Georges St. Pierre used a strong left jab and consistent leg kicks en route to a dominant unanimous decision win over Josh Koscheck tonight in Montreal, Quebec. Early on Koscheck was largely able to negate the wrestling game of the UFC welterweight champion, however, he was unable to stop St. Pierre's left jab which had closed the challenger's eye as the fight wore on.
Despite trying to step up his attacks in the fourth and fifth round, Koshcheck was unable to land any telling strikes to St. Pierre, who continued to punish the AKA fighter with strikes. As the final bell sounded Koscheck embraced the man who he had relentlessly criticized over the last few weeks, before a unanimous decision was announced for St.Pierre.
