    I hope Koscheck doesn’t suffer from any long term sight or bone damage. This is the second time (or probably more) that he’s had the right side of his face screwed up.

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Maybe he should switch to orthodox stance instead to reduce the chances of breaking his orbital bone anymore. Damn, GSP ruined him.

      • SARCASTIC says:

        GSP ruin him? Not possible since most say that he can’t finish fights… How could he finish someones career? lol

        Poor Koscheck will have something to remember for all the BS he talked about before loosing feeling in half his face for the rest of him life.

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          I’ve never had any of these but I think a broken jaw, orbital bone, damaged knees can ruin your career regardless whether or not GSP can finish a fight. This is the second time he’s broken it.

  2. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Indefinite suspension for an eye poke? The Three Stooges get poked in the eye all the time, walk it off.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      I find it kind of fishy somone like Koscheck who is known for poking everyone in eye just happened to poke Hendricks 5 seconds into the fight. Shitty ass ref must have had his head up his ass to miss that or he was a koscheck fan

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Idk what the ref was looking at. If Kos would jab instead of palm his opponents heads, he would have less eye pokes and more decisive victories.This ref is still better than that woman in strikeforce. Winslow I think.. WTH happened to Mario Yamasaki? I don’t think I’ve seen him since the Erik Silva controversy.

  3. Nuitari X says:

    Jim miller….suspended indefinitely pending CT scans for a broken heart and tongue bitten in half also 30 days for a tough ass fight.

  4. A.James says:

    Dodson is a cheat.

  5. Filthy rotten rousey says:

    George st Pierre’s jab will forever haunt the face of josh koscheck. Some may say he doesn’t go for the finish but I would argue that it would have been better for koschecks career had he been knocked out rather than have his eye turned into the worlds tightest vagina.

  6. GreenTeaBagger says:

    Oh that Kos has ninja moves…he very unrucky…very unrucky.

  7. ganjaneerUSMC says:

    Don’t know how far his skills will take him but mr lavar johnson is no joke. And barrys one of my favorite fighters. Would like to see johnson and carwin go at it, i see carwin stopping him in the first, but would still be a good scrap.
