When UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 reaches its climax at the Bell Centre in Montreal, we'll finally have an answer to a question that's been burning for months now. Namely, whether Josh Koscheck's approach to his title fight with UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was deviously brilliant or delusionally stupid.
Not since Chael Sonnen repeatedly poked the hornet's nest otherwise known as UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has a challenger so brazenly and mirthfully put himself in harm's way.
Kos used his spin on The Ultimate Fighter to wage a personal battle against common sense and GSP's psyche. It may or may not be a factor, but Blondie definitely got St-Pierre's attention.
Whether the ploy was effective or whether angering one of the most dominant champs in the sport's history is as bad an idea in practice as it looks on paper remains to be seen.
Until then, we've got some interesting appetizers to discuss.
