Georges St. Pierre faced Josh Koscheck for the second time in these welterweights’ careers at the UFC 124 event which took place on December 11, 2010 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Prior to the fight the two met as coaches of fight reality TV series TUF season 12. This fight was preceded by a lot of hyping from Josh Koscheck’s side, as he was trying to get under the skin of as always genteel and self-contained champion GSP. Georges St. Pierre is known as a fighter who takes little risks, studies his opponents’ style very carefully and is able to apply shrewd tactics to beat his competitor in their own game. During the five round bout GSP completely outclassed Koscheck, endlessly jabing the challenger with the left hand to the point where his eye got completely swallowed and sustained the fracture of orbital bone, thus once again proving that the talking done in the cage is the talking that counts.
This fight was George’s eighth consecutive win and the seventh successful defence of UFC welterweight champion title. After it he went on to defeat Jake Shields and is now set to meet Nick Diaz in UFC 137.
