San Antonio, Texas – Texas Trophy Hunters Association (TTHA) wants to remind you that 9X UFC® champion and Hall of Famer, Matt Hughes, host of TTHA’s TROPHY HUNTERS TV®, will be facing AKA welterweight, Josh Koscheck at UFC 135. Matt was originally scheduled to take on Diego Sanchez. Sanchez had to withdraw from the fight due to a hand injury.
Koscheck last fought welterweight division champion Georges St. Pierre 9 months ago, when he sustained a broken orbital bone. You may remember Koschek from UFC®’s The Ultimate Fighter 1″ TV series.
When asked to provide his thoughts about the upcoming event, Matt stated, “I’m looking forward to the fight with Koscheck. The opponent change should not affect me as Josh has as much time to train for me as I do him. My schedule will stay full. After the fight I will go into full time hunting.”
