“One that would be big for my heart and soul would be Josh Koscheck. The number one question that everyone always asks me is, ‘When are you going to kick that Josh Koscheckâ€™s ass?’ So hopefully, maybe in June or July, we can go ahead and set that fight up.”
UFC welterweight Diego Sanchez tells MMA Weekly that he hopes to face Josh Koscheck again later this year. Sanchez defeated Koscheck via split decision on the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter” but was defeated in their sanctioned rematch at UFC 69 in early-2007. That fight, however, was influenced by a severe staph infection Sanchez contracted prior to the April showdown.
Sanchez (18-2, 7-2 UFC) dropped back-to-back fights against Koscheck and Jon Fitch before defeating David Bielkheden at UFC 82 earlier this month.
Koscheck (10-2, 8-2 UFC) was defeated by Georges St. Pierre in August before rebounding with a victory over Dustin Hazelett at UFC 82.
