Josh Koscheck will settle the score with Georges St-Pierre when he gets healthy.

But instead of tangling again with the welterweight champion inside a cage, he'll do it on an ice rink for now.

"We have a bet to settle," Koscheck told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) during his first public appearance since he lost to St-Pierre at UFC 124.

That's something to look forward to for Koscheck, who said he's out for a minimum of six months as he heals from a broken orbital bone he suffered in the fight, which took place Dec. 11 in Montreal.

St-Pierre has asked for a rematch, at least when it comes to the home-run challenge he lost during the filming of "The Ultimate Fighter 12." The two served as opposing coaches on the reality show before squaring off in Canada.

"As soon as I get healthy, we've got a little one-on-one competition," Koscheck said just prior to signing autographs at the one-year anniversary celebration for the first UFC Gym opening.

The one-time contender underwent surgery in Boston nine days after the fight and flew home to Fresno, Calif., in time for Christmas.

Doctors have limited his physical activity to walking as he recovers. Koscheck said the entire right side of his face is still numb. A prominent scar now resides underneath his right eye...

I'm now feeling sorry for Koscheck. He managed to get under GSP's skin during TUF, and now he will pay for the rest of his life, in and outside the ring.


Pierre will beat Koscheck in every aspect of life, even in the baseball rematch when it comes around.


I can't wait to watch it play out.

Anyone see GSP skate before? Koscheck played as a kid, I'd put my money on him in a hockey game.

I don't mind Koscheck when he's not trying to sell a fight.
