions is good enough to end the fight considering GSP is excellent off his back with a really dynamic guard and solid submissions.

KOS might be able to grind out a decision by keeping top position, but i dont think he'll be able to keep GSP pinned like that for 3 rounds (assuming they spend 3 rounds on the mat). I think if it stays standing GSP will pick him apart, and if it goes to the ground i think GSP will be able to pull a sub....or maybe a sweep and TKO with GnP. Fact is, KOS is a wrestler, and we havent seen a lot of him off his back.....if GSP gets on top we all know he can end a fight from there and i dont see KOS having good enough defense to starve it off.

Gonna be a great fight though

Flak, I think GSP has million times better G&P than Koscheck. He drops those elbows and fists hard, Koscheck's strength on the ground is keeping them there.

I think GSP had a terrible fight against Matt Serra, the first punch that rocked GSP was a lucky one while Serra had is head down to cover...but he did a great job making sure George would not recover and got is KO.

I don't know if St-Pierre took the fight lightly even if he said a number of times that he was not the champion but a contender...

I think he will bounce back tremendously in is next fight...I just feel sorry for Koscheck

Cause if you think about it, Koscheck still need to prove he can fight...he never dominated a fight and against Sanchez (witch was probably the worst fight EVER!!) he only gave like 3 or 4 good punches against a terrible Diego that looked like he was scared to do anything...

So in other words...I will be extremely disapointed if the Aggressive 'Rush' St-Pierre would not dominate the fight against a defensive Kos that probably wont be able to do anything...I hope...

I think KOS still has a chance to get the takedown. He has a shot like no other, even better than Sherk's i think. The question is, once down can he do anything against the guard of GSP which is nothing short of outstanding?

I think GSP will pick KOS apart.

I don't think GSP's career will be in danger if he loses to Koscheck. He is still a huge draw for the UFC and to cut him off after losing back-to-back is stupid. He is still very young and there is still so much that he can learn and improve on.

GSP needs to fight Koscheck like how he fought Trigg: put him on his back and gnp him.
