Team Koscheck’s Marc Stevens (12-5) vs. Team GSP’s Cody McKenzie (11-0)

Dana does the intros and fight-format recap, referee Steve Mazzagatti gets the action started, Cody waves off a call for a touch of the gloves, and we’re underway. Cody charges in, and Marc checks a leg kick and immediately shoots for a takedown. Cody hits the deck but locks in a guillotine, and Marc’s immediately in escape mode. Cody wraps his legs around one of opponent’s, and within seconds, Marc is clearly asleep from the patented choke. The ref halts the fight, Cody celebrates the victory, and Team Koscheck and its head coach sits in absolutely stunned silenced.

“Cody did what he does best,” Georges says.

“Koscheck was absolutely [expletive] horrified when Stevens gets choked out unconscious by Georges St-Pierre’s No. 6 pick,” Dana says with a laugh. “Absolutely horrified.”

Josh and Marc admit their shock while Team GSP simply smiles and quietly celebrates back in the dressing room.

“Listen to me guys,” Georges quickly announces. “You remember when they won the fight and hit the wall all cocky? I don’t want this [expletive] on my team. I want you to be nice.”

Cody knows Josh would’ve rubbed in a loss if he fell short against Marc. But with direction from Georges, he knows to be the better man.

Next door in the Team Koscheck dressing room, there’s absolutely dead silence until Nam finally speaks up.

“Wow” is about all he can muster.
