    Kos probably has the IQ of a 4th grader and the maturity of a 2nd grader. The guy is borderline retarded.

Tate obviously didn't want to press charges and i'm sure hes happy he was on TV and has a shit ton of free tap out gear. Everyone needs to remember this is a reality show...and settle down...
    I'll only disagree with you on one point...I'm sure somewhere out there, there is someone who would sacrifice their body to talking trash to a pro fighter on the street in hopes that the pro fighter would beat the hell out of them, just so they could get a good payday. Then the only question to that is....who's the bigger idiot? The jerk for taunting the fighter and getting beat up for easy cash or the pro fighter for falling for it and giving in to their emotions?

    This is America, and in this country we have free speech rights; which include the right to be an asshole. If a person has the balls to walk up to Brock Lesnar on the street and start talking trash to him and his wife, then Brock beats them down, Brock is the one that is legally in the wrong and will be punsihed in a court of law for it, not the asshole trash talker.

    Not trying to start a fight but I think your definition of "free speech" is a little off. That being said I mostly agree with your statement.

    You certainly have the right to an opinion and a voice but when that voice is abusive or hateful the line gets drawn.

    In this case I feel that obviously both are in the wrong. I am of the belief that if you dont want to be bitten dont poke an animal but that doesnt excuse physical abuse. The whole situation should have been more professional and respectful and nothing ever would have happened.

What we saw on Wednesday night's episode of The Ultimate Fighter was Koscheck physically assaulting Brad Tate, then making snarky comments instead of actually apologizing. It turns out that a lot of important footage landed on the cutting room floor.

    In the video above, we see that Brad Tate wasn't just taunting Kos — he was also mocking the accents of the yellow-team Armenians. The fact that Tate was attacking his guys was what really set Josh off. Koscheck actually does make a heartfelt one-on-one apology to Brad, which ends with their beef getting thoroughly squashed. Before that even happens, Kos advises his team not to start any more trouble with Tate: "When you see him tomorrow, don't say one word. Kill 'em with kindness. Let me stand up for you guys. Let me look like the bad guy." It's a moment that would have swayed sympathy toward Koscheck if it were included in the episode — unfortunately, it wouldn't have fit into the show's perfect Kos-as-heel narrative."

    Josh elaborates on his run ins with Tate. I guess in the Kyle Watson blog you get some background on him too.

    Apparently Josh claims that Tate recently tried to hide a spy cam in whatever gym the Aftermath is filmed in....sounds like BS, but who knows.

    I can't believe Josh was that stupid....even in the Aftermath show, he still comes off like a douche and a bully....he even talks about after he knocks out George St Pierre, he is going to french kiss him or cuddle up to him on the ground while GSP is sleeping.

    I also can't believe that Stevens is still cocky about his skills after his second guillotine in a row...and he even says he talks with Wilkinson after and he said he barely had it, and Stevens felt him letting up, but Stevens gassed. He still thinks he is more skilled than the rest and his only self admitted problem was his weight cut and gas tank.

    Stevens is an absolute bum. To get caught with the same choke twice? Man way overhyped. Dane should have gotten that shot. I don't care what kind of skills the guy has on paper no way he should get a wildcard spot if he got submitted in under 20 seconds.

    kos should be fired for punching a contestant in the face for no reason

    Laughed my ass off when Stevens got submitted the 2nd time by the same damn choke. Way to overhype a fighter Dana
    And what comes to Koscheck.. Really Josh, is that male nurse the only damn thing you can come up with? And the minute that medic actually trashtalks back he looses it. Really good pr for the sport...

    Edit: Oh and pulling down someone's pants, sigh. Is Josh 10 years old?
