Koscheck's Trainer Javier Mendez Says He Fought Crappy At UFC 124

Javier Mendez, one of the head trainers at the American Kickboxing Academy that is home to Josh Koscheck, gave his thoughts on his students performance this past weekend at UFC 124 in his welterweight title fight against champ, Georges St. Pierre:

“Josh fought crappy,” he said. “He knows it. If we told him he fought great, we'd be lying. He didn't do anything what he was supposed to do, and at the same time, Georges did.

“Josh is similar to what I was like. I never did what my coaches wanted to do; I did what I wanted to do. Some people like to guide themselves, and others like people guiding them. Let's not discount the fact that GSP is a great fighter.”
