UFC Quick Quote: Josh Koscheck coming back for two more fights

Forget Carmen Sandiego. Where in the world is Josh Koscheck?

Ryan Pierse

"I've been training my whole life. I've never had a break. I feel like I need to get away and take some time off and enjoy life. At this point, I'm still coming back. I have two more fights on my contract, and I plan on fighting those out and seeing if I want to continue. I'm obligated to two more fights with the UFC. I've been called twice for fights, and I told the UFC, ‘no.' I'm not ready yet. Probably at the end of this month, I'll start focusing more on getting back into fight shape."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender, Josh Koscheck, is not hanging up the gloves just yet. But one of the original Ultimate Fighters tells ESPN he was in dire need of a break from mixed martial arts (MMA), evidenced by his three-fight losing streak that culminated with a blistering knockout loss to the surging prospect Tyron Woodley. Now that "Kos" has shaken off the cobwebs, expect the wheels to start turning by the end of this month and with any luck, fights fans could see the longtime veteran back inside the Octagon by year's end. But against who? Let's hear a few suggestions in the comment section below.
