UFC Star Josh Koscheck's Ill Fated Presidential Pursuit

New, 2 comments



Josh Koscheck, the former NCAA champion, jumped into the ultimate fight of them all last week - the battle for the Presidency. While MMA stars like Chael Sonnen and Matt Lindland have entered the political arena, Koscheck is the first to do so on the national level (even with tongue planted in cheek). His platform seems mostly based on limiting free speech and shutting down internet warriors.

Unfortunately, Koscheck hasn't thought his plan through. The wrestling star is actually not eligible to run for President.

According to the United States Constitution, the 33 year old welterweight contender isn't eligible to be President of these United States:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.
