Josh Koscheck is not hard to find nowadays as are his upcoming fights that are much talked about.


He had signed on with Bellator, which occurred last summer. However, fights with this company are yet to come on as Koscheck has announced his intention to fight Paul Daley. It would be a rematch of their first match. Fans would certainly be excited with the prospect of seeing a rematch of a fight that had originally taken in 2010.

Brandao says Jose Aldo will finish McGregor

Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Featherweight fighter Diego Brandao has predicted a stunning defeat for Conor McGregor at the hands of reigning UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo which will all but shatter his dreams of becoming world champion. Moreover, he has also offered the Irishman the chance of a rematch against him if and when the Brazilian ends his world title hopes.

The Brazilian will return to the cage this week, almost a year since his own spectacular defeat at the hands of Irishman at UFC Dublin but despite that humbling, he is up for another fight and wants to even up the scores against the Dubliner.

According to Brandao, he cannot wait for the match between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo, adding that his compatriot will take the match and he hopes that McGregor will give him a rematch after he gets beaten. He added that McGregor has no idea how to approach a five round duel, mentioning that he was not trained when the two of them met.

But instead of making excuses, Brandao said that the world will now find out that the Irishman is not all that he says he is. He mentioned that he did not get inside his head and he just wasn’t there mentally for the fight. However, McGregor still won the fight and the Brazilian hailed his achievements and he says he has deserved his shot at the title, but everyone will find out that he is something entirely different.

Josh Koscheck suffers yet another defeat

Jake Ellenberger racked up a much needed win at UFC 184 to maintain his relevance as a top Welterweight contender by submitting former divisional top dog Josh Koscheck in the second round at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Both the fighters entered the fight on the back of a losing streak of three fights and eager to snap that unwanted streak. Koscheck, meanwhile, entered the cage for the fight for the first time in 15 months after taking a sabbatical from the sport in order to reassess his career and his goals.

And it was Koscheck who came out the more aggressive of the two landing some hard punches on the Juggernaut but that was not enough to keep Ellenberger down and pretty soon, he managed to take control of things.

Josh Koscheck was having trouble seeing with his left eye during the second round and he kept wiping it and Ellenberger sensed an opportunity there to submit him with a north-south choke, which he did brilliantly.
