Josh Koscheck will be taking on
Dustin Hazelett this weekend as part of the undercard fight at UFC 82: Pride of a Champion.
Koscheck was asked
last week if he was upset with the fact that he was placed within the undercard as opposed to the televised PPV main fight card.

"Not really, it’s whatever the UFC wants they’re gonna do. I
could be pissed off, I could be upset about it but I’m still getting paid the

me then that could take away from the actual fight, so I’m just focused on
winning the fight and that’s it."

what, win, lose or draw I always bring the fight…I think it’s that probably that
those guys (referring to Diego Sanchez and Josh Koscheck) are both great
fighters but…pretty much every one of my fights is exciting so its not a crap
shoot when you are putting me against Sakara whether or not that fight’s gonna
