Josh Koscheck Sends “Huge Text” To Dana White, May Retire

Long time UFC contender Josh Koscheck suffered a knockout loss to Tyron Woodley at UFC 167 and following the fight, the TUF 1 participant sent UFC President Dana White a long winded text that according to the boss, may have been a retirement.

White talked about it during the post fight press conference.

“Josh sent me a huge text and his text sounded a little bit like retirement, which I don’t ever mess with guys when they’re talking about retirement. But it might be a little premature for Josh,” said White. “I think Josh is still one of the most talented guys out there. He fought a beast who was ready to go tonight and Josh hurt him tonight. Josh hurt him.”

“The thing about retirement…this isn’t baseball…this is fighting. This is where you go in against guys who are mean, nasty, and hungry. If retiring even crosses your mind, you should retire.”

“I’ve got to talk to him and see if that was a retirement that he was sending me.”

White also complimented and praised Koscheck’s fighting style and what he brings to the promotion:

I love Koscheck. I love that kid. I love the way he fights. I love his attitude. The guy gets booed out of the arena every time he comes in, but he still goes in and fights his ass off, and he’s a tough kid. When you’re standing in the Octagon, and you’re looking across, and Josh is standing there you know you’re in for a tough fight.
