UFC NEWS – Mike Pierce Eyes TKO Stoppage Over Koscheck At UFC 143
“Josh Koscheck just seemed like the right guy. He’s a tough guy. He’s fought for the title. I think it will be a good fight, and it could do a lot of things for me in the UFC if I win… From a lot of people’s perspectives, this isn’t a fight that he necessarily wanted. In a lot of people’s eyes, he has a lot to lose in this, and I understand that. For him to take the fight is a good thing for me and I appreciate it, but I don’t think this is one that he was looking forward to taking… I’m going to come out there, press the action, get in his face and keep it that way for three rounds if necessary. I’m definitely looking to TKO him.”
Welterweight fighter, Mike Pierce discusses his upcoming bout with Josh Koscheck and the thought that Koscheck has basically, nothing to gain and everything to lose in the match.
Hinting at the fact that Koscheck may have not wanted the fight, Pierce intends on capitalizing on the opportunity and simultaneously throwing his name in the hat as one of the most deadly men on the planet.
Koscheck is a former title challenger and trains with a stable of top 10 fighters who have helped mold him into a devastating wrestler with a highlight reel of knockouts to his credit, but will any of that matter when he steps opposite Pierce?
Pierce is the same man that almost put away Koscheck training partner, Jon Fitch, in his Octagon debut.
It’s probably considered a long shot, but is anyone giving Pierce a chance in this fight?
