“You probably saw that I was considering going to middleweight, and the reason I wanted to fight at middleweight was everyone at 170 pounds who meant anything was already locked up with a fight.To be honest, and mentioning no names, the people the UFC wanted me to fight just didn’t interest me at all. The names they offered me were just “paydays” — fights to get on a card and have a fight, take a shower get a payday and go home and I don’t want to fight those guys,” Koscheck explained.

“After the GSP fight, I needed to come back and remind everyone what I am all about and if I couldn’t do that at 170 pounds I figured maybe as a one-off just to have a major fight to come back with, I’d take a fight at 185 pounds. Realistically, I asked to fight Wanderlei Silva, Chris Leben and even Rich Franklin at 185.”

Hughes is more of a fight he wants because Koscheck’s perceives the former champion to be “ducking” him.

“But then last week I got word Matt Hughes, who has avoided me for years, needed an opponent for UFC 135 in Denver on Sept. 24. I’ve called out Hughes for so long but he’s always avoided me. When he was on top and one of the top in the division, he used his position to avoid fighting me and all the AKA guys,” Koscheck wrote.

“But when Diego Sanchez pulled out hurt with three weeks to go, I knew the UFC would have no choice but to try to talk Hughes into fighting me. Like I knew he would, he tried to suggest fighting Jon Fitch instead, knowing full well Fitch is still recovering from shoulder surgery. I tweeted that I’d accepted the fight and was ready, just to put pressure on Hughes to quit bitching and take the fight. I wanted to make it so that if he did turn the fight down, all the fans would know that he bitched out. He had nowhere else to go and I’ve finally got my fight with Matt Hughes.”
He also said;
"I'm a big-name fighter, so he can take that and run with it," Koscheck told USA Today. "I put it out there. I told UFC I'd do it, and if Matt Hughes is man enough, he'll step up and do it.

When you look up Idiot in the dictionary there is a picture of Koschek.

Translation: he used his position (as Welterweight Champion and/or #1 contender) to avoid fighting me (not ranked in the top 5 at the time) and all the AKA guys (who weren't ranked at the time).

Instead Matt "chose" to fight the number #1 contenders (who he was professionally obligated to fight).

Koscheck is speaking complete nonsense. Matt never ducked anyone and isn't the UFC matchmaker. Just cause they called him out doesn't mean the fight is going to happen.

Show some respect to the champ who put WW wrestling on the map. If it weren't for Hughes, WW wrestlers wouldn't have seen their potential in MMA.

Being the greatest welterweight of all time and training for a fight. Cost full lifetime commitment.
Switching opponents on short notice. Cost harder longer days of training
Getting to straighten a nasty curly haired fro and shut his mouth while doing so. Priceless....

Exactly!! Very well put... Too bad a lot of these fools who win a few quick fights and brand themselves as the best don't appreciate what he has done...
