Josh Koscheck will look to make his return to the Octagon November 19 at UFC 139: Velasquez vs Dos Santos in San Jose, CA after almost a year layoff. Koscheck built his way up to a title fight against welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre back in Dec. 2010 where he suffered a five round jab assault by the champ.

Koscheck will now look to once against rise to the top, but this time in a new heavier weight class as he says it will ‘likely be at  the 185 lb. middleweight division.’ The home of the dominating champ Anderson Silva and competition such as Vitor Belfort, Brian Stann and old friend Chris Leben.

Koscheck a product of San Jose, CA based AKA will fight alongside his teammate Cain Velasquez on the card, who will look to make his first title defense against the fast-handed Junior dos Santos. If Koscheck makes his debut at middleweight, who would make a good challenge for the evolved wrestler? Rumor has it  will be “Short Fuse” himself, Ed Herman says ESPN UK.
