kos is better than jake, paul daley actually stuffed jakes TD's while he only delayed kos's also fitch and shields don't have explosive T'D's like kos which helps alot.
they can also promote this alot easier than others for the fact that kos is the last person to take a round from gsp.
whether you hate kos or not he has the best chance at beating GSP.
Yeah, but GSP would take down Shields as easily as he'd take down Koscheck, the difference is, Shields is much better off his back than Koscheck is. GSP is in danger on top of Shields, he's in danger of little except a buck from Koscheck.
The only "glancing blow" that occurred was the sucker punch Daley gave Kos at the end. And you can't even call it a sucker punch, b/c Kos knew it was coming, defended against it, and the shot "glanced" off Kos' glove.
And Kos did commit a foul; by pretending that the knee hit him. "What happened?" asked Kos. Well, what happened was, Daley escaped, began to gain momentum forward, threw a knee, and Kos used the opportunity to create room between himself and his on-coming opponent.
FYI, a knee to any part of the body, save for the head, is a legal maneuver. The fact it came close to the head is neither a foul, nor illegal. Also, prove to me intent that the shot was intended for Kos' head. Once again, I remind you that, any other part of the body, including, but not limited to, the collar bone, is legal.
I don't know if you're just trolling the forum w/ the nonsense that the attempted hit is the worst thing since Babalu's choke, or if you don't grasp the concept of "no harm, no foul." And a foul was committed, as, once again, Kos was able to remove an oncoming opponent, and gain an undeserved rest. Either way, I won't be responding to you on this matter again.
Okay my only major issue with this is that you make little distinction between a knee to the head of downed opponent versus knee to any other part of a downed opponent when the attacker is standing. In the UFC you CANNOT kick/knee a downed opponent to certain parts of their anatomy while you are standing. Daley was aiming for his head with his knee, whether it hit or not, its still illegal. That's like saying, oh I may have tried to snap his wrist, but I didn't so its not illegal.
