Josh Koscheck was poised to make his return from injury at 185 pounds, that is until an intriguing bout with UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes was laid out on the table for him.

The former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor has been asking for a shot at Hughes for years, and when his original opponent Diego Sanchez fell out due to injury, Koscheck jumped at the chance to take the fight.

Koscheck has been out for several months due to an eye injury, but as soon as he could start training again, he was in the gym and he’s focused and ready for his fight at UFC 135.

Koscheck talks about why he was considering 185 and about the upcoming bout with Hughes.
