Josh Koscheck unofficially accepts the fight with Matt Hughes at UFC 135Posted on September 6, 2011, 01:33 PM by Anton Gurevich
Speaking via his Twitter account, former UFC Welterweight title challenger Josh "Kos" Koscheck revealed about accepting the fight with Matt Hughes in co-main event attraction of this month's UFC 135: Jones vs. Rampage. Here's the word:
"Oh ya 19 days then or something like that!!!! Either way it looks like I am in to fight matt Hugh if he takes it????"
"He wants big-name fighters. He's getting near the end of his career. I think he'll take the fight because it's good for the sport and good for the UFC. I'm a big-name fighter, so he can take that and run with it. I put it out there. I told UFC I'd do it, and if Matt Hughes is man enough, he'll step up and do it. I think he'll do it. I think he'll take the fight."
Koscheck, 15-5 in Mixed Martial Arts, has been out of action since getting beat-up for five rounds by Georges St. Pierre in the main event of UFC 124 in Montreal. Despite sharing a lot of common opponents in their Octagon run (I counted at least 3), Josh Koscheck and Matt Hughes never faced each other inside the cage. Looks like a healthy fight for the UFC Welterweight division.
UFC 135 will take pace on September 24, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
