UFC 124 is about to begin. I jump into my car and race off to the local sports bar. Tonight, we will be at Buffalo Wild Wings watching free UFC PPV on their televisions. Grab a beer, grab some wings and enjoy the fun. Georges St-Pierre vs. Josh Koscheck should be a good one.
The Results: Georges St-Pierre was just too much for Josh Koscheck at UFC 124. GSP schooled Koscheck in all five rounds of their Welterweight championship match. Georges St-Pierre wins the match easily 50-45 to retain his UFC Welterweight Championship. Josh Koscheck will have to go back to the drawing board. Who says nice guys finish last? Georges St-Pierre is one of the nicest MMA fighters out of the ring, but when the bell rings, GSP comes out swinging, kicking and throwing elbows. Georges St-Pierre gave Koshcheck a black swollen right eye in the first round and finished it off with four more dominating rounds. GSP was just too good for Koscheck. Dana White told Koscheck this was his last chance against Georges St-Pierre. He better hope Jake Shields or John Fitch beat the champion if he wants another shot at the Welterweight crown. Great job Georges St-Pierre, you fought a great fight at UFC 124 in Montreal, Canada
