Report: Josh Koscheck Accepts Bout Against Matt Hughes At UFC 135

Less than an hour after Diego Sanchez pulled out of his scheduled co-main event at UFC 135 against Matt Hughes (45-8), the UFC may have already found a replacement. Former welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (15-5) sent out this pair of tweets late Monday afternoon.

Koscheck was priming for a move to middleweight on the main card of UFC 139, however those plans may have been put on hold with Monday's announcement. MMA Nation will continue to update you on the situation as it develops.
