UFC 124 Fight Card: Results, Reaction To the Night's Fights
If you can wait any longer for this card to go down, you're a way more patient person than I am.
Ever since Josh Koscheck scored a Unanimous Decision over Paul "Semtex" Daley at UFC 113 in Montreal, the flames of hatred have been fanned like never before.
Koscheck beat Daley and after predicting that the Montreal Canadiens were going to lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Kos gave UFC President and perennial Twitterholic Dana White something to work with for the hype video by saying he was going to beat UFC Welterweight Champ Georges "Rush" St-Pierre, so Montreal would have two losses to cope with before plugging his afterparty.
GSP usually never likes to say, "I'm going to beat his ass" to anyone, but at the weigh-ins last night, he said just that.
Now the stage is set for what could be the most hyped up fight of either man's career so far.
In addition to this grudge fight for Welterweight Supremacy, Stefan "Skyscaper" Struve will look to shut Sean "Big Sexy" McCorkle up in a Heavyweight bout.
The original Welterweight winner of The Ultimate Fighter, Joe "Daddy" Stevenson will make his long-awaited return to the Octagon after a long layoff, but Season Six Welterweight winner Mac Danzig will unquestionably be hungry to live to fight in the UFC for one more fight—even if doing so means spoiling Daddy's return to UFC action in the hometown of the former UFC Lightweight contender's fellow Greg Jackson training ally.
Jim Miller is on a five fight win streak in the UFC, but before he can stake a claim towards the UFC Lightweight title and a possible rematch with either Gray "The Bully" Maynard or Frankie "The Answer" Edgar, he has to snap the unbeaten streak of submission machine Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira.
Finally, Thiago "Pitbull" Alves has made weight and looks great having reached 171 in what will be his second fight back in the UFC since the corrective surgery he had to fix the arteriovenous malformation in his brain, which put his long-anticipated rematch with Jon Fitch on the shelf for a while.
That said, Alves will have a hell of a war on his hands when he faces John "Doomsday" Howard in what could either be a bout much like every other bout Alves has had against wrestlers not named Josh Koscheck or Matt Hughes, or a bout that could start on the feet and end with either a Knockout of The Night candidate or a Fight of the Night candidate.
