Because Koscheck is coming off of 3 consecutive losses. But, like I said, that's just my opinion.

I agree with this so much man. I really think people don't realize how much they put everything they have into a championship fight. The biggest fight of their life they aren't going to tap, they aren't going to quit, even if they are losing they will hang in there for that small chance that they somehow pull it off. That and GSP isn't an extreme killer.

Only Diaz and Condit are fighters I'd describe as durable.

GSP doesn't have a killer instinct and even if he did I wouldn't bet on him finishing either guy

The division has grown in size and George's opponents aren't nearly as easy for him to finish as the Hughes, Penns, Serras, Triggs, Heirons and Sherks of the world. That is all. Nothing to do with killer instinct.

He sure proved in the Hendricks fight that he was still hungrier than his opponent about keeping his belt when he didn't decide to take round 5 off in order to sing and dance like an idiot instead of going to fight .
He's a tactician and does small things better than most of his opponent . ALL the small things . Same reason Jonathan Toews without scoring over 50 goals like Ovechkin will always be consider better .
