There aren't many silver linings to this obliteration of a black cloud looming over Josh Koscheck's head, but he does seem to have an answer for the UFC Welterweight Champion's heretofore unsolved takedown offense.

Since GSP registered a successful one in the opening moments of the first round, the challenger has been able to turn the king away from his favorite technique including another in the third round. To this point, it hasn't mattered because Rush continues to pick Kos apart on the feet (as he did in the third), but it bears mentioning.

Minutes 10 through 15 weren't quite as emphatic for St-Pierre, but the left jab was still effective and some blistering leg kicks started to draw figurative blood. Call it a third straight 10-9 round for the champ.
