"Did you say fan? I'm not a fan -- his values and my values are completely different," Koscheck said of Diaz. "He does things that I don't do like smoking pot and I don't associate it with that. I'm not saying it's wrong, but that's just what he does and it's not my thing. I'm not a fan of Nick Diaz, no. It just seems like now in the UFC, if you can talk a good game, you might be able to get a light heavyweight title shot. And if you get suspended for a year, come right back after losing a fight, you get to fight Georges St. Pierre for the title."
Koscheck fights Robbie Lawler at UFC 157, which is set for Feb. 23 in Anaheim, Calif.
"So, maybe I'll just take a couple of months off, do some things I shouldn't do, and maybe I'll get to fight for the title," Koscheck said jokingly. "But, hey, he's in the position now and hopefully he can step up and beat Georges St. Pierre. I highly doubt it -- I believe it's going to be an easy fight for St. Pierre. He'll just take him down, wrestle him and control him like he has everyone else. Georges is going to be there for awhile -- it's going to take a good wrestler who can stop his takedowns and has power in his hands and eventually knock him out."
Diaz received the call to fight for the UFC's welterweight strap at UFC 158, so Koscheck wasn't happy that he was overlooked for a title shot.
Koscheck seems to have conveniently forgotten that St-Pierre already handily beat him at UFC 124 in 2010, making it unlikely the two standout wrestlers will fight each other again.
