Georges St-Pierre posted his fifth consecutive convincing 170-pound title defense Saturday at UFC 124. Following GSP’s eighth straight win overall, including two unanimous decisions over Josh Koshceck, company president Dana White appears to be at a loss for words when it comes to Kos’ future in the division.
With a 0-2 record against the top welterweight in the game, there’s no reason for the boss to put Koscheck back into the cage with St-Pierre anytime soon – if ever.
“It leaves Koscheck in a real bad position in the welterweight division, unless somebody else beats Georges St. Pierre,” White told reporters after UFC 124. “Georges dominated him twice.
“Georges said it to him at the press conference and he was right. He would have had to beat him [at UFC 124] to ever have a chance [at a trilogy].”
The American Kickboxing Academy fighter now finds himself in a no-win situation. GSP doesn’t appear ready to abandon his strap anytime soon, which means it’s back to the drawing board for the TUF alum.
While he was the last man to steal a round from the champ during their contest in August 2007, Saturday’s victory proved the gap between the division’s G.O.A.T. and the field has never been wider.
Koscheck had won three straight bouts heading into his much deserved title shot against St-Pierre, but the controversial wrestler left the Bell Centre empty handed as a record 23,152 Canadians rejoiced.
