I Guess Josh Koscheck Didn't Learn Anything From The Paulo Thiago Fight?

New, 11 comments

He announced that he'll be fighting Mike Pierce at Ultimate Fight Night 20 on January 11th via his Twitter account:

Fighting January 11 2010 spike tv vs Mike Pierce UFN 20 Like I said don't care who I fight or where just get me someone who wants to fight

Now, I respect a guy that just likes to fight and put on a good show and what not.  However, when you are in someone like Koscheck's position, you can't just accept any fight.  Mike Pierce isn't a bad fighter at all.  In fact, he just upset the insanely tough Brock Larson at Ultimate Fight Night 19.  However, beating Pierce doesn't really do anything for Koscheck besides put a little extra money in his pocket.  A loss in this fight would be a huge blow to him.  It would be the second time within a year that he's fought and lost to a relative unknown fighter.  However, Koscheck also tweeted this:

Bad news! Not fighting matt Hughes :( but the good news is.... I'll be wipping GSP's ass real soon!!

So does Koscheck get another shot at GSP with a win over Pierce?
