Josh Koscheck set to return at UFC 139

UFC welterweight Josh Koscheck will make his return to the Octagon at the November UFC 139 event.  However, the return may come in the middleweight division.

No opponent has been announced.  Koscheck last competed in December and dropped a five-round decision to UFC champion Georges St-Pierre.  A broken orbital suffered in that bout has kept Koscheck out of action ever since.

The event will take place on Nov. 19 from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.
