Stephan Bonnar Wants To Kick Josh Koscheck’s A– Over T-Shirt Lawsuit

Most people don’t comment on pending litigation. Stephan Bonnar isn’t most people. If you haven’t heard, Josh Koscheck is suing Bonnar’s t-shirt company NGUAGE for using his likeness (well. sort of) on one of their Garbage Pail Kids-inspired t-shirts. Other fighters such as GSP, Brock Lesnar, Roy Nelson and Matt Hamill have been cool with it, but Koscheck wasn’t and sued.

Bonnar is equally unhappy about the situation and wants to kick Koscheck’s ass because of it. At least that’s what he told a group of UFC fans in Vancouver last weekend (see MMA Fighting’s video below) and MMA Fight Corner Radio the week before that. Via Five Knuckles:

“Not in my division, but overall probably Koscheck,” Bonnar said when asked who rubbed him the wrong way. “Mainly because I started a new t-shirt line called Trash Talking Kids, kinda a parody of the old Garbage Pail Kids from the 80′s except with UFC fighters. He actually inspired the idea, he talks so much s**t in the Daley fight and after the fight. The whole time I see Koscheck talking s**t to him on the ground, I thought it was hilarious and I was carrying on about it.

“Since then we made a whole bunch more. He got wind of it and he didn’t like it and I tried to explain it to him firsthand. ‘Like, look we’re doing them for all the fighters. It’s kinda a joke, just cartoon versions of the fighters.’  His version is called Josh Koshbygosh and he kinda looks like a Cabbage Patch doll, because he really does. Anyway, so he didn’t like it. Turns out we won’t be able to sell his but we will be able to sell the other ones. I didn’t think his was gonna sell too much anyway. We’re getting hit up his lawyers at the moment, it’s been a pain in the ass. So if anyone rubs me the wrong way, it’ll be Koscheck for sicking his lawyers on me.

“I would drop a lot of weight to fight him.”

Interestingly, Josh Koscheck is being represented by former UFC heavyweight Christian Wellisch who now practices law in the San Jose area.

    i got koscheck winning that fight hahaha bonnar sucks his record is 13-7 thats not good. josh fought gsp…. who has bonnar fought that he beat??? jardine??? he needs to worry about lhw divison not the ww. he stinks and his shirts are the only thing keeping him paid.

    • MrMiagi

      Why do you ask who Bonnar fought that he beat and at the same time mention that Kos fought GSP? I don’t remember Josh beating GSP, I only remember him being dominated on the ground then on his feet ;)

      • Awwaters

        Agreed miagi Koscheck hasn’t really beat any big names and never deserved a title shot

  • ass


  • aalvarez

    Bonnar and Forrest catapaulted MMA after their TUF Finale. Kosheck should show love and stop being a dick head.

    I like how Bonnar threw in the jab saying. “I didn’t think he was gonna sell too much anyway”. Good stuff :-)

  • warriordave927

    yeah,who the f would buy a koscheck shirt anyway, his mom maybe and i bet she’d like the shirt,make a cathweight fight at 185 and let em go at it

    • sam_snee

      bonnar could never make 185

      • warriordave927

        Yeah I guess he is too big to make that,but I think if this fight were to ever happen(seems pretty unlikely) it would only be fair to koscheck for bonar to drop more than kos has to gain since bonar is so big

        anybody know what their walk around weights are
