Josh Koscheck Return to Octagon as a Middleweight Fighter
Josh Koscheck tweeted his return inside the Octagon as a middleweight fighter for the upcoming UFC 139 in San Jose.
The anticipated return of the former welterweight title contender, Josh Koshcheck, in the Octagon is soon to come. The former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ confirmed on Sunday that he will have a match for the upcoming UFC 139 on November 19 in San Jose. The announcement has been made on his Twitter page.
“My next fight is in San Jose, Cali Nov. 19th, good chance fighting at 185lbs. Should know real soon who.”
Josh Koscheck haven’t fought at middleweight since his time in the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ reality show over six years ago. However, he has been flirting with the idea over the last few months. The American Kickboxing Academy fighter has been out of action since a unanimous decision loss to current welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, at UFC 124 last year. After the said bout, Josh Koscheck suffered a broken orbital bone that needs some serious time off for recovery.
If Koscheck does indeed fight at 185lbs, there’s a long list of fighters that he might face upon his return to action. However, there’s a name that pops to his mind, and its the former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ finalist — Stephan Bonnar. The two fighters had engaged in a war of words on Twitter, and then through the legal system after the latter’s clothing line – ‘Trash Talkin’ Kids’ – made a shirt with Josh Koscheck’s likeness on it.
The former title contender threatened legal action, and the two have been verbally fighting ever since. There is no word however at this time if Stephen Bonnar would consider or even could drop down to 185lbs for a possible fight with him.View Article Source »
