Josh Koscheck has handed in his Christmas wishlist to the UFC early this year, naming which opponents he wants in 2013.

The abrasive welterweight has not fought since May, when he dropped a split decision to Johny Hendricks. He was supposed to meet Jake Ellenberger at UFC 151, but was forced out of the bout by injury.

Now Koscheck does not expect to fight again this year, so he has listed the men he wants to fight in 2013. And there are plenty of options open to the American.

"Doesn't look like the UFC has a fight for me until 2013. So I'll just train and get better," Koscheck tweeted.

"I'd like to fight Nick [Diaz], Demian Maia, Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald, any of those guys will do it.

"They (the UFC) know I'll fight anyone. "I even said I'd fight at 185 if needed."
