Paulo Thiago picks Josh Koscheck to defeat Georges St. Pierre for welterweight title

UFC welterweight, Paulo Thiago has been giving his opinion on the upcoming fight between Josh Koscheck and weltwerweight champion, Georges St. Pierre, stating that Kos will be hard to finish and might even pull off the win.

Thiago, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“Not at all, Koscheck has a much bigger name than me and deserves this opportunity more than me . He already made history long ago, he has several victories against tough guys, and it will be hard for Georges St. Pierre to stop him. He comes into the fight with a chance of winning.”

“I think Koscheck is better at stand up than St. Pierre and is as good as him in wrestling … I think the jiu-jitsu is going to define the fight. Perhaps someone will catch someone … I think Koscheck has a chance, as well as some tricks for Georges and he is more aggressive trading [punches].”
