Josh Koscheck was hoping to fight one more time in 2012, but it looks like he will be waiting until the New Year to return to action.

The former Ultimate Fighter season one competitor has been out of action since May when he lost a close, split decision to Johny Hendricks at UFC on Fox 3.

He was expected to return in September to face Jake Ellenberger at UFC 151, but an injury sidelined Koscheck and pushed him out of the fight.

Now that he’s healthy again, Koscheck was hoping to get scheduled for a fight as soon as possible, but according to the fighter’s latest message via Twitter, he’s going to have to wait until 2013.

“Doesn’t look like the UFC has a fight for me until 2013. So I’ll just train and get better,” Koscheck wrote on Tuesday.

When he does come back, there are a few names on his wish list for opponents, but Koscheck has never been too much in the business of hand picking who he will fight.

“I’d like to fight Nick (Diaz), Demian Maia, Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald, any of those guys will do it,” said Koscheck.

The former NCAA champion wrestler has even offered to venture back up to middleweight, something he’s done multiple times in the past when talking about stepping up when the UFC needed him.

“They know I’ll fight anyone,” Koscheck wrote. “I even said I’d fight at 185 if needed.”

It remains to be seen who Koscheck will face, but many of the names on his list would be available for fights in 2013 with the exception of Rory MacDonald who fights at UFC on Fox 5 on Dec. 5 against B.J. Penn.
