Good to see that UFC star Chael Sonnen got his suspension cut in half. Heard the hearing was a joke. Between athletic commissions run by government appointees who are, at times, totally unqualified for their roles and the wacky judging of some MMA fights there is never a dull moment in the ever growing sport of MMA. Sonnen needs a solid fight and obviously a win to get back to the rematch phase with Anderson Silva in my opinion. In my opinion, Sonnen not having a fight prior to fighting Anderson Silva would be a strategic mistake. How's this for a fantasy scenario, GSP beats the holy hell out of Josh Koscheck for three rounds and then in the 4th round in Montreal GSP is severely cut, the fight is stopped and Koshcheck leaves Quebec with the hometown hero's title and more angst than a serial killer? For that rematch, one would be printing money.....oh, I forgot, MMA 'purists' aren't wild about 'rematches.' My bad. Yeah, I get it MMA crazies, this isn't pro wrestling but, remember, that I did include the term 'fantasy.'

Jim Ross, speaking like a typical fan who doesn't care about performers abusing PEDs, despite knowing the health consequences of such decisions better than most, is glad that Sonnen has had his suspension reduced, so he can get back to watching him fight in marquee matches ASAP. Hey, I've got a brilliant idea, maybe Sonnen should hire Ross to be his manager? It would be a match made in heaven. All Ross would have to do is rehash the same shady spin he used to defend WWE from media criticism after the Benoit tragedy like: "This is not a steroid issue. That horse has got to be put in the barn and unsaddled.". If that wasn't bad enough, Ross wants to see a Montreal screwjob blood stoppage finish where Josh Koscheck steals the title from GSP at UFC 124. Just think, the rematch could be hot enough to sell out UFC's first ever Dome show at the Rogers Centre in Toronto on April 30th, 2011. Hey, why stop there, maybe you could have Dana White pay off referee Herb Dean to ring the f*cking bell as soon as the first drop of blood trickles from GSP's face. Then you could book the corrupt owner against the Canadian blue collar hero in a boxing match. At least that would be original booking in MMA.

Yes...I plan to watch GSP vs. Koscheck, the Ric Flair of UFC, and I feel that St. Pierre will win a rugged fight in GSP's hometown of Montreal. If Koscheck does upset GSP in Montreal, it will be as big a loss as I can recall in a fighter's home town ever in UFC. Koscheck has done an amazing job of selling his villain persona on TUF on Spike notwithstanding that no one should think that Josh is more sizzle than steak. This will be a nasty, emotional, tough fight.

Dear Mr Ross, just because you keep repeating something ad nauseum doesn't make it true. I'm surprised he stopped there and didn't call GSP the Bret Hart of UFC. At least that would have been more accurate.

Is Josh Koscheck the 'Ric Flair of MMA?' Could be I suppose and I perceive that to be a good thing if that's what some fans think of Koscheck. He's a talented guy with a strong personality who knows that he needs to strike a nerve here and there to properly market himself and sell his fights. Some MMA purists are reluctant to see MMA fighters promote their fights that at times resemble a pro wrestling promo but if the fighters are organic and stay real then I think that it's great. Plus, the better the PPV's produce equates to a bigger payday for a fighter in a game where the number of main event level, big pay day fights are limited by the nature of the Octagon beast.

Jim Ross talks about Josh Koscheck being MMA's version of Ric Flair. Maybe in the fact that he draws a strong reaction out of people but nothing else. Flair can cut a hell of a promo while Kos tends to stumble across his words at times.
