Top five ranked welterweight Josh Koscheck has thrown his name out there as a possible replacement for Diego Sanchez at UFC 135.

Sanchez was scheduled to face Matt Hughes but a broken hand has scrapped that bout leaving Hughes without an opponent.

Enter Koscheck, who challenged the former UFC Welterweight Champion while speaking to USAToday.com:

“He wants big-name fighters. He's getting near the end of his career. I think he'll take the fight because it's good for the sport and good for the UFC. I'm a big-name fighter, so he can take that and run with it. I put it out there. I told UFC I'd do it, and if Matt Hughes is man enough, he'll step up and do it. I think he'll do it. I think he'll take the fight.”
