Josh Koscheck created quite the stir during this week’s edition of “The Ultimate Fighter 12.” After exchanging a few insults with Tate, the male paramedic who Kos constantly badgered for being a “male nurse,” Koscheck laid his hands on the unsuspecting medical technician after he claimed Tate took things too far.
A minor melee ensued and the two were separated. Although Spike TV producers opted to cut out what happened after the altercation in the television broadcast, they released Koscheck’s apology on their website early this morning.
In Wednesday’s episode, the two were sitting within earshot of each other after Koscheck had just pants’d Tate in front of cameras. After a couple more ‘murse’ references, Tate fired back at the welterweight top contender by mocking Koschek’s propensity to over exaggerate questionable shots to the face during his fights.
Many, including UFC president Dana White, have accused the controversial wrestler of faking multiple illegal strikes in his bouts after replays showed the hits appeared clean.
While that diss seemed to be the final straw, in the unseen footage, the American Kickboxing Academy fighter claims what set him off was when Tate shifted his focus from Koscheck to his protégés.
