The funny thing about it is he is SO BASIC. His entire fighting repertoire consists of a jab, an inside leg kick, superman punches and take downs, which makes his performances that much more impressive. His post fight interview is something of interest as well. GSP states that Koscheks punches were wild loopy while his punches were straight. That is a basic fundamental of boxing, the straight punches will always beat loopy(wild) punches because they arrive at their target faster(assuming both punches were thrown at the same speed of course). Joe Rogan spoke about how people were going to start using the jab more often, which shouldn't come to a surprise since the majority of MMA fighers cannot throw a punch correctly. Its no coincidence that GSPs boxing application and knowledge dramatically improved after training with Freddie Roach, I'd almost call GSPS victory of Koschek a tribute to Freddie Roach and more importantly how sound knowledge and application of boxing can impact the constantly evolving MMA sport.
