The UFC 135 card in Denver on September 24th will see a change in the co-main event, as UFC President Dana White announced Monday via Twitter that Diego Sanchez has been forced out of his bout with Hall of Famer Matt Hughes due to injury.

"Diego Sanchez broke his hand. Looking for a replacement for Hughes," tweeted White.

That replacement was found quickly, as former title challenger and current contender Josh Koscheck eagerly accepted the short notice bout against the welterweight legend.

In the UFC 135 main event, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defends his crown against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.
