Nine months after UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre literally broke his face, Josh Koscheck climbs back into the cage Saturday. Koscheck (17-5) steps in for the injured Diego Sanchez against Hall of Famer Matt Hughes (46-8) in the co-main event of UFC 135 in Denvers Pepsi Center. "Im back," Koscheck told a media conference call Monday. "Ive just got to go back out this Saturday night and prove that Im back." Koscheck needed surgery after GSP broke his orbital bone with a jab in the first round last December at UFC 124 in Montreal. St-Pierre went on to win a lopsided five-rounded decision, with 110 significant strikes compared to Koschecks 16, according to FightMetric. Koscheck, 33, is no stranger to pain. The California-based fighter endured neck surgery as a collegiate wrestler -- and hacked off his toe with a hatchet when he was four. But he says that pain didnt compare to the eye injury. "I had a lot of nerve damage done in the face and the face is very sensitive," Koscheck said. "The nerve damage in the face magnifies the pain level in your body a lot more. It was a lot of pain. I got through it with pain pills and morphine that night. "It was a fun experience needless to say that I dont want to go though ever again," he added dryly. The damage was so severe that Koscheck had to drive from Montreal to Boston to have surgery after the fight, since doctors would not let him fly. Koscheck took three months off to recover after the GSP loss -- and "focus on some other areas outside of fighting" -- but says he never doubted that he would fight again. He says he went back to basics, with a special focus on head movement to cut down on the number of punches he absorbs. A native of Fresno, he worked with American Kickboxing Academy teammates like Daniel Cormier, Muhammed (King Mo) Lawal, Luke Rockhold and Mike Pyle in San Jose as they prepared for a recent Strikeforce card. For Koscheck, Saturday marks his 19th fight in the UFC. The sharp-tongued welterweight has kept busy since making his mark as one of the villains of Season 1 of "The Ultimate Fighter." He volunteered to replace Sanchez and acknowledged he had considered moving up to middleweight earlier this year to stay busy since most of the top 170-pounders were booked up. "Fighting Matt Hughes is a good comeback fight for me," said Koscheck. "I think the fans deserved this fight a long time ago. Now were getting the opportunity to do it." Hughes said he was originally told he would be fighting Jon Fitch in place of Sanchez, but then it was changed to Koscheck. The 37-year-old Hughes will be making his 25th appearance in the UFC -- and the first since B.J. Penn knocked him out in just 21 seconds at UFC 123 last November. Hughes and Penn have since trained together. "Hes just got a lot to offer," Hughes said of Penn, a former lightweight and welterweight champion. "Hes a very, very intelligent fighter, grappler." The fighting farmer from Hillsboro, Ill., says competition is what keeps him involved in the sport these days. "I consider myself a lucky man. I love going to the gym every day -- twice a day," explained Hughes "I love travelling with my buddies. All in all, its a great lifestyle." Saturdays fight is the last on Hughes current contract but he says the outcome wont affect his fighting future. "Ill talk to the UFC and well figure out what we want to do." www.raidersjerseyssale.com/iphone-case/ . You can watch Game 1 live on TSN at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt.

Alonso took the lead for good with 13 laps to go and won by 10 seconds ahead of Lotus Kimi Raikkonen. Pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes finished third, just two tenths of a second ahead the hard-finishing Sebastian Vettel. Red Bulls Vettel retains the championship lead after three of 19 races, but his advantage is just three points over Raikkonen, with Alonso moving up to third, ahead of Hamilton. So authoritative was Alonsos performance that his team was cautioning him in the closing stages not to push too hard, only for the Spaniard to reply that he wasnt. After the race, he said he won while retaining "some pace in the pocket." "It was a fantastic race for us from the start," Alonso said. "There were no big problems and the tire degradation was better than expected. "In the two races weve finished we have got second place and victory, so our start of the 2013 season is very good. We are very optimistic for the rest of the season." The victory was Alonsos 31st career win, tying him with Nigel Mansell on the all-time list, behind only Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna. In a race dominated by tire strategy, the front three runners all used their strong early pace on the softer tires to establish an early advantage and all pitted inside six laps. While the likes of Vettel, McLarens Jenson Button and Saubers Nico Hulkenberg -- who all started on the harder tires -- profited initially by moving to the front of the field, the early leaders used fresher rubber to reclaim the advantage in the latter half of the race. Button finished fifth ahead of Ferraris Felipe Massa. Toro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo put in a strong performance for a career-best seventh place, finishing ahead of Force Indias Paul di Resta, Lotus Romain Grosjean and Hulkenberg. Raikkonens effort in finishing second was made more creditablle by the fact he drove most of the race with a damaged front nose and wing after crashing into the back of McLarens Sergio Perez, who put the squeeze on the Finn, forcing him off the track, and then into the back of the Mexicans car.dddddddddddd "What the hell is he doing?" the furious Raikkonen shouted on his radio. "That didnt help, but luckily it didnt affect too much the handling," Raikkonen said after the race. "Without the damage I would have been quite a bit faster." Hamilton carried little expectation of victory into the race despite his pole position because the Mercedes cars had quickly degraded their tires all weekend, so the Briton was thankful to finish on the podium. "They were a little bit too fast for us," Hamilton said. "My tires were shot at the end." Defending champion Nico Rosberg of Mercedes and Mark Webber of Red Bull had rough outings. Rosberg came into the pits four times and was forced to retire before reaching the halfway point of the race because of a problem with his rear anti-roll bar. Webber -- who started from the pitlane after his car ran out of fuel in qualifying -- charged to 11th before crashing into Toro Rossos Jean-Eric Vergne, pitting. Then he emerged with a poorly connected right rear wheel that came off before the lap was through. Webber was penalized for causing the collision, with stewards relegating him three grid places at next weekends Bahrain GP. Saubers Esteban Gutierrez received a five-place grid penalty for crashing into the back of Adrian Sutils Force India on the fifth lap, ending the race for both drivers. If not for a premature retirement in the Malaysian GP, Alonso would be the championship leader, but the Spaniard was not yet ready to claim he is the title favourite. "Its a little bit too early to say," Alonso said. "We maybe need to wait until after the summer break to see the clear contenders. "Lotus, Red Bull and Mercedes are in the same position as us -- I dont see anyone has an advantage." ' ' '
