Josh Koscheck Sidelined for Six Months from UFC After Surgery

Josh KoscheckJosh Koscheck will be sidelined at least six months from UFC action as he recovers from surgery that repaired a broken orbital suffered in his Dec. 11 loss to welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre at UFC 124, Koscheck recently told MMAjunkie:

“Georges beat me fair and square that night. He’s a better fighter, but I think that the first punch of the fight was when I broke my eye. So I thought that it was definitely bad luck on my behalf. That’s life. He threw the punch, and it was a good punch. I definitely think the fight would have been a lot different if that wasn’t the case.

“I’ll continue to grind and build my way up to being the No. 1 contender and put myself back in the position. Right now, that’s so far away for me. I still have five months of recovery.”

St-Pierre next puts his title on the line against Jake Shields in the main event of UFC 129 on April 30 in Toronto before potentially moving up to middleweight for a superfight with champion Anderson Silva.
