    In a recent interview, top UFC Welterweight Josh Koscheck made some controversial comments about fellow 170 pounder Matt Hughes. The quote is from an interview over at FistFirstFighting.com where he says "[Matt Hughes] has no speed or athletic ability because he's white."

    Koscheck riled up some people with the statement which prompted him to respond to the controversy on his official website, KosMMA.com:

    "Racist" Comment

    Aug 21, 2007

    It is impossible for ME (KOS) to be racist against white people when Im half white and half black, not to mention that the most important people in my life are my grand parents who are 100 percent white.

    Now the rest of my family is white also, my mother, brother and sisters are all white, and last but not least my girlfriend is white, I know for a fact that I loves both races and I do not look at people by color, Im a educated human being who happens to be a ultimate fighter, so for you folks that are trying create a situation that does not exist find something better to do!!!

    Thank You

    Josh Koscheck










    as much as i understand what he was saying, i still can't like the guy. however, he is the lesser of two evils :o

    I like how instead of addressing the comment he actually made, he ignores it completely and instead builds his resume as a lover of white people.

    Seriously, when anyone makes a racist comment, there is NO way to back track and correct. i.e. "I didn't mean it, it was a joke. I have a lot (insert race here) friends."

    I think a truly advanced culture wouldn't be so uptight about racial humor. I call my girlfriend a beaner and she calls me a towelhead...its all good:dunno:

    I'm hispanic :hsugh: and I always make racially insensitive comments regarding my own race. Half-nigga needed to apologize for being an offensive asshole.

    Besides being half white and half black is a whole different race than being good ol fashion country white.

    Too bad he's gonna lose to gsp and not catch a beating from Matt Hughes! as well.

    Oh, I agree it's fine with people you are comfortable with, I do the same. But not in a written statement.

    Yeah, I see your point - a word only has the power you give it. But this is different than just using a racist term because what he is saying is that people of a certain race are inferior to others. He's a fucking dickhead.

    agreed, i like that he didnt take it back or appologize.
