Josh Koscheck signs for Bellator

Post by Rizin=PRIDEFC on Sat Jun 27, 2015 2:02 pm

Josh Koscheck has jumped ship.

The former UFC pay-per-view headliner and The Ultimate Fighter 1 alum has signed with Bellator MMA, it was announced Friday night at Bellator 139.

Koscheck (17-10), one of the biggest "villains" in MMA history, has lost five in a row, the latest against Erick Silva via first-round submission in March. He has not won since a split decision victory over Mike Pierce in 2012.

However, there was a time when Koscheck, 37, was one of the best welterweights in the world. He fought Georges St-Pierre for the UFC 170-pound title in 2010 and owns wins over Matt Hughes, Anthony Johnson and Diego Sanchez.

Koscheck and his managers Bob Cook and DeWayne Zinkin have a long history with Bellator MMA president Scott Coker. The Fresno, Calif., resident still remains a well-known name.

Koscheck is the second former UFC star to sign with Bellator in recent months. Phil Davis penned a deal with the Viacom-owned organization in April.

I know what some will say lost 5 fights and all(and they are right) but I think UFC vet getting destroyed in Bellator is not that bad for brand.

ignoring his record

only big name fight I wanna see him in is vs paul daley.

That said it's just another fighter who's been performing terribly as of late signing with bellaturd....forget his record... he's looked awful. It's not like he's 0-5 in his prime and had bad luck.... he's 36 years old now and he's past it. Wouldnt be surprised if daley beats him by submission Rolling LMAO

I think the bellator dynamite might backfire on them and be very costly to both to have a ring and cage.

this hybrid event is a huge gamble on their part. we'll see.

Unlike UFC ...Bellator cant afford to have a bad event!

How lame that Bellator is using a ring and a cage. The setup will cut into seating for the event and will suck for fans sitting to one side.

On the bright side compared to signing Ken Shamrock the Koscheck move is brilliant.

Do you honestly think viacom enjoy losing money?

they would pull bellator if the ratings got that bad. Viacom care a lot about ad revenue... Dont think for one second Bellator are safe if no one shows up and the ratings suck.

Not that expensive? lol They're losing out on floor seating and it costs money for crew to transport/set up and take down a ring and cage. Would have been far better to just have a ring. cage fighting fans jeez

Same here. If Kos beats Daley then thats a solid win for Kos to get a title shot imo.

hope Kos fucks daley up

Bellator is now has a Masters league. As long as Bellator keeps promoting its own homegrown talent, I don't have too much of a problem with this. But, I am a bit uneasy about having beat up middle-aged men fight each other. They should be retiring and staying retired.

#14 in their WW div (#1 in terms of name power). Great signing. They should have him fight Cisneros for his first fight.
