GSP at -425 odds offers very little betting value. Expect GSP to win as he is better on the ground and the stand up. Koscheck stays he has improved his ground game and stand up and will be better prepared for a huge upset. GSP as usual has brought in a top level camp with Olympic level wrestlers. More importantly, GSP has been working with famed coach Freddie Roach on his striking. Freddie predicts a KO by GSP. I believe Koscheck will have a fight game plan that will try to strike with GSP. Freddy sees a whole in Kos striking defense where GSP can take advantage. Take the UNDER 22.5 (-135) Minutes.
