I was a Leben fan, so I hated Kos for the longest time. But... now he's a fighter I look forward to. He grew on me for sure, and I was jumpin up and down when he knocked Yoshida out.

I also liked Leben and still do, but Kos is becoming more of well rounded fighter everytime we see him and I could like him as a fighter too I suppose.

Kos has been my favorite WW for a while. HE will move up the ranks sooner than later.

Leben is one of my favorite fighters, and I absolutely hated KOS on TUF....still dont care too much for him, but he surely has impressed me as of late. Prob wont root for him, ever, but hes gotten alot better, so props to him.

He also kept changing the subject of the question to say he didn't care what fans thought of him but should check out his new clothing line that was coming out.

He also talked about how GSP didn't do anything to him in their fight and seemed to disrespect him. Personally I didn't like that as GSP was classy after their fight when he went into Kos' lockerroom to tell him he was a great fighter, keep your head up and that he will be a champ someday.

Mainly it was his attitude as a arrogant prick in the way he came off.


see this type of attitude puts him is a Kevin Randleman/Jens Pulver area....fighters that you know are damn good, but sometimes run thier mouth and say ignorant stuff that mkes you wanna only support the "good guys" (Randy, Nog, Rich, etc.)

coming from a wrestling background , i like cos from the start. he had a very impressive win. as for the poor bastard at the end of that orver hand right... he started off well enough. durring the pre-fight interviews he spoke about being able to nullify that exact punch that he fell to. he also said that he only trained specificaly for kos for only about two weeks. hmmm

I guess I could count myself as a Koscheck fan in the fact that I look forward to his fights but he is not my favorite WW by far. But I have for some time considered him a top 5 WW and still do.

Pity they are from the same camp but I'd like to see Kos fight Fitch or Swick. They would be sick fights.
You hit the nail on the head. Kos has been gaining my respect with each of his last few fights. I would love to see him vs Swick.

I used to dislike him but much like everybody else I pretty much got used to him. Also I can't help but respect someone who can take a beating the way he did from Thiago. I enjoy watching him fight but I can't say that I would be dissapointed to see him lose, I wouldn't really care honestly, so I can't really say i'm a true fan of his. But i'll admit that he is an entertaining fighter now.
