Dana White thinks Josh Koscheck is a Dick, but has No Beef with him

For as much criticism that UFC president Dana White gets, Dana White doesn’t pretend he is your friend and does not mix his words he tells you straight out where you stand with him at all times. That is the case with Josh Koscheck, White does not pretend to be best friends with the welterweight fighter, but does not play down his skills in the Octagon.

In a recent appearance on the “MMA Hour” with Ariel Helwani, White gave his thoughts on the current number one contender for the welterweight title and did not sugar coat it as usual. White also complimented Koscheck as a fighter for growing since his appearance on the Ultimate Fighter season 1.

“It’s not like me and Koscheck are buddies. Don’t think that Koscheck came out of the Ultimate Fighter and we’re buddies and I’m looking out for Koscheck. I think Koscheck is as much of a dick as anyone else does. We have no beef. It’s — he’s not a team player. His personality — you’re never going get along with Koscheck and hang out and be good buddies with him. Just can’t. He’s not that type of guy. It’s not a bad thing. It’s who he decides to be. It doesn’t mean I can’t do business with him. But I’ll tell you this, I respect Koscheck as a fighter. I think that he’s getting better and better every time he fights. He goes out there and goes after it.”

White also defended his choice to make Koscheck the number one contender for the welterweight title, he also defended his reaction to being hit with an illegal knee by Paul Daley in his recent win.

“To say that Koscheck doesn’t deserve a shot is crazy. Koscheck’s been out there beating guys left and right. A lot of people are judging him on the knee. It’s not like me and Koscheck are best buddies, but who are we to say that Koscheck didn’t get hit with that knee. We’re not in there fighting.”

I know that a lot of people criticized Koscheck for his reaction to Paul Daley’s illegal knee, but it looks like he was hit with an illegal knee by Daley. It just was not when he reacted to it, if you check out the GIF below you will see that Daley actually did hit Koscheck with an illegal knee before they stood up.


I just wanted to set that straight, since I was unable to post it a few weeks ago due to time restrictions.

    Koscheck is going to get steam rolled by GSP when they fight the guy is a dick and he has it coming to him.

    I cant wait to see him saying that he didnt train in his standup or how ever GSP beats him. He deserves it just because he acts like a dick.

    Knee or no knee the truth is that Koscheck is another fighter that has all the tools to be the champion once St.Pierre leaves 170 pounds. He will need the performance of a lifetime to beat him and will need to keep the fight standing somehow and that wont be easy.
