Dominate UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre talked about his upcoming opponent, and TUF 12 adversary. St-Pierre explains that the arrogance of Josh Koscheck has angered him, but says this will only fuel him in their upcoming fight at the end of the year. Do you guys believe this is a good thing or is this to Koscheck’s advantage as we saw in his last fight against Paul Daley?
“He’s definitely gotten into my head, which is a good thing for me,” St-Pierre said during this week’s conference call. “If you look at all the guys that I’ve fought in the past that have been very arrogant with me, I did very well.
“So it will give me more motivation to train hard, and [I’ll] always think about the scenario in my head. When it is time to fight, I will have done my homework.”
While the soft-spoken champ has been more amused than offended with most of Koscheck’s comments, the French-Canadian refused to let his talkative challenger slide when he blatantly lied on the media call.
“That’s not true. He’s not happy at all,” St-Pierre stated after Kos claimed to be ecstatic over fighting in GSP’s backyard of Montreal.
What about St-Pierre’s squeaky clean image, is that too good to be true?
“He comes across different than what he is in person,” Koscheck said.
“That’s not true at all,” St-Pierre strenuously objected. “I’m not a fake person and you’re going to see on TUF 12 that it’s not true at all. I never derailed from the person that I believe I am and for what I stand for.”
