The last few years haven’t been the best for Koscheck, evident from his 0-6 run since 2012. He had a highly successful collegiate wrestling career that saw him earn Division I All-American honors four times, including winning a national championship, before he made his UFC debut on “The Ultimate Fighter “, where he would lose in the semifinals to Diego Sanchez.

Koscheck went on to have a very successful MMA career, including a welterweight title shot against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 124.

However he now finds himself incapable of competing with young fighters, despite being in the best shape of his life. Josh, however, didn’t completely snubbed the possibility of a future comeback.
