Josh Koscheck Says Bridge With AKA Is ‘Over’ And ‘Burnt’

Former UFC welterweight contender Josh Koscheck will not be heading back to American Kickboxing Academy in the near future.

Since leaving AKA, Koscheck has discussed his displeasure with trainer Javier Mendez. Now, in a recent interview with Fight Hub TV, “Kos” discusses the problems in further detail.

The bridge over in San Jose is pretty much burnt. It’s nothing to do with anybody over there except one person and we know that’s Javier. I just wasn’t happy and it wasn’t the place for me anymore. I hope the gym burns to the ground. Hopefully nobody’s in it, but one person. If it burns down, I’m cool and we’ll be good.

Based out of Fresno, California and the Dethrone Base Camp, Koscheck has moved on.

It’s a new beginning to my life and I feel my career may have gotten a little bit longer.

Koscheck is set to return to action this September at UFC 151 against Jake Ellenberger.
