Welterweight Josh Koscheck is living proof that the eye-to-fist defense is highly ineffective. After getting jabbed to death in the biggest contest of his controversial career, the wrestler posted a picture of the broken right orbital bone he received in the 1stRound of his UFC 124 loss to champion Georges St-Pierre.
“In Boston 2have my Broken orbital bone fixed. Then home 2 recover & spend some x with family. I want to say thx’s 4 all the love last night!” Koscheck tweeted late Sunday evening. “Enjoy this picture. Boom son.”
ESPN reported Sunday afternoon Koscheck and coach Bob Cook would drive from Montreal to Beantown to have his broken bone operated on early this week. Cook said his client fought the final four rounds of last night’s main event with a busted right eye, which was almost sealed completely shut for the better part of their 25-minute affair.
The American Kickboxing Academy amigos were hoping to have the procedure done once they touched down in San Jose, California, but an air pocket formed behind the broken bone that made air travel dangerous.
According to the ‘Worldwide Leader in Sports,’ Octagon officials flipped the bill for the rental car.
UFC 124 took place inside the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Although St-Pierre tried valiantly to end Koscheck’s evening early, he was unable to keep the three judges sitting Octagon-side from getting involved in the action. The planet’s baddest welterweight was forced to settle for his third straight lopsided unanimous decision victory.
