Posts Tagged ‘Welterweight’

Despite losing five in a row, Josh Koscheck isn’t ready to call it quits on his MMA career.

On Friday, it was revealed that the former UFC welterweight title challenger had signed with Bellator MMA. Scott Coker, Bellator MMA President, announced the signing via Twitter.



At 37 years old, Koscheck spent almost his entire career inside the Octagon. Following an appearance on The Ultimate Fighter 1, in which he was eliminated by Diego Sanchez, Koscheck made his official UFC debut opposite Chris Sanford in April 2005.

Koscheck went on to pick up 15 UFC victories, beating Matt Hughes, Sanchez, Frank Trigg, Anthony Johnson and others. With a May 2010 win over Paul Daley, Koscheck earned a shot at then-champion Georges St-Pierre, but he was jabbed into oblivion by the Canadian and failed to capture the belt.

The last time Koscheck had his hand raised was in a split decision against Mike Pierce at UFC 143 in February 2012. As he has slowly faded out of title contention since then, many figured Koscheck would soon retire as a UFC fighter. However, Bellator MMA has clearly made it worth Koscheck‘s while to continue competing outside the Octagon.



Most big-name welterweights are competing under the UFC banner these days, but there is one glaring potential matchup for Koscheck within the Bellator MMA roster. In typical Koscheck fashion, the UFC veteran didn’t waste any time making his desired opponent known via a post on his Instagram account.

Only thing I want to do next…is b—h slap Paul Daley one more time!! Remember the ass kickin‘ I gave you?!!

So, it’s pretty clear who the top option is to welcome Koscheck to Bellator MMA. However, there are a couple other choices that could make sense for Koscheck.

Here are the most likely potential bouts to be booked for Koscheck‘s first MMA appearance outside the Octagon since an April 2004 showing against Luke Cummo at Ring of Combat 6.


Paul Daley vs. Dennis Olson Winner

At UFC 113, Koscheck and Daley met in a clash between two of the more potent trash talkers in the 170-pound division.

Predictably, Koscheck used his wrestling to control Daley on the ground en route to a decision win. Frustrated with his inability to stand in the bout, Daley threw a punch at Koscheck well after the final horn had already sounded.

Following Daley’s regrettable decision, he was permanently banned from the UFC and has since competed for several promotions such as Strikeforce and Bellator MMA. Aside from an exciting bout with Nick Diaz in April 2011, though, Daley has really been flying under the radar.

Having a rematch with Koscheck would be an excellent way for Daley to get back into the spotlight and show that he has improved.

Before that can happen, though, Daley would probably need to beat upcoming opponent Dennis Olson. Daley and Olson are set to meet at Bellator 140 in July, and wouldn’t it be something for Koscheck to enter the cage after a Daley win?


Michael Page vs. Rudy Bears

It’s less likely, but Bellator MMA may also look to use Koscheck to build up its up-and-coming welterweights right away.

Should that be the case, there might not be a more highly regarded prospect under the Bellator MMA banner than Michael Page. Fellow welterweight Chris Honeycutt is also receiving a good amount of attention, but he’s unlikely to compete against Koscheck because they train together.

Also at Bellator 140, Page will meet Rudy Bears. If he wins in impressive fashion and Daley loses or runs into injury problems, there’s a chance Page could fall into a great opportunity to elevate his standing against Koscheck.

Personally, I am more intrigued by Koscheck‘s matchups with wrestlers and would have been ecstatic about his Bellator MMA signing had Ben Askren still been with the promotion. However, the 170-pound class in Bellator MMA is very much a striking division at the moment.

So, Koscheck may be forced to go back to his wrestling roots in either of the two most likely bouts he has waiting for him in his new organization.

Kelvin Gastelum was impressive at UFC 188, roughing up former UFC title contender and former Strikeforce champ Nate Marquardt. Unfortunately, while he was hoping that the fight with Marquardt would be a one-night stand at middleweight, UFC President Dana White insisted he was at 185 pounds to stay.

“I honestly do not believe he can make 170,” said White at the UFC 188 post-fight press conference (via MMAJunkie.com). “He has done nothing to prove he can make 170 pounds, and when he doesn’t make 170 pounds, it’s dangerous and it screws a lot of things up around here.”

After winning The Ultimate Fighter season 17, Gastelum dropped down to welterweight and quickly established himself as a high-level talent, posting four wins in a row over the likes of Rick Story and Jake Ellenberger. Unfortunately, Gastelum consistently struggled to make the 170-pound weight limit, repeatedly needing do-overs at the scales or outright missing weight.

The last straw came at UFC 183 when Gastelum came in 10 pounds heavy for a fight with Tyron Woodley. While Woodley agreed to face a near-middleweight, Gastelum still came up short on the scorecards, dropping a split decision.

The UFC is, of course, somewhat wise to keep Gastelum away from the welterweight division. Had Gastelum received one more point on the judges’ scorecards, he would have forced his way into the welterweight title picture, putting the UFC in a risky position where it either has to deny him a title shot or roll the dice on him being able to make 170 pounds.

The promotion went through a similar issue with John Lineker, who missed weight in four of his eight flyweight bouts but successfully knocked off potential contenders like Yasuhiro Urushitani and Ian McCall out of the title running. That said, Henry Cejudo was also forced to take a bantamweight fight after pulling out of UFC 177, but he returned to flyweight immediately after.

White cracked the door open for a potential return to 170-pounds, but was highly critical of the idea. “He’s going to have to get serious and get a nutritionist,” he said. “He had to cut to make 185, and he came in right on the nose, so I am the furthest from confident that he is capable of making 170.”

Gastelum, for his part, seemed accepting (but visibly unenthusiastic) about staying at 185 pounds for the time being, saying that “actions speak louder than words. Now that he said I need to prove it, I am going to prove it.”

It is unclear what happens with Gastelum from here, but it is almost certain that he will remain a middleweight for the time being. Look for a fight announcement for Gastelum over the coming months.
