Josh Koscheck has never been the most popular fighter with the UFC fanbase.

The former No. 1 contender to the welterweight crown has enjoyed a love/hate relationship with the MMA community spawning from his days on the original season of The Ultimate Fighter. That being said, the villain role has never seemed to bother Koscheck.

The former NCAA Division I wrestling champion brings his "black hat" back into the Octagon for the first time in nine months when he faces Robbie Lawler this Saturday night at UFC 157. The bout will be Koscheck's first appearance since dropping a close decision to surging contender Johny Hendricks at UFC on Fox 3, where Lawler's return to the Octagon has been more than eight years in the making.

While MMA fans have always shown their distaste for Koscheck, it appears his lack of popularity also spills over to his fellow fighter...at least in the case of Ian McCall.

During a recent video breakdown of the upcoming throwdown between Koscheck and Lawler, "Uncle Creepy" told Bleacher Report's own Jeremy Botter he hopes the Strikeforce convert "knocks the f*** out of Koscheck."

While the flyweight staple ultimately picked Koscheck to win this weekend's tilt, he had no problems adding a few more choice words for the UFC veteran.

After McCall said, "nobody likes Koscheck," he went on to add the perennial contender was "always the bridesmaid and never the bride."
