Yeah, that's pretty much it right there. He has grown on me since he has become a little more humble.
I don't know if it's because we don't watch his antics on tv anymore or what but he seems like he has matured.

I don't like Koscheck never have. But I don't hate him either. Ever since his fight with Hazelett he has been pretty fun to watch.

I like him in the ring. I don't care otherwise. He used to be a boring lay and pray fighter - but since he pounded that guy and got him bleeding all over the place - he's been exciting in his fights.

Kos grew on me. Around the Sanchez fight. The good fight with Hazlett was a plus.

Than with what he did to Lytle, how can you not appreaciate ownage like that? Took the Alves fight on short notice, lost bounced back a month later with the fight that he'd been training for and destroyed.

Koscheck is a treanch figher. Dude will fight anyone at anytime. You have to respect that.

Noteable loses to GSP and Alves keep his rep up. Dude ain't losing to cans.

This is when I really started to respect Kos. Never liked his attitude or his amazing hair, but as an athlete and a fighter, he has definitely grown on me.

Kos has definitely stepped up several notches for me. He is taking fights like a fighter should, and he is doing what he can to make himself a more well rounded/exciting fighter.

I'm happy to watch him fight now. That's a big step up from hating him with a fiery passion.

Even I like him now, and I used to despise him. The kind of heart he showed against Alves was what he won me over with eventually. Although I rooted for Yoshida and even bet some credits on him, I was excited about Joshs performance yesterday, it was a beautiful KO.

He's really being a pain in the ass for Dana... When they finally want to get rid of him because of that retarded video game, he suddenly starts to entertain and win all the fans over.

've always loved KOS since he started torturing Leben on TUF. I started out liking KOS simply because I hated Leben so much. But I've definitely grown into a genuine fan of his.

I've always liked kos. I never watched that season of TUF that he was on, I'm not a huge fan of the show, but I've liked him in the UFC for sure.

I really started to like him when he whipped diego for a decision, and then was grandstanding at the end to make diego cry.

He's got great takedowns, and that overhand right can do some damage, as witnessed last night.
