Think of our MMA loving community as a ginormous global high school of sorts and suddenly Twitter becomes the vehicle that the students exploit to start spreading news and rumors. The rest of the Internet based media such as ourselves become the bathrooms and hallways where the gossip fiending students congregate to get their fill of these juicy rumors, smoke cigarettes and have impromptu random make out sessions. Actually that’s wrong, I don’t even think high school kids sneak cigarette breaks anymore, they have progressed to things like lunchtime ‘pharm parties’ and alcohol infused tampon insertion. You have got to give them props for their creativity.
The MMA hallways have been buzzing for weeks about a potential matchup between Josh Koscheck and Carlos Condit following the whole GSP vs Carlos Condit was scrapped due to GSP suffering a training camp injury. Well, now according to this picture of the ‘Official Bout Agreement’ tweeted by Josh Koscheck late last night, this fight is officially, official:
This is probably a fight we should all get pretty excited about. Kos was out for nearly 12 months and came back with a very impressive KO win over Matt Hughes at the end of September and Carlos Condit is probably brewing a small bit of anger inside at having his title shot pulled out from under his nose. It goes down February 4, 2012 at UFC 143.
