Josh Koscheck, a former contender in the UFC’s welterweight division, posted on Twitter late Sunday night that he is being asked by Cesar Gracie to welcome Nick Diaz back to the Octagon.

Diaz is suspended until February due to a failed post-fight drug test following a loss to Carlos Condit. He announced his retirement after the match, but has said he wishes to return, fighting the suspension in court.
Koscheck was knocked out of a bout with Jake Ellenberger due to a training injury. “Kos” added that he’d “like to fight (before) Feb…..” but that the opportunity to meet Diaz might be too much to pass up.
