Saint Pierre won back then by unanimous decision, Judges scored the bout 29-28, 29-28, and 30-27. That fight was for the number one welterweight contender position. Stakes are higher now, since this fight is for the UFC welterweight championship. Saint Pierre is from Montreal, so crowd may not be silent. It’s going to be blast!
Both fighters have improved their game in every level for past three years. GSP has actually gone those years undefeated. Biggest triumph of he’s winning streak took place in UFC 83, when he won Matt Serra in a rematch, and reclaimed his welterweight title. Serra gave UFC fans a big surprise by knocking lights out of GSP in UFC 69. Josh Koscheck has been fighting eight times since the last clash with GSP, and got beaten by two Brazilians, Thiago Alves in UFC 90 and Paulo Thiago UFC 95. However Koscheck has now 3 wins under he’s belt, and is on a streak after beating Frank Trigg, Anthony Johnson and Paul Daley. Whatever happens, two things are guaranteed: Top quality entertainment and some serious ass-kicking!
