UFC 124 Analysis: Georges St-Pierre vs. Josh Koscheck (Welterweights)?Round 1
Well, you can't really consider that a perfect round for Georges St-Pierre because?for the first time in recent memory?Rush actually abandoned his takedown attempts after Josh Koscheck stuffed a series of them.
Granted, you could also say the champ simply opted to continue out-striking his opponent as a firm left jab was slicing through Kos' defenses almost at will.
It was clearly giving the challenger trouble, opening up a cut under his right eye and causing some massive (and gruesome) swelling around the socket.
Blondie got a nice takedown of his own to close out the round, but it wasn't nearly enough to turn an easy 10-9 round for the Canadian hero.
