The rematch between light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida and challenger Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will headline UFC 113, but it’s the co-main event that will likely grab all the headlines leading up to Saturday night’s pay-per-view broadcast.
For all of the mutual respect the Brazilians are showing towards one another, welterweights Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley haven’t stopped talking trash since the pivotal welterweight contest was announced a few months back.
“For whatever reason, people like to latch on to the fact that Koscheck’s eye is a little [expletive] up and he looks a little bit like a Fraggle [Rock],” Daley said of Koscheck during a recent UFC 113 media call.
The Brit took their beef a step further by starting a photoshop contest on the Internet to see who could make his opponent look the silliest.
The beef if real and the stakes are even higher.
UFC 113 jumps off this Saturday in Montreal, Canada. As always, FightLine.com will have live coverage of the event.
