UFC News: Josh Koscheck Wants Rory MacDonald
This past weekend in Seattle, Wash., Rory MacDonald battered B.J. Penn, solidifying his status as an elite welterweight. However, Josh Koscheck was not at all impressed and voiced his opinion via Twitter:
@JoshKoscheck Maybe Roy should fight me??? I Doubt the UFC would want to see him get his ass kicked.
In MacDonald’s post-fight press conference, he called out Carlos Condit in hopes of getting his revenge, but a potential Koscheck fight seems very intriguing at this point.
Koscheck would surely test out MacDonald’s wrestling skills, which is something Koscheck might have the advantage in. Also, Koscheck has shown to have knockout power over the years, which would certainly give MacDonald a test in that regard as well.
Koscheck has been a long time staple in the UFC welterweight division and it would be one of MacDonald’s toughest fights to date against one of the most experienced fighters in the welterweight division. Also, MacDonald’s antics during his B.J. Penn fight have rubbed a lot of MMA fans the wrong way. In his bout, MacDonald executedthe Ali shuffle numerous times during the fight.
In the post-fight press conference, he said that it was just a technique in order to confuse Penn. Still, many are not too keen on MacDonald, which makes a Koscheck fight all the more intriguing Maybe Koscheck would be able to derail the hype that surrounds Rory, who wouldn’t challenge George St. Pierre even if he kept his winning streak alive.
Will this fight be booked by Joe Silva? Stay tuned!
