Leading up to last weekend’s UFC event, welterweight participant Josh Koscheck called himself a “gold digger” based on his willingness to fight any opponent within reason as long as the money is right. In that vein, Koscheck has mentioned he would fight at a heavier weight than normal if necessary and was even linked to a bout with Stephan Bonnar this past November.
Recently Koscheck was asked for his thoughts on potential 185-pound match-ups where he responded with three specific opponents.
“I think Vitor Belfort would be a fun fight,” Koscheck replied. “I think Wanderlei Silva would be a fun fight at 185. Michael Bisping would be a great fight. I’d love to trash that guy.”
However, Koscheck’s sights are currently set on his future at 170 pounds with back-to-back wins under his belt since dropping a decision to champion Georges St. Pierre. Asked to pick between bouts with Nick Diaz or Carlos Condit, Koscheck said he expected to fight both down the road with a preferred route putting him against the Stockton scrapper sooner than later.
“I’ll smack Nick around first and then Carlos Condit second.”
