    People underestimate how much wrestling changes when both guys are expecting to wrestle and nothing else.

    Koscheck has competed like that professionally at least dozens of times against the best of the best. Has GSP? No.

    canada's olympic wrestling team is not nearly as competitive as the usa. and do you know for fact that koscheck has never been invited to work out or try out for team usa wrestling? or are you just going by the fact you never heard of such an offer?

    I think Koscheck knows that GSP's wrestling is superior or else he would not have stood there for 5 rounds without trying to take him down.

    I know JK is a great career wrestler, but GSP has more strenght & quickness IMO.

    At this level, if Koscheck could have dominated GSP by using more wrestling, he would have done it.

    edit - JK did have great takedown defense though.

    I suppose at least one of these assholes will say GSP has better boxing than Mayweather as well.

    I don't really understand the evidence people are using to claim that Koscheck outwrestled him last fight. It seems you're saying 'because GSP didn't completely and utterly dominate him wrestling, Koscheck is the better wrester".

    Rewatch Koscheck/Alves and see how pathetic and amateur Koscheck's handfighting was before you start saying he's a better wrestler than GSP. That was some highschool level stuff

    Never really get the point of these debates though, Koscheck is probably a better pure wrestler - we'll never actually know, but since GSP never actually wrestled I'm willing to concede that - but GSP uses his wrestling more effectively in an MMA context
