If Nick Diaz (26-8 MMA, 7-5 UFC) has to fight at least once more before a title shot, Josh Koscheck (17-6 MMA, 15-6 UFC) figures it might as well be against him.

Koscheck recently mentioned Diaz, Demian Maia, Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald as targeted opponents for 2013.

Now, he said he's taking up Diaz trainer Cesar Gracie's challenge for the contenders to meet at the UFC's Super Bowl weekend show, which is expected to be UFC 157 on Feb. 2 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

"I am DOWN! Don't be scared Homie! #559 lol," Koscheck tweeted.

This is a good fight. It should test Diaz's maturity. Will he be ready for the takedown control? Or will he call Josh Koscheck a bitch for using wrestling techniques in a mixed martial arts contest?

Would love for this to happen. Two fighters that are shown as the bad guys of MMA. Could end up being a war. If the fight happens I believe Kos will try to get it to the floor because Diaz is less of a threat there. However, he has to get him there first. I say, whoever has the better game plan will take this one in the long run. Either Diaz via (t)ko or Kos via Sub. Thats what I'd be torn between.

There is no way Kos subs Diaz, if Kos wins it's by a decision

The only way to defeat a Diaz is by decision. If you put a Diaz in a dark alleyway with anyone, Diaz walks out.

Is there something I am missing here? The article said he is suspended until two days after UFC 157 is everyone assuming he is going to get out of his suspension early?

I believe he will still be suspended come 157.
I still think fight would happen unless
Gsp loses to condit. And then its Diaz vs gsp in Canada in 2013

way to piss on our parade

I don't know who to cheer for as I like both fighters (crazy I know), but for division implications I want Diaz to win

Exactly what I was thinking.... How can he fight Feb 2nd when he's not eligible to apply for a license until Feb 4th... I'd like to see Diaz on that card as much as anybody, considering his suspension is a joke, I hope he can appeal the date he can apply for a license somehow... Overeem gets 9 months for whatever he was doing, Diaz gets 12 months for being good at chilling out. Bizzaro world....

Kos will do what he's always done since his first loss to GSP and swing himself into a coma against a competent striker when he could win an EASY decision. I'm sorry but when Sean Sherk and Diego Sanches are pulling easy dec wins over Diaz its pretty evident a REAL wrestler would take 30-27 rapage.

Wasted talent for dollar bills.

Nick Diaz got out struck by KJ Noons 5 years ago but you don't see me ranting about how his boxing sucks. No doubt Diaz's weakest aspect is his wrestling but he looks like a much sharper fighter than he did 7 years ago.

I didn't do the math and I guess Koscheck didn't either.

He is on another level than he was years ago but when did he fight a single wrestler since he left the UFC....... Name one for me please.

Shamrock didnt even try to wrestle and BJ beat that ass before his taco bell diet took its toll. But youre right, being a better fighter means something whatsoever about his wrestling....
