Koscheck interested in fights with Maia, Diaz

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Though he was hoping to fight by the end of the year, Josh Koscheck will wait for the calendar to turn.

When he returns, the former UFC welterweight title challenger has a few ideas of whom he’d like to fight. It’s a short list, but it’s a veritable who’s-who of the 170-pound class.

Koscheck (17-6 MMA, 15-6 UFC) on Tuesday named Nick Diaz, Demian Maia, Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald as opponents he’s interested in.
