i'll skip to the good stuff....

" 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.

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."

Hate is such a strong word.

So I'll avoid sharing my opinion about Koscheck.

I don't know what's worse, Hughes ducking (supposedly) koscheck, or Koschek calling out an old, way past his prime Hughes, thinking that beating him will mean something now. Oh wait, I do know which is worse

Remember, Koscheck was calling Hughes out back when Hughes was still in his prime. Now Koscheck is calling him out for ducking him for so long.

like I said, I don't know which is worse. Koscheck wants an easy win and he can get it from Hughes. Koscheck should be looking to get back into the title picture and I'm afraid fighting Hughes isn't gonna put him there. But I understand that he feels a need to fight him and its gonna happen so that's that

not only that, but being out of action for like 10 months, why not get back on track with an "easy" fight? after he beats Hughes, then he can get back to fighting top 15 guys and so on

The fight never made sense and it was never offered to Hughes. How is he ducking him?

Also, maybe I'm just having a memory lapse, but I don't remember Kos calling him out when he was "in his prime". Maybe you and I disagree on when he started his decline though.
