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

josh-koscheck-2


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.

    I’d be more than ok with never seeing him again. Between his gay hair, painted toenails, and huge ego, let him just go away. The guys a complete douchebag.

    Good he needs to retire. Biggest faker in all of MMA. Good riddance, had a lot of talent and wasted it on drama instead of focus

    Good he had a terrible showing and with his ego he’s probably butt hurt and wants to retire. Just as bad as crying to his mommy.

    Considering he dropped his last three fights in a row, and four of six, I’d say he’s beating Dana to the punch before he gets let go. A little uneasy to hear Dana sing his praises…The dude brought “the flop” to MMA.

    Josh may be an asshole but he is a smart fighter. Just hit his hump already and it’s time for him to enjoy his life. Much respect for him and his career.

    Dana Never messes with a guy who wants to retire. What a hypocrite

    If Dana really thinks you should retire if your thinking about it, then why won’t he get off GSP’s back?

    Sounds like he is lacking the fire, I didn’t get to see the fights, but losing 3 in a row, especially to Lawler.. Hmm, he might just be done.. Lawler has changed alot though, he use to be like Leban, not anymore..

    Asshole or not, he was a tough SOB. In his prime he would’ve schooled that boy. If he’s done, then congrats on a great career. Go enjoy it

    About time he retired washed up

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000771005205 Cory Richardson

    Its great to see fighters change styles or approaches during their career, but I would like to see him try his wrestling full on one more fight at least. The guy has one of the best shots in MMA even still, why box so much?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002296926404 Oh When

    ufc wont be the same without kos

    :(

  • Jon

    Ok First GSP is a current champion hence why Dana won’t let him retire . As for kos mma takes a tremendous amount out of your body and I’m willing to bet all the people making negitive comments have never done mma so until you do stfu I’m an mma fighter I know what they go through

  • Anthony S. Garrone

    I think Josh should take a vacation then come back and see if he can still fight.
