Coaches in MMA, as in all professional sports tend to talk in 'coach-speak' -- cliches strung together to make bland, meaningless sentences. Javier Mendez of the American Kickboxing Academy is a rare exception. He spoke to MMA Junkie about his fighter Josh Koscheck's performance at UFC 124 against Georges St. Pierre

"Josh fought crappy," he said. "He knows it. If we told him he fought great, we'd be lying. He didn't do anything what he was supposed to do, and at the same time, Georges did.

"Josh is similar to what I was like. I never did what my coaches wanted to do; I did what I wanted to do. Some people like to guide themselves, and others like people guiding them. Let's not discount the fact that GSP is a great fighter."
