Alright so anybody who knows me knows I’m heavy into the fight game. I’ve worked around it and I’ve been a fan since I was a kid. This weekends’ bouts are gonna be pretty friggin’ sick. UFC 74 features bouts between Georges St. Pierre facing off against Josh Koscheck, and Randy Couture defending his belt against Gabriel Gonzaga as well as a bout with Roger Huerta. Anyways personal opinion I think GSP is gonna shut down Kos, without a problem and Couture will win if he push the fight hard the first three rounds and have the fight go the distance to five. As his conditioning is crazy. If he decides to stand up with Gonzaga, then good night friends, Couture will have a hard time.
Here’s some notes from the weigh-in from Five ounces of pain:
* Josh Koscheck (170 lbs.) vs. Georges St. Pierre (170 lbs.) – Koscheck got heavy boos and GSP was cheered like a superstar. Koscheck seems to really enjoy the role of bad guy and knows how to needle the crowd. Sanchez even picked Koscheck to win (although he was going back and forth). If Sanchez beats Jon Fitch and GSP wins this match I think the two may end up fighting each other next. The whole Greg Jackson thing will make for an interesting storyline.
* Gabriel Gonzaga (252 lbs.) vs. Randy Couture (228.5 lbs.) – Randy had a ton of definition in his upper body. Much more than in his last fight, in my opinion. Obviously, he received a huge ovation. Gonzaga didn’t get much of a reaction. Probably because fans don’t know whether to hate or like him.
