Top five ranked welterweight Josh Koscheck thought at one point his career as a mixed martial artist could be in jeopardy after an eye injury suffered in a welterweight title fight against Georges St. Pierre.
After returning in September, on short notice no less, and knocking out Matt Hughes, Koscheck is now looking to return again before the end of 2011 and discussed what type of fights he wants as his career could possibily be winding down:
"I_m a money fighter," Koscheck told MMAjunkie.com during this weekend_s UFC Fan Expo Houston 2011. "I want big fights.
"I_m 33. I_ve been fighting for a long time now. I just want big fights. I_ll fight anybody at 185 or 170. I don_t care. I just want big fights, big names."
"In December of last year, I didn_t think I would really ever fight again because of the eye injury (a broken orbital bone suffered in a losing effort to take GSP Welterweight belt). I wasn_t sure. There was some uncertainty."
